The Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science offers Bachelor, Master and doctoral study programmes. Some programmes are further divided into study branches. Bachelor and Master programmes in the English language are offered in the full-time forms only. Doctoral study programmes are offered both in the full-time and part-time forms. The majority of study branches is open to students with disabilities. Study in the English language is subject to a tuition fee.

The Bachelor study lasts three years and the graduates are awarded the academic degree Bachelor (Czech abbreviation Bc.). The follow-up Master study lasts two years and the graduates are awarded the academic degree Master of Science (Czech abbreviation Ing.). Graduates of a Bachelor study in the same or similar study programme can continue in the follow-up Master study. The doctoral study lasts four years and the graduates obtain the academic degree doctor of philosophy (Ph.D.). This study is a follow-up to the completed Master studies, and the student demonstrates the ability of independent scientific work.

About study programme

The Doctoral Study Program (DSP) Bioinformatics and Computational Biology is a combined study program aimed to three areas of education (Informatics; Biology, Ecology and the Environment; General Medicine and dentistry). It is a multidisciplinary "doctoral degree" program between two universities. All subjects offered to students of this DSP are a combination of subjects focused on informatics - guaranteed by VŠB-TUO (50%), and subjects focused on biology and medical sciences - guaranteed by Palacky University in Olomouc (30% + 20%). Also the interuniversity ratio 50:50 appears to be optimal from perspective of the offer of subjects, staffing of the program, the profile of the graduate and the demand for graduates at labor market.
