Department of Technologies in Electronics

The Department of Technologies in Electronics (Katedra technol√≥gi√≠ v elektronike - KTE) is responsible for education of electrical engineers in the branch "Material Engineering" and also provides full education for Ph.D. students in the branch “Electrotechnology and Materials” for scientific division No. 26-35-9. Within the transition to new three step educational system is the department responsible for MSc. level degree course in Electronics (study program “Production Technologies in Electronics”) as well as for degree courses in “Electrotechnology and Materials” at PhD. level. The research and scientific works are focused on:

  • Standard and polymer thick film technology,
  • Surface mounting technology,
  • Complete technology for multichip modules,
  • Thick film sensors technologies.

The proposed Annual Report gives an overview of the most important activities at Department of Technologies in Electronics focused on the year 2007. It describes a basic structure of the Department, its position within frame of the Faculty and University, their scientific and research activities and co-operation with other universities In Slovak Republic and abroad, too. This brochure also proposes information about the graduate courses during the year 2007 and gives a reference list about published scientific papers, scientific conferences and workshops contributions. Moreover it offers basic department staff profiles and also provides general information regarding other activities of the department staff during the year 2007.

  • The Department was founded in 1991 and the original appellation was Department of Hybrid Microelectronics. The current designation - changed during the 2003 year - has more extensive range and it better expresses topic assignments to serve the needs for education and research in such field as:
  • Material science,
  • Manufacturing technologies,
  • Design suitable technologies for the fabrication of electronic circuit and microsystems based on thick film technologies,
  • Development and realization of multilayer structures with accent on sensor thick film technology,
  • Management and control of quality and reliability of electronic systems,
  • CAD of microelectronic systems.

Till 2007 the Department has educated 177 engineers in the branch “Radioelectronics” and "Material Engineering". The second branch "Material Engineering” is more recent opened branch managed by KTE.
The academic staff of the Department included four professors, three assistant professors and three researchers. The full-time non-academic staff included secretary in the year 2007. Two full-time and one external Ph.D. students studied and worked at Department in the year 2007.
Having completed the curriculum of the Department, the graduate engineers are prepared to be able:

  • to design suitable technologies for the fabrication of electronic circuits and microsystems with respect to the advanced material properties and advance production technologies used for the manufacturing of electronic modules,
  • to develop and realize the thick film based hybrid integrated multilayer structures (Hybrid Integrated Circuits - HIC),
  • to develop, design and realize Multi Chip Modules - MCM,
  • to design and use the Surface Mounting Technology – SMT including reflow soldering,
  • to develop and design the advanced Printed Circuit Boards layout - PCB,
  • to develop and realize hybrid sensors in several practical areas,
  • to work with standard and also with Low Temperature Cofired Ceramics - LTCC,
  • to design and construct electronic microsystems with regard to the advanced microelectronics components base,
  • to solve problems regarding the quality and reliability control in production generally and in microelectronic production.

A successful completion of the curriculum (5 years study) leads to awarding the academic degree "Ing." in electrical engineering, which is equivalent to MSc. The Department also provides Ph.D. courses (3 years study).
