Introduction

The traditions related to electronics in Latvia are significant and deep-rooted. Major industrial electronic enterprises, such as VEF, Radiotehnika un Alfa used to work in Riga, requiring specialists to be prepared by the educational institutions of Latvia. Currently, there are a number of small and medium enterprises in Latvia involved with designing of microelectronic devices (Hanzas Elektronika, SAF Tehnika, Mikrotīkls and others). Information is available that the specialists in the field of electronics are in demand at the European labour market. Besides, research and educational institutions require specialists in electronics capable to conduct research and do pedagogical work.

Methods to design electronic devices differ from those made use of 10-20 years ago, when the projects were worked out manually, after that a mock-up was made and tested making use of measurement equipment such as testers, oscillographs etc.), which subsequently were verified to minimize errors. Presently, the range of electronic components available has changed; which means that the project developers have at their disposal instead of transistors, resistors etc. of an earlier time, the so-called microchip comprising millions of components. This allows designing complex schemes on a single microchip. Such work cannot be performed manually. The process of design must be computerised. Besides, measurements for error minimization cannot be performed in the microchip environment. Testing should be performed based on computer modelling and testing.

The goal of the programme is to prepare for Latvia, Europe and other countries of the world competitive IT specialists capable to work in a range of enterprises as well as to pursue education in master studies and doctor studies, to conduct research and perform pedagogical activities.

Objectives of the study programme:

  1. To offer the students the the opportunity to acquire knowledge in mathematics and computer science;

  2. To equip the students with theoretical knowledge and practical skills in software developments;

  3. To develop with the students awareness concerning computer-aided design/ enginering systems and computer-aided design;

  4. to equip the students with knowledge / comprehension/ awareness in computer systems development;

  5. To equip the students with theoretical knowledge and practical skills in modern microelectronics;

  6. Based on state of art developments, to train the students in microelectronic chip computer-aided design

Content-wise the study programme was designed to meet the above objectives. The field of computer-aided design is rapidly changing and transforming. For that reason the study programme is designed as an academic programme, not a professional one, in order to equip the students not only with the fundamental theoretical knowledge in the branch of science enabling they to actually function in the chosen field, but also lay the foundations for further expansion and amplification of the knowledge and skills.

In order to promote the competitiveness of our graduates abroad the study programme intends to use in the study process textbooks published in Europe and USA, and deliver several study courses in English. The Director of the study programme has had experience in teaching the respective courses and conducting research in foreign universities in the Netherlands, UK, and South Korea.

The students having successfully completed the study programme will become qualified specialists in computer science possessing the following characteristics:

Professional competence

- skills and abilities to program in various programming languages and operating systems;

- ability to design, making use of computer systems and programming languages;

- the ability to deal with design algorithms;

- skills and understanding in modern computer systems architecture;

- skills and abilities in application of modern designing methods;

Communicative competence

- ability to communicate effectively with colleagues and clients;

- basic skills of an effective public speaker

Language competence

- ability to use the acquired foreign language in professional situations;

- ability to use specialist literature in foreign languages;

- ability to create a presentation for foreign partners;

- ability to collaborate with foreign colleagues;

Learning competence

- ability to use reference books, data books, encyclopedias, and various dictionaries;

- ability to find and select the information needed in a professional situation;

- ability to develop professional skills and amplify knowledge making use of various information resources;

- skills and abilities to choose, select, and arrange the information necessary for work;

- skills and abilities to take part in various professional competitions, seminars and conferences
