Electrical Engineering Specialising in Communication Engineering

After the revolution of Computer Science a revolution in communication started and has been going on recently. With the latest development in technology, the quality of almost all entertainment electronics and professional broadcasting has been improved by use of the digital devices of data processing. Building up an info-communication society requires a new approach from the academics who work and teach in this field. In these surroundings of revolutionary changes the Institute of Communication Engineering endeavours to make the students to be prepared for a better understanding of and a closer insight into the new communication culture.
The use of digital signals at all levels allowed the whole of communication technology to get into a closer and direct contact with computer science, and it may appear as a method of the later\'s application. In consideration of the above finding, the specialist modules taught by the institute have been formed and filled with content. The modules are as follows:

  • Digital Transmission
  • Digital Switching
  • Communication Informatics
  • Microwave Technics
  • Acoustic Technology
  • Radio and TV Technics
  • Studio Technics

A highly industrialised society can only be created with an up-to-date infrastructure. Its development - being this field, being now (and also in the near future) of vital importance - has acquired prominent support. For completing the work many experts are needed, consequently, fewer problems with (un)employment are seen in this area. A series of new techniques and technologies emerged provide a sphere of activity for people who are fairly familiar with this speciality. Both mass-communication technology and professional broadcast communication are in a state of dynamic development.

Courses of Electrical Engineering, Engineering Management, Safety Techniques, Integrated Engineering

The Institute of Communication Engineering is responsible for teaching all students attending Józsefváros site Electrical Science, which is one of the core subjects and in which the students take a final examination at the end of their first year.

The institute is also responsible for teaching specialist subjects related to communication engineering.

Co-operative Training

This is the third year that the Institute has started a course of co-operative training. In the first year 24, in the second year 54 students attended, and in this academic year 76 students have been attending the course. As the dynamically growing number of students attending the course indicates, there is a wide interest in co-operative training. The number of firms supporting this kind of training is also increasing at present, there are 31 firms taking part in co-operative training.

All parties participating in co-operative training find it useful. The students have an opportunity to enlarge their knowledge and take practical training in their special field at the same time; in addition they will take a degree similar to that of a graduate in Western Europe. During the 10 months of co-operative training the students are given 150 hours of lectures suited to their special field once a week, and on the other four week days they take practical training at the company. During the practical training the students carry out engineering work the efficiency of which has fully satisfied the companies providing the training.
We will give a list of our partner companies who support the course and provide placement for our students, although the list is far from being complete. There are various types of company, from multinationals, through medium size and small companies to Ltd with only few employees: MATÁV, WESTEL, Nokia, Siemens, Motorola, Sysdata, Pantel, Radiant, Synergon, Mûszertechnika, SCI-Modem, SCI Network, Teletechnika, Primatone, etc.

Human resources policy is also involved in most companies\' option for co-operative students since co-operation between the student and the company may start earlier, in the student\'s third year, by specifying subjects for thesis and consulting on the work with the aim of a full-time employment in the end.

Deepening industrial relations make it possible to acquire valuable experience and knowledge, which in turn contribute to the further improvement of education.

Distance Learning

Even before its introduction the department managers of ICE acted as efficient members of a team that aimed at planning and introducing distance learning into the curricula of the college. As a result, since the 2000/2001 academic year (this year being the second one) we have had distance learning students opting for this popular and modern form of studies. While preserving the values of full-time education, we have made efforts to provide our students with profound fundamental knowledge that can be any time further developed and with speciality subjects that can be immediately utilised.

To obtain the above mentioned objectives, we have prepared teaching aids, among them a series of video casettes, - in co-operation with the Székesfehérvár Institute of Computer Engineering - which is to assist the learning of Electrical Science. Currently we are preparing a similar series to assist the learning of specially subjects.

The introduction of distance learning demands serious efforts from our teachers, who willingly take this challenge.

Specialist Engineering Courses

For several years Specialist Engineering Courses have been going on in the fields of PCM Communication and Satellite Communication. Earlier this year we revised and further improved our continuing education scheme. A document on launching a specialist further education programme of Communication Engineering was submitted for accreditation to the Ministry of Education. The Hungarian Accreditation Committee unanimously has agreed with the proposed programme, which means that a specialist engineering course with a new curriculum can be expected to start in February 2002.

The specialist course with its new curriculum, which is structured in modular system and includes a topical subject programme, provides new options of study for graduates in electrical engineering, first of all for graduates specialised in communication engineering. In addition, graduates specialised in informatics can also benefit from the course if they opt for a retraining programme.

The specialist modules are:

  • Mobile Communication
  • Satellite Communication
  • Optical Network and Technologies
  • IP Based Communication
  • Digital Media

All enquiries about the Specialist Course are welcomed and application forms - if requested - will be sent by return mail.

Post-secondary Training

The Higher Education Act enabled the introduction of Electrical Engineer-Assistant Courses. The training started two years ago and, out of 104 students who successfully passed the closing examination 61 students opted for specialising in Communication Engineering provided by ICE. The training includes both full-time and correspondence courses. Approximately 50 percent of the students enrolled on a self-financing basis.

In the frame of post-secondary training the Institute of Communication Engineering has elaborated and has had the Studio Techniques Module accredited; a module which has been in progress for some years. Courses have been offered and successfully completed in the areas of sound techniques and studio techniques, with radio and TV professionals\' contribution.
