The Department provides teaching in the following basic areas: theoretical electrical engineering (basics of electrical engineering, electrical circuits, electromagnetic field theory), computer technology (algorithms, basics of programming, object-oriented programming, visual programming, CAD programs), electrochemistry, and computer modeling (analysis of individual physical fields and their association, simulation and optimization of electrical systems) in all stages of the study. The Department also participates in guaranteeing the study program Materials and Technologies for Electrical Engineering and guarantees some particular subjects in individual fields of study at the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, the Faculty of Applied Sciences, and the Ladislav Sutnar Faculty of Design and Art. In cooperation with OTH Regensburg, the Department provides a course on using MATLAB and computer simulations for the analysis of electrical circuits at the local university twice a year.
In the field of science and research, the staff of the Department actively participates in solving basic and applied research projects in the field of electromagnetism, electromechanical systems, electric heat, and advanced modeling of physical fields. The Department employees participate in many international conferences and symposia and publish in leading impacted and peer-reviewed international professional journals.
The Department regularly organizes international scientific conferences and congresses. One of the original and longest-running conferences is the Advanced Methods of the Theory of Electrical Engineering (AMTEE) conference, which has been held regularly every two years since 1993. Later, the Department joined larger international conferences, such as the European Seminar on Computing (ESCO). - regularly every two years since 2008 and Computational Problems of Electrical Engineering (CPEE) annually - together with partners in Poland, Slovakia, and Ukraine. The staff also organizes events that are part of a symposia series, such as the International Symposium on Theoretical Electrical Engineering (ISTET) 2013, the Symposium Electromagnetic Phenomena in Nonlinear Circuits (EPNC) 2014, and the International UIE Congress on Evolution and New Trends in Electrothermal Processes 2021.
