If more applicants are placed in the last place pursuant to par. 8, all these applicants will be admitted.

     

  2. Entrance examination:
    1. For study programmes of Civil Engineering/Stavební inženýrství, Integral Safety of Constructions, Geodesy and Cartography, Buildings and Environment, Intelligent Buildings and Civil Engineering, the entrance examination consists of a written test in branch-oriented thematic areas. General requirements for the examination are specified in the Dean´s Directive.
      For applicants who completed their study in a related Bachelor degree branch of study at FCE pursuant to par. 7 in the 2019/2020 or 2018/2019 academic year, the results of their oral examinations in thematic areas of the state graduation examination will be recognised as the results of the entrance examination. The number of points for the entrance examination will be specified as the average of the point evaluation of the examinations in thematic areas pursuant to par. 5.
    2. For the study programme of Architecture and Building Engineering, the entrance examination consists of two parts:
      • oral part – an interview about architecture and architectural design of buildings, including the submission of a portfolio of architectural works;
      • written part – a test in technical design of buildings.

      General requirements for the examination are specified in the Dean´s Directive.
      For applicants who completed their study by the defence of a Bachelor thesis registered at the Department of Architecture FCE in the 2019/2020 or 2018/2019 academic year, the overall results of the state graduation examination will be recognised as the results of the entrance examination. The number of points for the entrance examination will be specified as the point evaluation of the resulting mark for the state graduation examination pursuant to par. 5.

     

  3. Minimum numbers of points for the entrance examination necessary for admission to study:

    Study programmes of Civil Engineering/Stavební inženýrství, Integral Safety of Constructions, Geodesy and Cartography, Buildings and Environment, Intelligent Buildings and Civil Engineering:
    40 points for the entrance examination (the maximum possible number of points: 100)
    Study programme of Architecture and Building Engineering:
    20 points for the oral part of the examination (the maximum possible number of points: 50)
    20 points for the written part of the examination (the maximum possible number of points: 50).

     

  4. Total numbers of points in the admission procedure:
    1. For study programmes of Civil Engineering/Stavební inženýrství, Integral Safety of Constructions, Geodesy and Cartography, Buildings and Environment, Intelligent Buildings and Civil Engineering, the total number of points in the admission procedure is calculated as 25% of the results of the entrance examination (max. 100 points) and 75% of the study results obtained in Bachelor degree study (max. 300 points). The results of Bachelor degree study are calculated as the study weighted average of all courses considered with a weight of 0.8 and the mark for the Bachelor thesis defence considered with a weight of 0.2.
      The total number of points obtained in the admission procedure (max. 400 points) is calculated from the formula
      Z + 3 (0.8 . P + 0.2 . B)

      where:
      Z is the number of points for the entrance examination,
      P is the point evaluation of the study weighted average of all courses completed in the Bachelor degree study (specified pursuant to par. 5),
      B is the point evaluation of the mark for the Bachelor thesis defence (specified pursuant to par. 5).

    2. For the study programme of Architecture and Building Engineering, the total number of points in the admission procedure is calculated as 25% of the results of the entrance examination (max. 100 points) and 75% of the study results obtained in Bachelor degree study (max. 300 points). The results of Bachelor degree study are calculated as the study weighted average of "Studio" courses considered with a weight of 0.5, the study weighted average of all courses considered with a weight of 0.3 and the mark for the Bachelor thesis defence considered with a weight of 0.2.
      The total number of points obtained in the admission procedure (max. 400 points) is calculated from the formula
      Z + 3 (0.5 . A + 0.3 . P + 0.2 . B)

      where:
      Z is the number of points for the entrance examination,
      A is the point evaluation of the study weighted average of "Studio" courses completed in Bachelor degree study (specified pursuant to par. 5),
      P is the point evaluation of the study weighted average of all courses completed in Bachelor degree study (specified pursuant to par. 5),
      B is the point evaluation of the mark for the Bachelor thesis defence (specified pursuant to par. 5).

     

  5. The study weighted average is identified pursuant to Art. 12 of the Study and Examination Code for Students of CTU in Prague as amended. If some other university does not use a credit system, the course weight is given by the number of its teaching units per week.
    The study weighted average is recalculated into point evaluation using the formula:
    (125 - 25 . PR),       where PR is the respective study weighted average expressed using two decimal places.

    The marks for individual parts of the state graduation examination and the resulting mark are recalculated into point evaluation as follows:

            A (excellent) 100 points;
            B (very good) 87.5 points;
            C (good) 75 points;
            D (acceptable) 62.5 points;
            E (satisfactory) 50 points.

     

  6. Minimum total numbers of points obtained in the admission procedure necessary for admission to study:
            all study programmes:         240 points.
