Computer studies at Czech Universities

Are you thinking of studying IT in the Czech Republic? The choice of university depends on whether you are interested in software engineering or in applied informatics, i.e., on application of computer studies in different fields of science, manufacture and business.

Theoretical Computer Science

Theoretical Computer Science is the study of complicated mathematical computations during information processing. Training in this field will allow you to do research in informatics. Many graduates go on to do a post graduate degree. At the same time, a solid theoretical background and programming skills, acquired during the study, allow graduates to work towards finding solutions for complicated real-life problems.

Where to study:

Czech Technical University in Prague (ČVUT) – School of Electrical Engineering Maths test and Czech language B2 certificate required.

Masaryk University – School of Informatics TSP test required (measures general entrance level qualification).

Mathematical Informatics

Apart from practical knowledge in programming, students trained in this field will acquire deep theoretical knowledge. This specialisation is for you if you are interested in principles information systems operation. Training includes a detailed study of the fundamentals of mathematics, theoretical mathematics and artificial intelligence. Also, you are going to study computer modelling.

Where to study:

Czech Technical University in Prague (ČVUT) – School of Nuclear Sciences and Physical Engineering

The only requirement for enrolment in the Bachelor’s degree program is to present the Czech language B2 certificate. Admission is without entrance exams.

Masaryk University – Faculty of Science TSP test required (measures general entrance level qualification).

Applied Informatics

As opposed to the above-mentioned specialisations, applied informatics doesn’t require deep knowledge of mathematics. Students learn how to apply modern technologies in practice. You are going to study theory to some extent, though. The main subjects include programming (C#, Java, .NET, PHP), operating systems, software development, basics of maths disciplines. Graduates develop software, work as programmers, network administrators or analysts.

Where to study:

Czech Technical University in Prague (ČVUT) – School of Nuclear Sciences and Physical Engineering

The only requirement for enrolment in the Bachelor’s degree program is to present the Czech language B2 certificate. Admission is without entrance exams.

Masaryk University – School of Informatics TSP test required (measures general entrance level qualification).

Brno University of Technology (VUT) – School of Electrical Engineering and Communication Applicants may take either maths and physics tests or maths and fundamentals of informatics tests.

Other universities that offer this specialisation:

University of South Bohemia – Faculty of Science University of Ostrava – Faculty of Science Institute of Mining – Technical University of Ostrava – School of Economics University of Hradec Kralove – Faculty of Science Palacký University – Faculty of Science

Managerial Informatics

The specialisation was launched in response to high demand of businesses to have staff trained in information technology who are able to manage and control IT function activities. During the study period, you will develop presentation skills. The main subjects include economics, enterprise economics, management, commercial law, basics of information technology, information processing techniques and application of mathematical methods in economics.

Geo-informatics

Geo-informatics is a relatively young and very promising specialisation. You will study data acquisition and visualization, geographic information systems, navigation GPS-like systems, compilation of 3D maps, digital simulation models, time and space predictive modelling.

Where to study:

Czech Technical University in Prague (ČVUT) – School of Civil Engineering

Maths test and Czech language B2 certificate required. Charles University – Faculty of Science TSP test required and either a maths test or a geography test is required – applicant may choose which one they prefer.

Other universities that offer this specialisation: Mendel University in Brno – School of Forest Management Masaryk University – Faculty of Science University of Ostrava – Faculty of Science Palacký University – Faculty of Science Institute of Mining – Technical University of Ostrava – School of Mining Engineering and Geology

Bioinformatics and Cheminformatics

The modern specialisation of bioinformatics came to existence at the interface of molecular and cell biology, biochemistry, statistics, and informatics. A specialist in bioinformatics does not research biological phenomena in situ or in vitro. All connections and regularities in living systems are studied using computer-aided bio-simulation. This allows to analyse and process a huge amounts of data. Graduates conduct scientific research and are sought-after by pharmaceutical companies and healthcare facilities.

Where to study:

Czech Technical University in Prague (ČVUT) – School of Biomedical Engineering Test in biology and physics is required.

Masaryk University – School of Informatics TSP test required (measures general entrance level qualification).

Brno University of Technology (VUT) – School of Electrical Engineering and Communication

Applicants may take either maths and physics tests or maths and fundamentals of informatics tests.

University of Chemistry and Technology, Prague (VŠCHT) – School of Chemical Technology Admission is without entrance exams.

Public Management Informatics

Information and communication technologies are important for public management. The specialty subjects include disciplines in the field of informatics, communication technology, information systems, economics and public management as well as law.

Where to study:

Masaryk University – School of Informatics TSP test required (measures general entrance level qualification).

The following universities also provide training in this specialisation: University of Pardubice – School of Economics and Management

Economic Informatics

There are other specialisations to choose from, such as Economic Informatics, Financial Informatics and Statistics and Informatics and Internet for Entrepreneurship. Graduates are highly competitive in economics sector both in public management and private companies.

Where to study:

Institute of Entrepreneurship

Other universities that offer this specialisation: Institute of Mining – Technical University of Ostrava – School of Economics University of West Bohemia – School of Applied Sciences Mendel University in Brno – School of Economics Technical University of Liberec – School of Economics
