​​Academic Senate

The Faculty Academic Senate is a self-governing representative body. Its members are elected from among the academic community members (Faculty academic staff and students of all implemented study programmes). The Senate of the Faculty of Civil Engineering has 30 members, who are elected by direct and secret vote. The Senate has two chambers; the Academic Staff Chamber at the Faculty of Civil Engineering has 18 members, and the Student Chamber 12 members, the Academic Senate’s term of office is three years. 

The Senate, e.g., decides on the proposal for the Dean’s appointment, approves the conditions for admission to study, decides on the establishment, fusion, merger, division or dissolution of the Faculty departments on the Dean’s proposal, approves drafts of internal Faculty regulations, the allocation of funds and controls their use.

Scientific Council

The Scientific Council is a self-governing body of the Faculty. It is mostly involved in scientific, research and other creative activities at the Faculty. Its Chair is the Dean, who convenes its sessions. The Scientific Board’s term of office is four years, the members are appointed by the Dean with the consent of the Academic Senate. At least one third of the members must be from outside the CTU academic community; they are distinguished representatives of the fields of specialization in which the Faculty is engaged. 

Within its activity, the Council discusses the Faculty strategic plan, approves proposals for study programmes at the Faculty, presents plans for applications for accreditations, extension or prolongation of accreditations of study programmes and branches of habilitation and professorship appointment proceedings to the Rector, and participates in habilitation and professor appointment proceedings.

Disciplinary Commission

The Disciplinary Commission is a Faculty body. Its task is to discuss disciplinary offenses of the Faculty students, such as plagiarism or cheating during exams. The Commission submits its draft decisions to the Faculty Dean.

The Commission is composed of the Faculty employees and students, its members’ term of office is two years. The Commission’s proceedings and decisions are not public. 

The Commission’s activity is regulated by the Disciplinary Code for Students of CTU: Internal CTU Regulations – Public web – Czech Technical University in Prague (cvut.cz)

Information about the composition of the FCE Disciplinary Commission is available here: Disciplinary Commission — FCE CTU (cvut.cz)
