Photonics education within the framework of electrical engineering program of studies
Author(s): Cestmir Vlcek; Jan Maschke

Paper Abstract

Except of specialists, dealing with different photonics areas, the education of all technical professionals about basic photonics principles, components, applications and system solutions is necessary. Paper deals with the place of photonics in the basic range of education and also in other facultative subjects developing the basic photonics knowledge to the area of systems solution. Photonics education is carried in the three steps: in electrical engineering subjects, in the facultative subjects and in the professional subjects. Basic professional spheres of electrical engineering student education could be as follows: theory of field, theory of signals, theory of information, electronic signals and systems, and electronic measurements. In Electrical Engineering and Electronics Department we offer two facultative subjects for different professions: Opto-electronics, and Fiber Optics. Both subjects are based on the lectures and also on the laboratory practice.
