The University of Chemistry and Technology, Prague, was included in this year's Tyden magazine rankings, which compare educational institutions according to individual disciplines and evaluates them on the basis of selected criteria.
The fifth best faculty in the Czech Republic in the category of Natural Sciences was the Faculty of Environmental Technology.
Six European universities joined forces under the umbrella of Erasmus Mundus to create the joint study programme Erasmus Mundus Master in Membrane Engineering for a Sustainable World.
This new project, which follows the recently completed EM3E, enabled almost 80 students from abroad (primarily from China, India, Ethiopia, and the Ukraine) to utilize UCT Prague‘s lecture halls and laboratories.
During the next five years, interested students from the Czech Republic will have the opportunity to complete their Master studies with no fee at the same time at all six participating universities. In addition to UCT Prague, participating universities include those in Twente, Lisbon, Zaragzoze, Toulouse and Montpellier.
The programme includes four semesters. The first semester, students will study materials science and chemical engineering at the French universities, Montpellier and Toulouse. The next semester, at UCT Prague, focuses primarily on process engineering issues, including the basics of mathematical modeling. The third semester, students select one of three specialties, each provided by another university. For the biotechnology, food and health specialty, students study at the University of Lisbon in Portugal. For the nanoscience and nantechnologies specialty, students attend classes in Spain, at Zaragoze. The energy and (living) environment specialty is hosted by the University of Twente.
In the final semester, students decide on their own where they which to complete their Master thesis. The entire programme is conducted in English.
For more information about the program, please contact Dr. Vlastimil Fíla (firstname.lastname@example.org) or prof. Karel Bouzek (email@example.com).

Pekárek, a student at the Faculty of Food and Biochemical Technology, was interested in introducing procedures for the purification of viral structural proteins. By analysing their interactions with nucleic acid, he laid the foundations for the introduction of a quantitative system for composing Dengue and Zika virus particles and testing potential inhibitors of these dangerous viruses.
The Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports has been granting this award since 2014. Students or graduates of Bachelor, Master, or PhD program are eligible for awards based on outstanding results in studies or scientific, research, development, artistic, or other creative activities related to their studies.
