Information and Communication Engineering runs the modern world: it provides infrastructure for connecting people. It covers products that acquire, interpret, send, or receive information in a digital form.
IC systems include hardware and software components for processing, transfer, and analysis of various types of information: signals, speech, texts and numeric data, images, videos, multidimensional data. Smart IC systems can hear, see, feel, interpret the acquired data and learn from it. Modern IC systems connect not only the people but also computers, intelligent devices and things, as well as ubiquitous data sources. On daily basis, they change the way how people work, communicate, learn and live.
Students gain knowledge in the theory and application of communications, information and signal processing, data security, computer networks, systems that learn, gather and interpret data. ICE has applications in fixed and mobile communication systems, intelligent man-machine interaction, multimedia storage and retrieval, medical and security systems, biometrics and bioinformatics. The program provides a broad range of ICE design skills, including products and systems that understand input data and adapt its behaviour to it.
ICE opens career paths across innovative ICT industries, financial and service sectors that deal with advanced information processing. Suitable positions include development of algorithms, design of smart devices, system integration and consulting. The design of intelligent systems that gather knowledge, learn and adapt is know-how that offers a competitive advantage to an IC engineer. ICT is among the fastest-growing industries in the world.
When planning a future career, it is equally important to perceive the current state of some professions, as well as their perspectives. Profile ICE offers a strong theoretical background that gives diploma degree engineers self-confidence and certainty that they will be able to cope with the biggest challenges of modern technologies. A wide breadth of gained knowledge, ranging from computing to communications, software and hardware systems, from theory to practical implementations is a guarantee of a great job and high employability. It is an important prerequisite for personal entrepreneurship, too. Intelligent data acquisition, systems that analyze data and learn, systems that replace people and provide humans with a completely new paradigm of work, education and entertainment are fundamental elements of a new service-based economy.
Profile ICE, with its spectrum of courses, and by nurturing an individual mentor-based approach, is an excellent choice for education and future career.
