Research & Development

„We know that first-hand experience is irreplaceable“
IT4Innovations (FIT)

IT4Innovations is a unique project building a national center of excellent research in the area of information technology including the acquisition of a very powerful supercomputer. IT4Innovations Centre of Excellence, the faculty’s Research Centre of Information Technology, is connected to the national Supercomputer Salomon - ranked 78th in the TOP500 List of the world’s top supercomputers (June 2017). The Brno center supervises two of the eight research programs focusing on

  • the recognition and presentation of the information from multimedia data, and
  • safe and reliable architectures, networks and protocols.
These are the leading research domains of the academic and research staff. Its recognized position in worldwide research enabled FIT to create e.g. Speech@FIT, one of the most famous speeches data mining research and development groups.

Brno & Czech Republic

Life in the heart of Europe

You will find it very difficult to get bored in Brno or at FIT. Student conferences, lectures by the world's leading experts, music festivals, as well as other events are happening throughout the whole year at the faculty. It is a vibrant and dynamic place close to the city centre of Brno - with over 80,000 students, it is a city with a young and inspiring spirit, as well as a great place to live, study and do research.

The Czech Republic is the 6th safest country in the planet, world newspapers such as New York Times put Brno into the list of top places to live and according to recent well-known rankings of best student cities of the world by QS, Brno is in top five! Brno has developed into a dynamic knowledge hub and innovation centre in Central Europe in recent years. It gives you a unique chance to cooperate with local world-class institutions, teams as well as companies and get a great experience.

Also, the location of the city is very strategic, especially if you are a keen traveller. You can reach four different capitals (Prague, Vienna, Bratislava, Budapest) within max. 3 hours by car as well as get to/from Brno easily by coach, train or plane. Or you can just explore the Czech Republic - mountains, forests, lakes, historical sites or vineyards are close enough.

Image and sound are the cornerstones of human-to-machine communication

You learn how to process data from cameras and microphones, get information from video and audio, rendering using advanced computer graphics, and use graphic cards to accelerate graphics or accelerate computational algorithms, design user interfaces, photo processing, or native language. In laboratories, you can experiment with powerful computers, graphic cards, camera systems, robot sensors, microphones, virtual and augmented reality, aeroplane simulators.
