The graduates find employment especially in higher operational and managerial positions, in the field of construction, production, operation and repair of transport means. They can also advance themselves in the sphere of research and development or in higher positions of state and regional administration.
Branch of Study: Electrical Engineering and Electronic Systems in Transport
This course is conceived as a university study programme focused on electric drives, traction and transport energetics, safety technology and communication technology. The programme provides complex insight into problems of electrical engineering networks, devices, and systems in the transport system, their mutual connections and conflicts. By selecting the compulsory-elective subjects the students can specialize in the following fields: electrical drives, electrical tracks, power supply, electric traction, communication and safety devices in transport, microprocessor technology and automobile electronics. The graduates of this follow-up Master study programme have theoretical knowledge of general electrical engineering and electronics, further mainly in mathematics and physics. Their special knowledge is related, according to specialization, either to electrical drives and traction and power supply devices of electrical tracks, or to safety and communication devices. The graduates are able to perform technical managerial roles and conceptual activity especially in operation and control of electrical engineering devices or in production of such devices. They find employment in transport companies as well as at producers, suppliers and operators of transport means, power supply systems, electrical equipment of vehicles or communication and safety systems. They can also be an asset in construction and design departments of electrical engineering and electronic companies.
Branch of Study: Operational Reliability of Transport Means and Infrastructure
The aim of this course is to educate qualified specialists who are able to independently and promptly solve assigned tasks of an operational nature, related to the quality and operational realiability of means of transport and infrastructure. The graduates master advanced preparatory and expert subjects on a required theoretical level of university study. They are equipped with theoretical and practical knowledge of quality and operational reliability management in transport. Moreover, they are knowledgeable in the regulations related to the branch issues. On the job market the graduates can assert themselves in transport organizations in the public as well as the private sector. They can work in professional as well as managerial roles in operation, maintenance, design and development of cars or transport constructions.
Branch of Study: Operational Reliability of Transport Means and Infrastructure – specialization Environmental Protection in Transport
The aim of the course is education of qualified specialists who are able to independently and promptly solve assigned tasks of an operational nature related to environmental protection. The graduates master advanced preparatory and expert subjects on a required theoretical level of university study. They are equipped with theoretical as well as practical knowledge from the field of environmental creation and protection, knowledge from the field of environmental monitoring in relation to transport and from the field of environmental control and information systems. They can use the information and communication technology actively and work with electronic information sources. They are thoroughly familiarized with environmental legislation as well as with the character of parts of the environment and the operational materials used in transport. They also have practical laboratory experience. The graduates can find employment in transport organizations in the public and also the private sector. They can work as ecologists of a transport companies and administrators or auditors of the environmental system, in state administration institutions, at communal, municipal or regional offices in the departments of the environment, regional development or at land registry offices. In the private sector they can work with data analysis, in the field of tourism development, in the counselling services, further in diagnostic centres, laboratories and testing rooms.
Branch of Study: Applied Informatics in Transport
The branch of study Applied Informatics in Transport of the follow-up study programme Transport Engineering and Communications follows especially the branch of the same name of the Bachelor study programme Transport Technologies and Communications, but also other Bachelor study branches from the field of information technologies, respecting the Bologna convention. The students have the chance to gain deeper theoretical knowledge and practical abilities in the field of applied informatics with specialization in independent creative and design work and a prerequisite for specialization in the field of informatics in transport. The Master study programme of this branch is aimed especially towards the field of information technologies from the point of view of methods of rational information processing, algorithmization and use of modern programming languages, building and administration of databases and information systems, system analysis applications, administration and service of computer networks with respect to its interdisciplinary character. The graduates can use the theoretical knowledge from the field of information technologies, theory of control and decision making in systems, transport technology, transport economics, transport theory and other disciplines in practice. The graduates are able to control information technologies focused on data processing, use modern programming languages, project and realize construction and administration of databases and information systems, create system analysis applications. They master problems of designing and administration of computer networks. The aim of the branch of study is the education of qualified specialists able to maintain managerial positions in organizations, especially in the field of information technology use. The obtained knowledge enables independent work during the design, innovation and operation of control and information systems in transport.
Branch of Study: Transport Construction
The Master course of Transport Construction is focused on employment of graduates in positions which demand theoretical and expert knowledge enabling independent, creative, decision making, and conceptual activity with a focus on transport constructions. The graduates find employment in development, project and research organizations and management of state administration institutions. The graduates are ready to independently and promptly solve demanding tasks of an operational nature. They can solve complex technical calculations related to a plan and design of transport constructions. They are ready to solve tasks of a team nature conceptuallyand work in managerial positions, and are able to analyze the latest trends of the development in the transport construction. After meeting the requirements defined by the Act No. 360/1992, the graduates can take an eligibility exam to become authorized construction engineers.
The knowledge gained within the Master study programme creates the prerequisite for continuing in the Doctoral study programme of the same or related specialization.
