Prague, 2 March - A newly-renovated student laboratory for inorganic chemistry opened on Monday in a symbolic ceremony in which University of Chemistry and Technology, Prague (UCT Prague) Rector Karel Melzoch symbolically handed over the keys to students. Renovation of the lab is the first tangible output of the "KvaLab" project, which began this year and is dedicated to improving the quality of teaching laboratories for students.
Under the auspices of the project, over eight hundred million crowns will be invested with one primary goal - to create the highest-caliber educational conditions for students. "At the end of this project, to which all of us will devote a substantial amount of energy, we will - to embellish slightly - have a new UCT Prague," explained Milan Pospisil, Vice-Rector for Strategies and Development.
The modernization project is divided into three main phases. First, reconstruction of teaching laboratories and lecture halls within the UCT Prague building, followed by the purchase of new equipment for the basic, industrial, and research laboratories. The third pillar of the project includes a universal W-Fi network for the entire UCT Prague campus as well as virtualization software applications. The investment in a total of twenty-nine key pieces of equipment - some of which will be unique to the Czech Republic - will exceed five million crowns (not including VAT).
"The entire investment will have make an essential contribution to the quality of education for our students. UCT Prague is committed to practical laboratory and project-based learning experiences, which will now be supported by excellent equipment," said Vice-Rector Pospisil.
This UCT Prague project, with an anticipated completion date of December 2015, is funded by an operational programme for research and development of innovation.
