Founded in 1707 as the Institute of Engineering Education, the Czech Technical University (CTU) in Prague is one of the oldest Central European technological institutes. Originally established as a secondary education institution, it was later transformed in 1806 into the Prague Polytechnical Institute. The move was seen as necessary when university studies were introduced in the institution. In 1920, the name was finally changed to its current one.
Today, research efforts and teaching duties are administered by the university’s eight faculties. They are the (1) Faculty of Civil Engineering, (2) Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, (3) Faculty of Electrical Engineering, (4) Faculty of Nuclear Sciences and Physical Engineering, (5) Faculty of Architecture, (6) Faculty of Transportation Sciences, (7) Faculty of Biomedical Engineering, and the (8) Faculty of Information Technology.
CTU offers more than 210 accredited programs, of which 84 are in foreign languages. This is because the university wants to provide scientists, managers, and specialists with foreign language skills needed for a dynamic global market. Aligned with this, CTU has an active study and work abroad program. It takes advantage of its connection with 484 universities abroad with active bilateral agreements with those from the United States, Japan, Canada, and Singapore, among others.
Currently, the CTU hosts six university institutes. These are the Masaryk Institute of Advanced Studies, University Center for Energy Efficient Buildings, Institute of Experimental and Applied Physics, Czech Institute of Informatics, Robotics, and Cybernetics, the Klokner Institute, and the Institute of Physical Education and Sport. These institutes and centers conduct specialized advanced research in their particular fields and study areas.
The university also strives to foster the already lively research culture through CTU awards. One is called the Rector’s Prize, given to those who accomplished outstanding scientific results, remarkable thesis, practical application of research, and publishing work in prestigious scientific publications. Other prizes include the CTU Medal and the Felber Medal, among other honors and incentives.
With its technical engineering background, CTU maintains a good research innovation-to-market program. It encourages and helps students, employees, doctoral candidates, and startup entrepreneurs to establish a functional business with great potential for success. This effort is led by its InQbay unit. InQbay participants get access to expert workshops, startup counseling, networking events, mentor consultations, and soft skills development.
CTU has a rich heritage when it comes to producing well-rounded skilled graduates contributing to their fields of specializations today. Notable alumni include Vladimir Prelog, the Nobel Laureate chemist, the physicist and mathematician Christian Doppler, and Josef Gerstner, a physicist and engineer.
