Study plan creation

Courses are evaluated according to ECTS credits. The credit expresses an approximate weekly student's workload for the course. Credits for a given course are obtained after the prescribed completion, i.e. after awarding a credit, classified credit, or by passing an exam under the conditions of the BUT Rules of Study and Examination, the internal standard of the Rules for Organization of Studies at FEEC and the composition and content individually defined in each course.
In a three-year bachelor study, the student must earn at least 180 credits in the specified credit composition:
166 credits in compulsory courses,
5 credits for elaboration, submission and successful defense of bachelor thesis,
4 credits in compulsory elective (PV) courses,
at least 5 credits in elective courses.

Obligatory courses are usually completed by the student in semesters and years as stated in the curriculum. If a student fails to complete a compulsory course in the prescribed manner, he / she must register it again in the following year of his / her studies.
During the study, students must complete two English courses (English for Bachelors, English for Electrical Engineering).
Elective courses extend the general knowledge of students. Courses are chosen by the student himself or herself from a full-faculty offer (FEEC departments) or from the other faculties of VUT (so-called free courses) and can pass them in any year or semester of bachelor study. Elective courses include Physical Education. If a student has not successfully completed an elective course, he / she may or may not write another academic year in the next academic year.
Students must obtain the corresponding electrotechnic qualification at the beginning of their study.

Professional experience length

Bachelor study programme requires professional practice at the length of four weeks (160 hours) in health institutes, companies or enterprises focused on health services, production, operation, research, sales and services of biomedical technology, bioinformatics both home or abroad. The practise is self-organized by the student and it has to be performed outside the regular semester (recommended is the summer period). The practise has to be performed before the end of the regular bachelor studies.

What degree programme types may have preceded

The graduates may continue in a master's study programme.
