Study aims

The aim of the Information Technology Bachelor Degree Programme  is to prepare alumni who are able to use both hardware and software systems at a high professional level. They are able to act as designers, programmers, and servicemen of information and communication systems, digital systems, computer networks, computer-based systems and programmers and administrators of database systems and information systems. The programme is open for teachers of higher schools who aim to complete their knowledge in the branch of information technology for the purposes of teaching.

Graduate profile

A graduates have a theoretical background in computer hardware and
software. They are a qualified and flexible workers being able to adapt
specific conditions at the working site.

Graduates usually work
like analysts, designers, programmers, testers, and maintenance
specialists for computer applications (e.g., database and information
systems, web applications, mobile devices), digital systems, computer
systems, and computer networks, secondary school IT teachers or a qualified computer businessmans.

Profession characteristics

Nearly 100 % of FIT graduates can easily find a job these days. Even back in 2015, the average unemployment period was less than a month and according to the development at the labour market over the last couple years, we can expect that period to be significantly shorter these days. The interest in FIT graduates is further reflected by the fact that they take part in training practice during their studies.

Bachelor study programme graduates who do not continue in master degree programme find jobs in both small and medium firms as well as large companies. The employers are residential (39 %) and foreign (43 %) companies, that are usually dedicated to software and hardware development. FIT graduates employed by these companies are mostly regular employees (84 %), but a significant portion of them (15.2 %) also work in low-level to middle-level management and some of them (0.8 %) even in top-level management. FIT graduates show the highest satisfaction when it comes to their employment and salary.

Graduates are usually members of national and international development teams, that apply their knowledge in development of computer systems and applications, database and information systems, mobile and web applications, digital systems etc. Other jobs include positions such as computer systems installation technicians, network administrators or applications programmers. Graduates often start their businesses focused on development of mobile applications, database and information systems or web applications. They can find jobs also as secondary education teachers of information technology or as qualified entrepreneurs in the field of computing.

The qualities of FIT graduates that employers value the most are good basic theoretical knowledge, considerable practical capabilities, ability to work in team and high adaptability to specific workplace conditions.

Fulfilment criteria

A one-term study course is the basic teaching modulus of a study plan.
Every field of study has compulsory courses (a student must pass all of them), compulsorily elective ones (a student
chooses the required number of courses from each group of compulsorily optional
courses or the required number of credits) and optional ones. A student chooses optional courses from a list
within the given field. There are two groups of compulsory elective courses in the bachelor study programme: PVA - English (the student has to pass an English exam at the BAN4 level or higher level or have it recognized) and PVT - technical (the student has to pass one of the IVH, ICP, ICS, and IJA courses).

A student of the Bachelor Degree Programme must gain at least 15 credits in the 1st term of the study and at least 30 credits in every year
of the study. In case a student studies just one semester in a certain academic
year, the number of credits to be obtained in this year is reduced to 15
credits). In case a student registered less than 60 credits, in order to be allowed to continue the studies it is enough for him
or her to obtain at least a half of the registered credits in such a year.
Credits from recognized courses are not included in obtained credits for this condition. In case a
student does not obtain a sufficient number of credits in a certain part of the
studies, his or her studies are terminated due to non-fulfilment of the
requirements according to § 56 subsection 1 letter b) of Higher Education Act.

In order to finish the Bachelor Degree Study Programme it is necessary to
complete courses successfully in the total extent of at least 180 credits, to prepare a bachelor's final thesis and to pass a state final exam. The state final exam
consists of a bachelor's thesis defence and an oral part of the state final exam.
The oral part consists of a technical discussion about one of the announced
thematic areas between the student and members of the examining committee.

Study plan creation

The compulsory courses are composed in a way to build prerequisites for the successor courses. Optional courses are offered after compulsory courses which prepare for them the theoretical background.

Availability for the disabled

Brno university of technology provides studies for persons with health disabilities according to section 21 par. 1 e) of the Act no. 111/1998, about universities and about the change and supplementing other laws (Higher Education Act) as amended, and according to the requirements in this field arising from Government Regulation No. 274/2016 Coll., on standards for accreditation in higher education, provides services for study applicants and students with specific needs within the scope and in form corresponding with the specification stated in Annex III to Rules for allocation of a financial contribution and funding for public universities by the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports, specifying financing additional costs of studies for students with specific needs.
