CURRICULUM OUTLINE (120 ECTS)
General studies - include courses about entrepreneurship and business planning, Estonian language and culture, English for science and research, critical thinking, ethics and scientific literacy.
- Core studies - cover courses about embedded systems, data acquisition means and methods and real-time embedded systems.
- Special studies - students can specialise in Electronic Engineering (electronic system design, advanced robotics, cognitronics, microelectronics, networks of smart things, etc.), and Communication Engineering (system aspects in communications, mechatronics systems modelling and control, embedded systems, antennas and RF planning, etc.).
- Free choice courses - students can choose from the wide variety of courses offered at the university.
- Graduation thesis - students combine the knowledge and skills obtained during the studies into form of a compact research and development work related to communicative electronics.
IT industry requires specialists, who have the knowledge and skills to rapidly develop and enhance smart production processes, smart products and smart business models. This means creating complex autonomous systems that collect, exchange and process data, have the capability to efficiently adapt to the changes in operational environment. Electronics converts different phenomena and processes in the real world to meaningful digital data. Communication makes this data available to the user (both human and machine).
Rapid development of new technologies and concepts to employ them provides graduates of Communicative Electronics a wide range of job opportunities ranging from innovation start-ups to international corporations.
