Creating and sharing knowledge for telecommunications

Iniciação à Eletrónica e Telecomunicações (IET)

on 25-06-2018

... Date: 25-29 June
Location: Instituto de Telecomunicações, DEM, Faculdade de Engenharia, Universidade da Beira Interior

This traineeship aims to adress the basic concepts of electronics and mobile and wireless telecommunications, and corresponds to 25 hours (3 in the morning and 2 in the afternoon).
It will allow trainees to get acquainted with some of the innovative applications of electronics and communication networks, by immersing them in the research and development context of IT and conducting experiments. It will include theoretical sessions, lab work with assembly of electronics kits, basic techniques for producing printed circuit boards, experimental realization of received power measurements, binary output and other relevant measures in 4G and 5G mobile systems. They will have contact with the assembly of simple point-to-point / pointmultipoint connections and experimental performance verification, as well as with the main research and tech-nological challenges for the development of mobile and wireless communications in the 21st century (
(for example, small terrestrial cells and based on aerial drones, spectrum sharing, spatial processing and MIMO).

Ciência Viva no Laboratório - Ocupação Científica de Jovens nas Férias

on 27-06-2016

... Following the great success of previous editions, IT will be promoting again this year between June 27th and July 1st, two traineeships designed to capture the interest of secondary students from the 10th to the 12th grade for telecommunications. The activities will be developed in Lisbon and in Covilhã, under the program Ciência Viva no Laboratório - Ocupação Científica de Jovens nas Férias.

In Lisbon, IT is associated with Instituto Superior Técnico to host INTELE (Introduction to Telecommunications) for the 5th time . During a complete week (30 hours), the students will go through the delights of soldering for the first time electronic components and building their own FM and AM receivers.

In Covilhã, IT together with the Faculdade de Engenharia – Universidade da Beira Interior, will be hosting a similar course named Initiation to Electronics and Telecommunications. It also spans a week (25 hours) and students will be immersed in the context of research and development of IT and participating in experiences, allowing them to contact with some of the innovative applications from electronics and communication networks.

In both courses, the students will visit laboratories of different areas of telecommunications and will watch compelling experimental sessions. The initiative in Covihã also includes sports and cultural activities. More Information..
