Strong knowledge in Electronics will allow students to easily work in different industries such as the automotive, telecommunications, processing industry, etc, which normally require students to be able to:
• Prepare, manufacture, test and keep working electronic equipment and systems, which make use of new technologies;
• Develop studies and architectures and project small systems with different types of technology (digital, analogue and mixed), used in high-performance computational equipment and in modern telecommunications systems;
• Develop some low and high-level software required by this type of equipment;
• Be familiar with the technologies and manufacture processes more appropriate to the materials and components involved in the new systems;
• Interact with professionals from other areas aiming at the industrial production in the context of different industrial companies, which may require interdisciplinary teams;
• Draft technical documentation and share it with other work team members and customers, suppliers and the society, in one or several languages and ways of expression;
• Adapt themselves to the fast technological changes and the corresponding alterations of the type of activity throughout their professional life;
• Have strong basic principles, which allow them to pursue studies in other areas of engineering or deepen their knowledge in the area of electronics and its applications.
Typical employers are the automotive industry, telecommunications, electronics and microelectronics, industrial automation, energy, maintenance services and systems management, as well as the area of industrial management. The excellence of basic education opens useful perspectives for more in-depth training in the area of electronics or related areas, in Portugal or abroad.
