Czech Technical University in Prague

Czech Technical University in Prague (CTU) belongs to the biggest and the oldest technical universities in Europe. It was founded on Christian Josef Willenberg's initiative based on the decree issued by Emperor Josef I. on January 18th, 1707. It is the oldest non-military technical university in Europe. a long tradition of excellent research activities and engineering and exceptional technical education result from many historically significant persons such as well-known physicist Ch. Doppler, many remarkable chemists, e.g. Nobel Prize winner V. Prelog or great engineers and inventors, e.g. F. J. Gerstner or J. Božek. Nowadays, CTU consists of eight faculties (Faculty of Civil Engineering, Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Faculty of Nuclear Sciences and Physical Engineering, Faculty of Architecture, Faculty of Transportation Sciences, Faculty of Biomedical Engineering, Faculty of Information Technology) and approximately eighteen thousand students attend this university.

Faculty of Nuclear Sciences and Physical Engineering CTU in Prague

Faculty of Nuclear Sciences and Physical Engineering (FNSPE) was founded in 1955 as the fourth faculty of CTU in Prague. This faculty was initially established as a part of a Czechoslovak nuclear program in 1955. Later, it gradually expanded its scope to a wide range of branches of study with a focus on mathematics, physics and chemistry. It provides high-quality education with deep mathematical and physical background and an individual approach to students. During the development of pedagogical, scientific and professional orientation, four essential branches of study were established at the faculty: mathematical engineering, which also includes software engineering; nuclear engineering, focusing in particular on the physics and technology of nuclear reactors and dosimetry; physical engineering including the fields of physical electronics, solid-state engineering and materials studies; and nuclear chemical engineering.

Faculty of Information Technology CTU in Prague

Faculty of Information Technology (FIT) was founded in 2009 as the eighth faculty of CTU in Prague. Even though it is the newest faculty of CTU, it is based on a long tradition of education and research in the field of information technologies of the most important Czech technical university. Thus, it provides bachelor, master and also doctoral study programs in this field. the study programs of the faculty are based on more than 40-year experience in education and research in all primary areas of information technologies at the previous workplace (KP FEE). a significant advantage is that the study programs at the faculty do not focus only on software engineering but also on technologies and architectures of computer systems. Thanks to balanced knowledge and skills of both hardware and software engineering, graduates have a perfect competitive position in the labour market.

Department of Nuclear Reactors FNSPE CTU in Prague

Department of Nuclear Reactors provides education in bachelor, master and doctoral study programs Nuclear Engineering, bachelor and master program Decommissioning of Nuclear Facilities and doctoral program Safety and Security of Nuclear Installations and Forensics Analyses of Nuclear Materials.

Specialised laboratories are used during the education process, including a nuclear reactor and modern computational technologies and procedures used in nuclear engineering. Bachelor's program Nuclear Engineering is based on extensive knowledge of mathematics and physics. Introductory courses are supplemented by courses focused on nuclear and radiation physics, neutron physics, dosimetry, nuclear reactors, the technology of nuclear power plants and the safety of nuclear installations. Master continuation program Nuclear Engineering is focused on obtaining knowledge and skills related to graduates' future professional orientation. Education is based on advanced physics courses, and nuclear engineering focused on applications and metrology of ionising radiation, the safety of nuclear installations, nuclear reactor physics, devices used in nuclear technology and nuclear technologies. Modern computational methods, specialised laboratory courses and individual student projects designed to work on an individually assigned topic are included. Short-term internships in various companies or industrial plants also play a crucial role in the education process at the department. Graduates can perform different professions in various fields of industry, research and development organisations, universities or public administration and apply in a wide range of industry-related areas related to nuclear energy and the use of ionising radiation and radionuclides. Thanks to a comprehensive theoretical and experimental nuclear education, they can work in professional and management positions in nuclear power plants, in operational or development centres of industrial enterprises, scientific/research institutions, public control and supervisory organisations. the scientific activities of the department are focused on problems of theoretical and experimental reactor physics, neutron applications, fuel cycle, thermohydraulics, thermomechanics of nuclear fuel, modelling of operating conditions of nuclear power plants, operation of research reactors, safe and reliable operation of nuclear facilities and computations of spent nuclear fuel parameters. the department cooperates with many foreign institutions such as the UK Defense Academy, University of Manchester, University of Tennessee, STU Bratislava, TU Vienna, TU Budapest, TU Aachen, Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey, International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), etc.
