Paper Abstract

For thirty years, the Institute of Electronics and Telecommunication has been teaching students in the field of telecommunications. In the academic year 1990/91, a course in optical communications was introduced. Currently, within electronics and telecommunication programs, we offer an undergraduate course entitled: Optotelecommunications, two courses for master level specialities: Optical Networks and Advanced Fiber Optic Systems, and finally, a course for extramural students. We also provide lab projects for Computer Science and Electrotechnics students and contribute to continuos education training. Over the last ten years, a number of students participating in our laboratories has increased seven times. At present, we have two laboratories, offering 40 projects, which fall into 5 categories: basics projects, fundamental projects, applied projects, advanced projects, optical systems. Such a variety of topics allows to offer a flexible choice to suit individual student interests.
