Bachelor Studies in the Czech Technical Universities.
Polak, Jaromir
Universities are the highest level of the Czech school education system, as well as important scientific institutions that are granted full autonomy under the law. There are five technical universities and one military school with technical courses in the Czech Republic. Until the 1990s, the universities had provided only the five years magister study programs (engineering study), but the first University Law issued after the Velvet Revolution introduced the bachelor's degree. According to the recommendation of OECD, nearly all Czech technical universities have introduced the three-year bachelor study programs. There are two interpretations of them: (1) serial--prerequisite undergraduate programs with the possibility of continuing in a magister degree program; and (2) parallel--completed programs with only basic knowledge acquisition from theoretical subjects but more practical experience acquisition in each course of study. This paper focuses on the latter type and describes the problems with development and implementation of new bachelor study programs and their coexistence with magister study programs at traditional Czech technical universities with the practical placement as a stage of study and with the assertion of non-traditional new graduates in an industry.
