Brno University of Technology
Brno, Czech Republic


University description (as per official university website)

On 19 September 1899 the Austrian Emperor and Hungarian King Franz Joseph 1 signed a decree bringing into existence a Czech technical university in Brno.This was the first Czech higher education institution in Moravia.

It became an important centre of teaching and research, greatly enriching the life of Czech society, a role that it has continued to play down to the present.When it opened, the university had with four professors and forty-seven students. In the course of more than 110 years is has matured into an internationally recognized institution offering a cutting-edge education based on the latest scientific and professional knowledge delivered at eight faculties and Institute of Forensic Engineering covering a broad spectrum of fields ranging from technical and scientific disciplines through economics to the arts.

World University Ranking

In one of the most prestigious international rankings, published annually by The Times, the Brno University of Technology regularly appears among the 400 to 600 best universities world-wide. In 2009 The Times Higher Education Supplement included BUT among the 500 best universities in the world (in the area of engineering and IT, BUT came 245th).

Prestigious ECTS and DS Labels

For the period 2009 Ė 2013 the Brno University of Technology has been awarded the European Commissionís prestigious ECTS and DS Label certificates, issued in recognition of quality higher education.

BUT was one of only two Czech universities to be granted the ECTS Label. This label recognizes the proper introduction of the European credit system in all Bachelorís and Masterís degree programmes in line with the implementation of the aims of the Bologna Process. BUT was awarded the DS Label in recognition of the proper provision of the Diploma Supplement to all its graduates free of charge. Both certificates are proof that BUT meets the demanding criteria of the European Union in the area of higher education; in addition, they make a major contribution towards broadening mobility and increasing the internationalization of the university.

At the present time more than 23,000 students are enrolled at BUT at the following faculties and university institute:

Faculty of Architecture - FA
Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Communication - FEEC
Faculty of Chemistry - FC

Studies at BUT

VUT offers structured tertiary-level education in the following types of studies: Bachelorís programmes (3-4 years, ending with the titles Bc. or BcA), Masterís programmes (1.5-2 years, ending with the titles Ing., Ing. arch. or MgA) and doctoral programmes (3-4 years, ending with the title PhD).

The traditional fields of study are civil, mechanical and electrotechnical engineering, architecture, business and management, the fine arts and information technology.

The entrance procedures in most cases include a written test focused on the applicantís interest in the particular field of study and his or her knowledge in the relevant technical or artistic discipline. Part of the entrance examination at the Faculties of Fine Arts and Architecture and in some fields of study at the Faculty of Civil Engineering and the Faculty of Business and Management is a talent-focused examination. Some faculties admit students with outstanding secondary school results or students who have been successful in student Olympiads and other selected secondary school competitions without entrance examinations.
