The search for optimal solutions in the highly complex architectures of electrical and software engineering necessitates not only engineering but economical considerations, as well. As a result, the scope of the programme must include design, research and management expertise at the same time. Besides theoretical knowledge they need to carry out design and development activities in the field of communication, instrumentation, and power industries to further perfect their practical skills. The curriculum also includes solving tasks in the fields of production and operation. Scientific groups are formed to encourage the students to do independent but supervised laboratory work. Project laboratory is one of the core parts of the studies which are dedicated to independent problem solving with the armoury of modern work stations and SW packages. The expertise of handling these tools are inevitable in pursuing an engineering career. In order to strengthen the transfer of knowledge and know-how between the university and industry, the faculty maintains close contact with well known multinational companies in the field of communication and computer industry.
