Come and soak up the atmosphere of a top university with a personalised approach! Scientists at Faculty of Nuclear Sciences and Physical Engineering of the CTU in Prague have prepared a series of excursions and lectures, where everyone will find something of interest. From a thermonuclear fusion reactor to hi-tech lasers to applications of mathematics in transport systems. You will also learn how to detect the invisible ionizing radiation around us.

The main programme is on Tuesday 28 November from 9.00 to 15.00 at Břehová 7, Prague 1. Here you will find our fusion reactor - the Golem tokamak, but also dosimetrists and nuclear chemistry laboratories. By the way, our chemists will be making ice cream again this year! All the expert lectures will take place in Břehová, with a huge range of topics: from quantum technologies to small modular nuclear reactors to the development of futuristic materials in medicine.

You can also visit our headquarters near Charles Square at Trojanova 13 Street, where experts from the Department of Mathematics (you can visit the powerful computer cluster) and the Department of Physical Electronics (there you can visit the laboratory of space technologies and laser systems, or you can get a glimpse into the world of modelling physical experiments) have prepared a programme.

In the building at V Holešovičkách 2 Street, you will find, among other things, the FemtoLab Femtosecond Laser Laboratory - which is equipped with a laser system using the technology that won its pioneers the 2018 Nobel Prize in Physics. You'll learn how an electron row microscope works, and you can also see industrial computed tomography or the XUV radiation generation research lab.

Full details about the programme can be found on the website:

Come and see that we are doing world-class technology and science. We collaborate with experts from CERN, do cutting-edge mathematics, develop materials for the aerospace industry, and provide nuclear safety training for students and professionals around the world.

We are the only university in the world with two fission and one fusion reactor under one "roof". In addition, our graduates are 100% employable.
