About the program

Open Electronic Systems cover the area of modern electronics, communications technology, radio and electronic systems, and advanced electronic technologies. The bachelor’s phase is designed as universally grounding for a wide range of following master’s programs. By its’ open-university character the OES clearly distinguishes from practically professional programs. 

The key features are: (1) University deepness and excellence, (2) Pyramid of education, (3) International openness.

University deepness and excellence

The study program is focused on talented students who will be given theoretically deep and timeless education, freed from the ballast of encyclopedic and overly profession-aimed subjects. 

The core form of teaching is a high quality lecture given by a lecturer who is a strong creative and research personality in his field. Individual homework is an important part of the studies. It develops an ability to work individually. Most routine seminars are eliminated. Seminar classes are held only when their necessity is indisputable. Laboratory, experimental and structural teaching covers knowledge from several theoretical subjects. It should demonstrate a mutual connection that leads to an appropriate result. The overall aim is to raise students who can see problems from above. We want to teach them critical thinking and show them the joy of cognition. These skills and habits will be the best deposit and a base for flexibility in the world of fast changing technologies. Not only our students but also institutions and companies, which will employ them in the future, will benefit from it. 

Pyramid of education

Education should have a broad foundation with enough hour-subsidy for the ‘base floors’ of education, which are: mathematics, physics, theory of signals a systems, theory of electromagnetic field, circuit theory and theory of physical electronics.  The knowledge should be built up gradually and consistently. Every level has to stand above a broader and more solid level. The bachelor’s phase is primarily perceived as grounding for the master’s period. It is not considered as a separate target. The bachelor’s period in its’ basic outlines should have common course without unwanted fragmentation. More significant segmentation will come not earlier than in the master’s period. The principle guaranties an excellent horizontal permeability through different study programs and universities. We use as much as we can the yet existing sources of excellence at both internal and external cooperate departments (e.g. CU, AS0). The bachelor’s program is designed very universally so it will work well as a quality preparation for a wide scale of subsequent programs in the master’s degree. About 50% of subjects in the master’s phase are defined as mandatory. The rest is optional. It is chosen by students from the wide offer of subjects offered by the Faculty of Engineering. 

International openness

The openness is bilateral. For foreign students (who study the whole program or just a semester or two) and also for international professors, visiting or permanently employed. University, that wants to play a significant role on an international field, must have internationally mixed academic staff and students. It must not be dependent on a Czech language. That helps to develop better competitive and incentive background for student and teachers. All studying materials are in English. Mixing Czech and international students will help the Czech students to gain required international compatibility, which is needed for the necessary excellence. The rule says English will be the teaching language if the lecturer or at least one of the students is a foreigner. The principle will be applied in initial semesters of a bachelor’s period only in a moderate form, so the transition is gentle for new students.
