|The knowledge and other presumptions that must be fulfilled by a candidate to be accepted for studies:|
Secondary education completed with the General Certificate of Secondary Education is the condition of admission to studies. An entrance exam is not a part of admissions. Instead of an entrance exam, the applicants take part in a selected test within the National Comparative Exams (NSZ) organized by SCIO company. The applicants can choose from OSP (General Study Presumptions), MAT (Mathematics) or VŠP (General Study Presumptions in Slovak). An applicant can sit for a selected test for free when he or she applies for admission soon enough. In case an applicant fulfils one of the announced conditions, he or she can ask for preferential admission and so avoid NSZ. The complete and updated rules for admissions are to be found at the following link: http://www.fit.vutbr.cz/admissions/
|The conditions that must be fulfilled by a student during the study period and when finishing the studies:|
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.

|The rules for including courses into the curriculum:|
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.
|A brief description of evaluation principles:|
Study evaluation is based on marks obtained for specified items of the appropriate course, as home works, projects, oral presentations, tests, midterm exams, final exam, etc. The maximum number of marks is 100. The final study report consists of records of the overall marks and a classifying symbol from the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS) (A; B; C; D; E; F). The General Grade Average is calculated from classification grades A=1, B=1.5, C=2, D=2.5, and E=3. Student evaluation is based on the credit system compatible with ECTS (European Credit Transfer System). The final examination of each course can be written, oral, or combined.
