Programme learning outcomes
  1. Ability to apply the knowledge to identify, formulate and solve non-typical problems related to electronics and telecommunications, to plan and to conduct adequate experiments, including measurements and numerical simulations also with the aid of self-developed methods and tools, to analyse and to interpret obtained results so as to draw conclusions.
  2. Ability to apply the engineering knowledge to design according to specific needs, and to critically analyse and to judge operation of electronic and telecommunication devices and systems, with consideration of non-technical factors; ability to formulate and to test hypotheses related to simple research problems in electronics and telecommunications.
