The programme has two main specialisations:

  • Electronic engineering
  • Communication Engineering

Each specialisation includes a set of compulsory subjects, which provides core knowledge and skills. A range of common elective subjects complement the core knowledge with flexibility and selected career paths in modern, dynamic, and converging technology sector. Each graduate will gain practical experiences from project-based collaboration with industry.

Programme structure

The students have opportunities to take part in significant research projects, or be involved in cooperation projects with industry (e.g. 5G/IoT smart systems, sensorics, biomedical applications, material quality measurement, production technology development, etc). The projects and teams are often interdisciplinary, combining electronics communication, automation, mechatronics, both hardware and software.

The research and study areas are situated in modern facilities and are equipped with modern computers, software, measurement equipment and tools that provide excellent opportunities for the students to either study or conduct research. Students of the IT-field are offered practical placement and job opportunities in Estonia or abroad already during the studies which provides professional experience in the field.

Why this programme?

  • Develops high-level skills in aspects of semiconductor, embedded electronics and communication technology
  • Teaching staff are specialists in the field and involved in key research projects
  • Project-based practice with industry
  • Programme enhances and broadens your career opportunities in the rapidly changing communicative electronics industry

The 2 year (120 ECTS) curriculum comprises the following modules:

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.

Career opportunities

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.
