Class format

Traditionally, there are two types of classes at Czech universities: lectures (přednášky in Czech, abbreviated as p) and seminars (cvičení in Czech, abbreviated as c or cv).

The main purpose of the lectures is to provide students with important theoretical background in the respective discipline.

The seminars are usually more interactive, practically oriented, meant to discuss problems and apply the theoretical principles explained within the lectures to specific cases or use them to solve typical problems.

ISM Master Programme is accredited by the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports of the Czech Republic (MEYS) as a second-cycle higher education qualification.

The degree’s abbreviation Ing. is to be used before the name of the graduate (e.g. Ing. Jan NOVAK).

Graduates will be awarded an official diploma/degree certificate complemented by a diploma supplement corresponding to the model developed by the European Commission, Council of Europe and UNESCO.
