Higher education student and staff mobility project
Start date: Jun 1, 2015,
End date: Sep 30, 2016
The Czech Technical University in Prague is one of the oldest and largest technical universities in Europe. It currently has 8 faculties (Civil Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Nuclear Science and Physical Engineering, Architecture, Transportation Sciences, Biomedical Engineering, and Information Technologies) and about 21 000 students. CTU in Prague has been participating actively in Erasmus/Erasmus+ programme projects since 1998/1999, when the Czech Republic joined the programme. Right from the beginning, the University has participated in all types of mobilities, and internships were available through the Leonardo da Vinci programme. The programme is administered centrally by the University International Office. There are faculty coordinators at each faculty. The https://www.mobility.cvut.cz database was set up so that students and staff can apply to the programme and can follow the progress of the selection procedure (registration of points awarded for the written and oral language tests, nomination of selected students) and the departure arrangements for nominated students (transcripts of students’ personal data, preparation of contracts, financial arrangements, preparing and checking the transfer of grants, etc).
For the 2015/2016 academic year, 525 Institutional Agreements were signed with 284 European universities. 271 students took part in a study stay at a partner university. 18 teachers completed a teaching stay. 7 staff members participated in a training session. As in previous years, the majority of the outgoing students (82%) were post-bachelor students. Only 15% of the participants went abroad in the framework of a bachelor study programme. The remaining 3% were PhD students. The most active participants in Erasmus mobilities were students of the Faculty of Architecture (64 students, i.e. 24% of all outgoing students) and the Faculty of Civil Engineering (55 students, 20% of all outgoing students). These were followed by the Faculty of Electrical Engineering (46 students, 17%), the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering (35 students, 13 %), the Faculty of Information Technologies (33 students, 12 %). Almost one third of the outgoing students (31 %) were female. The working language of 74% of the students was English, 12,5% studied in German. 7% studied in French, 3,3 % studied in Spanish and 2 % in Italian. Two students studied in Portuguese and two in Slovenian.
51 traineeships were organized within the project, and most of them were covered by organisations we have been collaborating with on a long-term basis.
The traineeships were organized for 25 students (bachelors and masters), 9 doctoral students and 17 graduates. These students can be divided according their home faculty as follows:
Faculty of Architecture: 29 students,
Faculty of Civil Engineering: 14 students,
Faculty of Biomedical Engineering: 2 students,
Faculty of Nuclear Science and Physical Engineering: 1 students,
Faculty of Electrical Engineering: 2 student,
Faculty of Transportation Sciences: 1 student,
Masaryk Institute of Advanced Studies: 2 student.
