Department of Technical Studies

The Department of Technical Studies provides education of courses related to electrical engineering and computer science, particularly in the degree programmes Computer Systems, Applied Computer Science and Engineering for Industry. In addition, it offers several courses for students of the other study programmes of the College of Polytechnics Jihlava.

The Computer Systems specialization is intended for those students who are interested in application of computers in technical and industrial processes. The Applied Computer Science specialization is intended for those students who prefer information technologies, computer science, or economics. The graduates of both fields have excellent job opportunities, it is also possible to continue in a subsequent Master study programme of similar orientation. More detailed descriptions of both specializations can be found here.

The department uses six specialized labs, which serve, besides educational purposes, as a background for realization of bachelor theses, students´ projects and scientific research. To mention at least two of them, the lab of signal processing and multimedia and the lab of computer control systems are probably the most attractive. The former is designed in a way to match the requirements put on a high-quality recording studio, however, its use is not limited to acoustic applications only. The lab along with its abundant equipment and devices can be used for wider multimedia purposes and also for precise measurements of almost any kind The lab of computer control systems benefits especially from working models of dynamic systems which can be controlled via several types of control systems. The models include a model railway, synchronized toothwheels, or a ball on a moving rod In cooperation with Czech Technical University in Prague, our department has implemented a web-based application for remote control of the models, which allows the students to work on their projects anytime, even from their homes.

The department collaborates with both local and remote institutions and companies, e.g. Fachhochschule Technikum Wien, Czech Technical University in Prague, Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic, Bosch Diesel, Valeo Compressor Europe, Automotive Lighting, or KEBA, to mention at least some of them. The academic staff members participate at many research activities, including the design and implementation of an electronic lung model or research on information coding and processing in nervous system. As a consequence, our students are offered many interesting possibilities: a study stay or practical training abroad, participation in interesting research activities or realization of their own multimedia project.
