Information and communication technologies
Telecommunications and IT networks surround us in everyday life and are constantly evolving. Without specialists in telecommunications and networks, the world would not be able to function today. In the digital world, not only people communicate with each other, but also people with machines, but also machines with machines. Why is that so? The digital world is indispensable for today's world, and many things can be accelerated through communication. In a globalized world, people collaborate remotely through video conferencing, send each other data around the world, but also control industrial enterprises remotely via a computer, tablet or other communication device. This comfort is provided by the ever-evolving field of information and communication technologies.
Cyber security moves the world. We are interested in who has access to our data, who can eavesdrop, analyze, change and misuse it. We are increasingly hearing from the media about cyber attacks on industrial enterprises, hospitals and state institutions. Attacks on critical infrastructures, such as power plants or military installations, are no exception. Organizations are making increasing efforts and spend resources to secure their networks. States are setting up specialized workplaces to fight cybercrime, and international exercises are being organized to train cyber-attack experts. Nevertheless, this field is still in its infancy and its development is still in its beginning.
Sound and sound technology surround us most of our lives - you listen to music on your mobile phones, computers or hi-fi system, use voice assistants, go to the cinema, to concerts and other events. Music production requires microphones, mixing consoles, effects processors, synthesizers, audio software and recording technology, and for its mediation amplifiers, headphones, speaker systems, compression algorithms and more. Music production and consumption is an area of audio engineering that comes to mind of most people first, but it is not the only one. It also includes technology and algorithms for voice communication between humans and between man and machine, sound for virtual reality, room acoustics, noise monitoring and analysis, and more.
