Fields of education
The Microelectronics and Technology study program aims to prepare specialists in the field of design of electronic circuits and systems, as well as in the fields of technology and materials for the electrical industry and other associated fields, as well as the preparation of students for the follow up Master´s studies.
The Department of Microelectronics and the Department of Electrotechnology provide the bachelor's program Microelectronics and Technology.
An extensive offer of compulsory, branch and extra-curricular subjects together with the semester and bachelor's thesis enables students to focus on the design and development of electronic circuits and systems, particle and material technology for electrotechnics, sensory and nanotechnology as well as alternative sources of energy, quality and control of production and many other areas.
In order to broaden the spectrum of its knowledge, the student can also choose the subjects of linguistic, economic, administrative or environmental subjects.
Bachelor's degree program graduate has a good knowledge of design and computer simulation of analogue and digital integrated circuits, design of electronic systems and applications of microelectronic circuits for instrumentation, analog and digital integrated circuit technology, electronic systems technology, programming of microcontrollers and FPGA circuits. The field of electrotechnical materials and production processes, the design and production of printed circuit boards, surface mounting technology, testing and measuring technology, renewable energy sources, economy and organization of production and business fundamentals. Alternatively, he/she also has knowledge of biomedical and clinical applications, additional knowledge from information and communication technologies.
Graduates of the Bachelor's program could be employed as professionals especially in the fields of design, construction and fabrication of electronic and electrotechnical devices and instruments with built-in intelligence (controlled by microprocessors, microcontrollers, PCs, Smart Phone or PDAs), integrated circuits and semiconductor devices, and surface mounting technology. They can also design and develop of electronic systems and custom integrated circuits, business and service activities, in lower management and managerial positions in electronic companies. Such high-level education enables the direct deployment of graduates into manufacturing, operational or service engineering and provides a good basis for completing the theoretical knowledge in a possible follow-up Master's degree study program.
Study plan creation
Courses are evaluated according to ECTS credits. The credit expresses an approximate weekly student's workload for the course. Credits for a given course are obtained after the prescribed completion, i.e. after awarding a credit, classified credit, or by passing an exam under the conditions of the BUT Rules of Study and Examination, the internal standard of the Rules for Organization of Studies at FEEC and the composition and content individually defined in each course.
In a three-year bachelor study, the student must earn at least 180 credits in the specified credit composition:
117 credits in compulsory courses,
49 credits in specified groups of compulsory elective (PV) courses,
9 credits in elective courses.
Obligatory courses are usually completed by the student in semesters and years as stated in the curriculum. If a student fails to complete a compulsory course in the prescribed manner, he / she must register it again in the following year of his / her studies.
Compulsory elective courses of profiling fundamentals (PVA) are field-oriented professional courses that profile the student into narrower areas of his / her interests.
Other compulsory (PVB) courses are other professional courses included in the offers of the departments of FEEC BUT. Their goal is to extend students' professional knowledge.
The student chooses to select PV courses in individual semesters so that at the end of his / her bachelor's degree he / she has at least the prescribed minimum of credits in each group of PV courses, while not obtaining the minimum number of credits in one group of PV courses cannot be compensated by exceeding the number of credits obtained in another group of PV courses.
During the study, students must complete two English courses (English for Bachelors, English for Electrical Engineering).
Elective courses extend the general knowledge of students. Courses are chosen by the student himself or herself from a full-faculty offer (FEEC departments) or from the other faculties of VUT (so-called free courses) and can pass them in any year or semester of bachelor study. Elective courses include Physical Education. If a student has not successfully completed an elective course, he / she may or may not write another academic year in the next academic year.
Students must obtain the corresponding electrotechnic qualification at the beginning of their study.
Availability for the disabled
All lecture rooms at the FEEC BUT allow disabled access; students, however, must meet the medical standards to acquire the necessary electrotechnical qualifications. In laboratory classes and practicals, students are required to independently operate measuring instruments and related equipment without endangering human health or damaging property.
What degree programme types may have preceded
The graduates may continue in a master's study programme.
