Faculty of Electronics and Telecommunications
The academic Master programme Electronics has orientation on training of the students for continuation of studies at the Doctoral programme as well as for work in all enterprises and organisations where highly educated specialists in electronics are needed.
The programme consists of compulsory subjects which are taught to the extent necessary for deeper understanding of the courses in the major.
The latter cover sufficiently large spectrum of different areas of electronics (courses of compulsory choice).
From the list offered one can chose those necessary for students’ further career.
Particular attention at the programme is paid to the theory of electronics, to experiment techniques, to problems of design of electrical circuits and devices. A student may get acquainted with the programme approved by the Senate of RTU and respective semester plans at the website of RTU www.rtu.lv in the section “Studies”.
The programme ends with the elaboration of Master Thesis and its defence.
Electronics is the technology associated with electronic circuits and systems, and is one of the major branches of electrical engineering.
Electronics engineers use scientific knowledge of the behaviour and effects of electrons to design, develop and test components, devices, systems or equipment that use electricity as part of their source of power. These components include capacitors, diodes, resistors and transistors.
Electronics engineers usually work in cross-functional project teams with colleagues in other branches of engineering.
Work can be found in a variety of areas as electronics are used in many things including:
- medical instruments;
- mobile phones;
- radio and satellite communication;
Subfields of electronic engineering include:
- control engineering;
- signal processing;
- telecommunications engineering.
