The program "Space Applications" offers a master-degree study of the design and development of space applications. The study is conceived as an interdisciplinary association of electrical and mechanical engineering. Together with technical knowledge, students become familiar with fundamentals of project management and team work. A practical education in international companies and organizations, which are active in research and exploitation of space, in an important part of the education. The graduates gain a professional basis for an individual and team research, development and management. The study is aimed to a complex preparation of engineers for international companies and organizations. Moreover, a high-quality basis for consecutive doctoral studies at an arbitrary university is another objective. Therefore, the education is fully provided in English.
The graduate of the study program "Space Applications" will acquire basic knowledge in the theoretical and engineering disciplines of space technology. They shall be theoretically and practically equipped for design activities in the field of satellites and space applications. One is acquainted with current concepts and methods used in the design and implementation of space applications and can use them actively and independently. The study program includes project and language preparation, which will enable graduates to participate in international space projects. The interdisciplinary interconnection of electrical and mechanical engineering, which is necessary for the development of space applications, makes the graduate unique. An integral part of education is practical education in cooperation with partner companies.
The graduate is able to design the basic components of space applications and is able to connect these components by system design. They can use the necessary development tools when designing and implementing space applications. The graduate has expertise for all phases of design, integration, verification, testing and operation of space applications.
The graduate combines knowledge in the field of electrical systems (electronic communication, radio and optical systems, electromagnetic compatibility, radiation resistance) and in the field of mechanical systems (space mechanics, space flight mechanics, space technology, aircraft technology and its reliability). The graduate is familiar with the design and technology of space applications. During the study, the graduate will get acquainted with the principles of building small satellites. The graduate has experience with practice in companies focused on the development and production of space applications.
The graduate is able to independently solve engineering tasks related to the development, production and operation of space applications. He or She is able to propose, discuss and take decisions necessary to perform the assigned task in a specified time. It is the ability to present one's own professional opinions in English. The graduate is able to search for, expand and update their expertise and apply it to the assigned problems. He or She is able to lead a development team.
The graduate's knowledge is verified by exams in the subjects of the profiling basis and by the final examination at the state exam. The graduate demonstrates practical skills and general competences during the study in compulsory laboratory exercises, individual and team projects. The ability to produce quality engineering works and the ability to present the achieved results is demonstrated by the graduate mainly by independent elaboration and defense of the diploma thesis. The graduate is prepared to find employment in technical practice, in creative work, research and development, in production, in management and managerial positions in technical or commercial companies or organizations whose activities are related to space applications.
