Faculty of Transportation Sciences is a modern faculty that is an incubator of innovation in transport and keeps its finger on pulse of transportation. It also offers the opportunity to experience Faculty of Transport for yourself and visit its Open Doors Day, which will take place on 24 November 2023.

The opportunity to experience CTU Faculty of Transportation Sciecnes on your own skin, is what the current students of the faculty offer to high school students. Students of the faculty play a leading role at the upcoming Open Doors Day, which will take place in the building at Horská 3 street in Prague 2, on Friday, 24 November 2023 from 9.00 to 15.00

"Our current students remember well how getting to know their future university (faculty) first-hand played a decisive role in deciding on their further studies, " says PaedDr. Lenka Kubešová Zápotocká from the PR team of CTU Faculty of Transportation Sciences.

The programme starts at 9.00 with short lectures on the study programmes and specialisations that can be studied at the faculty. Visitors will thus learn that the faculty covers the entire spectrum of transport with its study programmes and specialisations. It trains top professionals in the fields of transport, smart cities, logistics, aviation and transport systems. At the end of the lectures, high school students can look forward to a raffle for a future Transportation Engineer.

After the lectures, there will be stands of individual departments and institutes with interesting interactive exhibits and demonstrations of projects.

Applicants can get all the information they need about the admissions process from the staff at the study department. At the main InfoPoint, current students will answer all questions about their studies and subsequent employment. Groups will also leave from here for guided tours of the building and laboratories, where the guides will again be students of Faculty of Transportation Sciences.

Those interested will have a look into the faculty's premises, top laboratories and specialised workplaces where the future of transportation is being created. Rail fans will enjoy a visit to the Transportation Hall with a model railway track and a showcase of railway technology. Aviation enthusiasts will definitely be impressed by the ATC simulator (air traffic control simulation), the Airbus A-320 flight simulator. For motorcycle fans, there will be a presentation of the student racing team of the faculty - the CTU Lions and demonstrations of their racing motorcycles. There will also be vehicle simulators and much more.

In the chill out zone, you will be able to chat with current students over coffee, who will be ready to answer any questions you may have about studying and student life at the faculty. The Open Day could not take place without students from the eFDrive student club, which will also be present at the event. Visitors will learn about what events the club holds, how to join the club, and most importantly, get information about the UZEL meet-up event, which is one of the club's biggest and most popular events.

High school students and other visitors have a lot to look forward to, because they will get to see under the hood of the faculty and experience Prague´s school of transportation on their own.

Timetable - the programme of the Open Day is here.
