Brno University of Technology


The Brno University of Technology is one of the oldest universities in the Czech Republic. Its origin can be traced back to 1849, when a German-Czech Technical School was established in Brno. The Czech Technical University in Brno was founded in 1899, when the Department of Civil Engineering was established by a decree of the Emperor Francis Joseph I. By 1914 there were already five departments: civil engineering, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, "cultural engineering" (drainage and irrigation complexes, bridges, dams, canals) and chemical engineering.vut

Between World War I and World War II the Czech Technical University ranked among the best technical universities in Europe and attracted many foreign students. ln November 1939, at the beginning of World War II, it was closed along with the rest of the Czech universities in the country, and was reopened only in 1945.

The years of Communist rule in the country proved difficult for the university, but in 1989 academic freedom returned. In 1992 the Faculty of Business and Management and the Faculty of Chemistry were established. One year later the Faculty of Fine Arts came into being. In 1999 the name Brno University of Technology was introduced. In 2002 the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science was divided into the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Communication and the Faculty of Information Technology.

At the present time, 17,561 students are enrolled at the university.
