About us

There are only two public institutes in the Czech Republic where the programmes focus on the applicability of knowledge rather than just theory and VŠTE is one of them. During the last study year, all programs include one semester of professional work experience.

The primary focus of VŠTE activities is the implementation of full-time and part-time studies for professional bachelor’s and master’s degree programmes. The professional study programmes are supported by cooperation with regional entrepreneurs. Other priorities of VŠTE include applied research, the implementation of innovative technologies and knowledge transfer into areas that are current and crucial with regards to the regions needs.
