Description

Technical universities are thought of as a modern development in higher education. However, the Czech Technical University in Prague (CTU), one of the oldest techs in the world, opened in 1707.

The university was founded by Emperor Josef I. One of the most important subjects taught in its early days was fortification arts, as the Emperor wanted to improve Czech defences against invaders. Other topics relevant to civilian life were also covered, including surveying, mapping, drainage and constructing mechanisms for lifting heavy loads.

Today the university has dropped fortifications from its curriculum and instead has eight faculties: Civil Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Nuclear Science and Physical Engineering, Architecture, Transportation Sciences, Biomedical Engineering and Information Technology. Over 120 programmes of study are on offer, some with the option to study in English.

Each faculty sets its own admission requirements and some may require applicants to sit an examination.

The university has its own orchestra, the CTU Academic Orchestra, based in the Bethlehem Chapel. The orchestra’s creation was inspired by a visit from the Cambridge University Orchestra; several years later, CTU’s Orchestra was able to perform at Cambridge.

CTU’s home, Prague, is one of the most beautiful capitals in Europe, on par with Paris or Rome. Its Old Town is a maze of cobbled streets, contrasting with the modern eccentricity of its art galleries. The biggest ancient castle in the world rises above the city. Sightseers can enjoy watching the changing of the guards or, for a small fee, look inside at the magnificent old halls.

I have experience only with Faculty of Civil Engieneering. This faculty has lots of fields of study, for example Architecture and Buildings, Civil Engineering or Geodesy. My experience is, that every field of study is based on 2 years theoretical program (Maths, Physics, Geometry,….) and the rest of your study is more practical. Of course these practical subject have bigger use in practice. I think that anyone who is a bit technically based can graduate this school. Big plus for this faculty is that they organize a big party at school two times a year.

First of all, I would like to say that my opinion is biased because I don't have any other university in comparison. If you want to study technical university in the Czech Republic then I think there is no better way. CTU has many faculties so you can choose civil, mechanical or for example electrical engineering. And of course, every faculty has many bachelor’s and master’s degree opinions in Czech or English language. In my honest opinion study plan is much theoretical. Yes, in some subjects we have even practice, but I don’t think it is enough. So if you choose CTU to be ready for it. But the attitude of teachers and professors is really great and you can get much information.
