This programme aims to provide students with knowledge and skills in the key aspects of communication, semiconductor, medical and embedded electronics. Students can specialise in either communications electronics (embedded systems, networking, etc.) or cognitive electronics (sensors, sensor networks, medical diagnostics, measurement systems). The programme is supported by the ELIKO Competence Centre and the CEBE Centre of Excellence.
The students also have a chance to take part in significant research projects (e.g. implantable devices for cardiac monitors, sensors and monitors for transplanted organs and tissues, material quality measurement systems, smart home and city systems).
The research and study areas are situated in modern facilities and are equipped with modern computers, software, measurement equipment and tools that provide excellent opportunities for the students to either study or conduct research. All students of the IT-field are offered practical placement and job opportunities in Estonia or abroad already during the studies which provides professional experience in the field.
- Develops high-level skills in aspects of semiconductor, medical and embedded electronics and communication technology
- Telecommunications and bionics
- Teaching staff are specialists in the field who are involved in key research projects
- Guest lecturers from the industry
- Enhances and broadens career opportunities in the rapidly changing communicative electronics industry
The programme provides the specialist knowledge and skills needed for a career leading to high-end technical or technology roles in communicative electronics. Possible future work positions include: designer of computer or automation systems and components, designer of electronics, monitoring and communication systems and their components, senior engineer, hardware developer, project manager, software engineer, etc.
