Number of ECTS credits


Mode of study

Not applicable.

Entry knowledge

The subject knowledge on the Bachelor’s degree level is requested.

Rules for evaluation and completion of the course

The subject Radioelectronic measurements is evaluated in the following way: In order to get a credit, it is necessary to measure 8 laboratory tasks out of 9 possible ones. Laboratory teaching is evaluated during the semester and a maximum of 30 points can be obtained for it. The final exam consists of two parts (written and oral) and is evaluated for a total of 70 points. To successfully pass the exam, a minimum score of 35 points out of a possible 70 must be achieved.
The content and forms of instruction in the evaluated course are specified by a regulation issued by the lecturer responsible for the course and updated for every academic year.


Presenting principles of basic measurement methods for high frequency range. Presenting automation techniques, programs. Automation measurement setup.
The graduate is able: (a) to use basic measurement methods; (b) analyse measured data; (c) design modern automation measurement system; (d) realize the controlling program in LabView and Matlab.
