Masaryk University, located in Brno, is the second-largest public university in the Czech Republic and the leading higher education institution in Moravia. It is recognized as one of the most important teaching and research institutions in the Czech Republic and a highly-regarded Central European university. Masaryk University is currently educating over 35 000 students, 20 % of them international. The Faculty of Informatics was established in 1994 as the very first specialized faculty of its kind in the Czech Republic. The field of study Embedded Systems is a comprehensive study program of programmable structures which overlapps with parallel and distributed systems, computer networks, and cryptography. The program covers basic theories, research methodology, analysis, and comparative studies of the relevant computing devices. An emphasis is placed on balancing theoretical and practical subjects that apply to the design, implementation, analysis, testing and operation of embedded systems based on FPGA, one chip microcomputers and DSP. Working on projects in small teams is an integral part of these studies. Projects are oriented towards experimental and prototype solutions and to practical issues that emerge from the research and development activities of the faculty. It is possible to cooperate with potential employers to learn about the design of specific embedded systems and their developmental tools.
