Gradutes of Bachelor’s or Master’s programmes may apply for an entrance examination together along with the students of Bachelor’s or Master’s last year who pass their studies until the registration date – registration is possible only after they pass their Bachelor’s or Master’s studies.

The deadline for application form is 30/4/2021. The entrance examination is different pro Master’s programmes at CTU FEE – see general information about applying. The exact form of exams or possible waiver are still to be deduced due to the pandemic.

For Czech language studies there are possibilities for waiver when the weighted study average is better than 1.8 when a similar study programme is finished. See exact entrance exam instructions (cz). Other applicants are invited to the written entrance examination in Czech language that takes 2 hours. Accepted are the ones that gain over 70 % of points. Applicants with 50 % to 70 % points may be accepted based on a decision of entrance committe that may e.g. be influence by study results at previous studies. Those, who gain less than 50 %, are not accepted.

The exam itself verifies knowledge of mathematics, physics, electrical engineering and informatic in a range of compulsory courses for Bachelor’s programme of BIO. It is acceptable for the applicants to miss some of the knowledge but then it is necessary to select a respective specialization where it is not as crucial. The exam consists of written answers for a greater number of multi-choice smaller questions. See 120 such questions that may be present in the test for the applicants to prepare. In the real test there is a much smaller number of questions (30) and 2 hours.

The required informatics knowledge are roughly that of the course Algorithms and programming with the addition that exact knowledge of Python is not needed but rather terms such as computational complexity, programming techniques, data structures and algortihms. There are available materials from lectures, literature and examples of final exam tests.

Required informatics topics:

  • variables, functions, conditional proměnné, funkce, podmíněné statements and loops,
  • datatypes record, array, front, stack, linklist, binary search tree,
  • datové typy záznam, pole, fronta, zásobník, spojový seznam, binární vyhledávací strom, associative array, heap,
  • sorting and searching algorithms,
  • simple algortihms analysis, time complexity.

Reguired mathematics topics:

  • linear algebra (linear space, vectors, matrix,
  • lineární algebra (lineární prostor, vektory, matice, system of linear equations, linear map),
  • mathematical analysis (sequences, functions of single or multiple variables, derivation, partial and total derivation, (multiple) integration, extremes, curve and surfaceintegral),
  • solving simple differential equations of the first order,
  • complex numbers and operations with them, basics of Fourier transform,
  • statistics and probability (conditional probability, Bayes’ rule, random variable and vector, distributions description, mean, variance, correlation, independence, central limit theorem, hypotheses testing).

Required physics and electrical engineering topics:

  • mechanics (kinematics and dynamics of mass pont, Newton laws, kinetic and potential energy, work, power, laws of conservation),
  • mechanics of fluids, liquids flow, ideal gas,
  • electric and magnetic field, electric charge, electric current, voltage, Ohm’s law, electromagnetic induction,
  • thermodynamics, heat and temperature, thermodynamic events,
  • acoustics, basic acoustic quantities, wave equation,
  • optics (geometric optics – reflection and refraction, lenses; wave optics – diffraction, interference, Fresnel and Fraunhofer diffration)
  • circuit quantities, basic passive electrical elements (resistor, capacitor, inductor),
  • Kirchoff’s circuit laws, elementary analysis of electrical circuits, circuit equations,
  • transients, harmonic steady state, basics of digital technologies.
