The research program of the department is oriented towards several central fields, prominently including the application of numerical methods for the modeling of physical fields, investigation of special measuring methods, and experimentation in electrical engineering and electronics. Within the first of these provinces, the main partial procedures pursued by our researchers lie in solving coupled tasks and modeling nanostructures. The second region, comprising distinctive measurement approaches, encompasses tools for the acquisition and processing of time, image, and spectroscopic signals via the nuclear magnetic and nuclear quadrupole resonance techniques (NMR/NQR). In the last domain, or experimental and applied electrical engineering, we concentrate on detecting short, high-power electromagnetic pulses (up to 10 GW) and fast, one-shot or repeating processes (in the region of ns); the set of examined problems, however, also incorporates methods for measuring extremely low concentrations of air ions and non-standard sources of electrical energy, such as harvesters, resonant sources, and photovoltaic applications. All the research at the DTEEE is performed with respect to technical and technological usability. The individual projects are characterized under Research.
The more recent history of the department dates back to 1956, when Brno University of Technology adopted its current name to enliven the tradition of the city’s higher technical education, one that had begun in 1889. The Department of Electrical Sciences, established at the then Faculty of Energetics in the mid-1950s, was later reformed into the Department of Theoretical and Experimental Electrical Engineering, whose role at the newly founded Faculty of Electrical Engineering (1959) consisted in teaching relevant theory and measurement. Both the courses and the research were based on the measurement of magnetic quantities, diagnostics of ferromagnetic materials, and computation of electromagnetic fields.
