There are only two public institutes in the Czech Republic where the programmes focus on the applicability of knowledge rather than just theory. VŠTE is one of them. The latest example of this is a shared workplace between the Institute and the company JIKORD.¨
The primary focus of VŠTE activities is the implementation of full-time and part-time studies for professional bachelor’s and master’s degree programmes. The professional study programmes are supported by cooperation with regional entrepreneurs. VŠTE's other priorities include applied research, the implementation of innovative technologies and knowledge transfer into areas that are current and crucial with regards to the needs of the region.
VŠTE uses a comprehensive information system that allows students to create their own learning plans and manage their individual study credits. The rules that must be observed during a student’s studies are put into the system as algorithms which then help them to prepare their individual learning plans. This and other services provided through the IS MU means that, among other things, queues have disappeared (e.g. registrations for subsequent semesters are now carried out automatically by the system, etc.), as have paper registers (even student's record books have become redundant), and many activities related to learning and teaching have been simplified.
VŠTE now consists of six departments. These are Department of Mechanical Engineering, Department of Transport and Logistics, Department of Civil Engineering, Department of Economics and Management, Department of Natural Sciences, and Department of Foreign Languages.
VŠTE annually instigates many international students and employee mobility programmes. This section provides all the information you require on the Institute's foreign relations, including language principles, the preconditions for admission, and the list of foreign institutes with whom we cooperate closely.
Every year many students travel abroad as part of various international mobility programmes to improve their language skills and gain a lot of experience that helps them to find fulfilment in their future professional careers. This section provides comprehensive information.
Every year VŠTE also supports international employee mobility. Employees may choose from a wide offer of traineeships or other programmes. Employees, therefore, have the opportunity to improve their language skills and acquire very valuable practical experience.
