Last year, CTU became part of a prestigious alliance of six major European technical universities called EuroTeQ Engineering University. The alliance also consists of the Technical University of Denmark, Eidhoven University of Technology, École Polytechnique, Technical University of Munich, Tallinn University of Technology and 45 industrial partners. Two universities operating outside the EU, EPFL from Switzerland and Technion from Israel, are also interested in co-solving the project. The pilot three-year project aims to create a new educational format based on research, innovation and also has the ambition to create a new model of engineering education. A new EuroTeQ Honors award and a EuroTeQ Professional certificate is planned as well.
The Open Data Science Europe Workshop 2021 , on the processing of spatial data using open source tools will be held in Wageningen, the Netherlands from 6 to 10 September 2021. Its participants will focus mainly on the use of machine learning. Its participants will focus mainly on the use of machine learning in modeling spatiotemporal data of the European landscape and climate. The workshop will be held in English and is organized by the OpenGeoHub Foundation, co-organized by the Department of Geomatics, Faculty of Civil Engineering.
The Career Day will take place at the Faculty of Transportation Technology on 14 April 2021, from 9.00 to 15.00. The virtual job fair will allow students of the faculty to meet potential employers in the field of transportation who are looking for possible future colleagues and employees. Fair participants will receive detailed information about employment, internships or other forms of cooperation.
Dear colleagues, dear students, Today is a year since the COVID epidemic claimed its first victim in the Czech Republic. Over the past year, almost 25,000 people have succumbed to the epidemic, a memory of which we will commemorate today with a minute's silence at 12 noon. Please also join this silent memory.
Current complicated situation does not allow the IAESTE student organization to hold a trade fair in its traditional form, which has been organized for more than two decades in the academic environment of major universities. The students therefore decided on a new joint project, in which both the local centers of the organization and a number of important institutions and employers participate. In the course of one day, specifically April 14 from 9.00 to 16.00, university students can use the opportunity to establish contacts with representatives of many companies.

A new student television channel, the TV9P, was launched in the autumn of 2020, broadcasting for CTU students and employees. It was an idea of rector doc. Vojtěch Petráček, who was looking for a way to stay in touch and communicate with students as they cannot attend university and be in personal contact.
Rector doc. Vojtěch Petráček presented diplomas of the President of the Republic to three new CTU professors - prof. Jan Hrdliček from the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, prof. Daniel Rypl from the Faculty of Civil Engineering and prof. Tomáš Svoboda from the Faculty of Electrical Engineering on 2 April 2, 2021 as part of the TV9P broadcast.
The Faculty of Civil Engineering has finished the complete reconstruction of its two largest auditoriums. The new facade cladding, which in form follows on building modifications carried out on other parts of the faculty building in the past, makes the original abstract plastic stone mosaic by Martin Sladký on the front facade of the auditoriums. The interior itself has undergone a drastic transformation and thanks to the glass side walls transmitting ample of light, it was conceived inside as a black box. The most attractive element of the auditoriums was the highly functional Glasio absorption acoustic cladding, made of black crystal glass, which gives the place a technical form and is a Czech patent from Aveton. The total investment amounted to 85.069 million crowns, the contract was realized by VW Wachal company.
The Uniqway University Carsharing project has merged with the Czech Red Cross and provides cars for the delivery of paramedics from Prague to nearby hospitals. Volunteers are drafted among its users who can get involved and dedicate their time to good things.
The VENT-CONNECT project, which enables remote monitoring of lung ventilators and vital signs monitors, especially in patients with COVID-19 connected to artificial lung ventilation, passed the preclinical phase and received a positive opinion from the ethics committee of the Royal Vinohrady University Hospital (FNKV). The technical solution developed by the team of the Czech Technical University in Prague composed of researchers from the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Czech Institute of Informatics, Robotics and Cybernetics (CIIRC) and the Faculty of Biomedical Engineering in cooperation with the Department of Anaesthesiology and Resuscitation (KAR) streamlines condition monitoring for patients in the infection zone with remote access to ventilator screens and vital signs monitors. This allows physicians to adjust lung ventilator parameters more accurately during treatment, which of course leads to better patient care. The solution is cheap and easy to deploy in other workplaces, be it COVID-19 or others.
