Graduates’ qualification level enables them to pursue fundamental research in physics of phenomena and processes that underlie optical systems for collection, transmission and processing of information.
Bachelor graduates can pursue a Master degree in Information and Communication Technologies and Systems.
Participation in real projects
Instruction at TUSUR University utilizes the principles of project-based group learning.
Students pursuing a degree in Optical Systems and Networks contribute to several fascinating R&D projects.
Development of information and communication systems for smart buildings. The project is focused on development of an information system for monitoring of indoor temperature. The system will be delivering energy accounting and internal energy audit. It can be used at industrial enterprises, housing facilities, healthcare and education institutions.
Development of ultra-wideband passive microwave devices. This project is developing devices that will be integrated in the measuring equipment produced by Micran, with the highest-level parameters and performance comparable to the best domestic and international products.
Study of CTP crystals and development of electrooptic light modulators. New electrooptic modulators are being created to deliver parameter control of laser emission. This project’s stakeholder is Crystal T, a resident of the Tomsk Special Economic Zone.
These and many more projects are used in the curriculum of the Optical Systems and Networks program, and any student may propose a new one that will be used in project-based group learning.
“Wireless Communications and the Internet of Things” is one of the most cutting-edge areas of technology that is currently enjoying rapid development. Few people nowadays can imagine functioning without a cell phone, mobile internet, smart devices operated from mobile gadgets.
The curriculum places a special focus on comprehensive study of wireless communication and data transmission networks (Wi-Fi, LTE, 5G NR, etc.), network technologies and protocols, digital methods and devices for transmission, reception and processing of information. Students acquire hands-on experience in design of new-generation wireless systems and in IoT systems, learning to engineer complete IoT systems and to program their individual elements (microcontrollers and sensors).
IoT is a stack of technologies that includes device engineering and a large number of protocols to support their interaction. IoT can be linked into a network via Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, LPWAN, BLE, Ethernet, RFID, ZigBee, etc., and students learn about most of these technologies as part of the curriculum.
The curriculum of Bachelor students with a major in Wireless Communications and the Internet of Things makes use of high-tech measuring benches and latest CAE systems, and places a great focus on software engineering, providing students with practical knowledge in the context of specific industries for application in wireless communication systems, IoT systems, and other areas of ICT.
After obtaining their Bachelor degree, students can continue their studies with one of the two Master degree programs offered by the Department: Information and Communication Systems of Wireless Broadband Access or Wireless Communication and the Internet of Things, an English-language program offered in cooperation with the Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology.
