Czech Technical University- Prague


Czech Technical University in Prague, Czech Republic - Semester exchange 


Czech Technical University in Prague (CTU) is one of the biggest and oldest technical universities in Europe. CTU was founded in 1707 and is located in the largest city in the Czech Republic . Prague is situated on the Vltava river and home to about 1.3 million people, while its metropolitan area is estimated to have a population of 2.6 million. The city is a political, cultural and economic center of central Europe and is home to a number of well-known cultural attractions, many of which survived the violence and destruction of 20th century Europe. 

CTU currently has eight faculties (Civil Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Nuclear Science and Physical Engineering, Architecture, Transportation Sciences, Biomedical Engineering, Information Technology) more than 18,000 students.

The International Student Club has been active at CTU since 1999. The vision is to establish an international community at CTU in Prague and attempt to integrate foreign students into life in the Czech Republic and into the life of our university. They create an environment where different cultures come together and where students meet (Cafe lingea, excursions, sports events, etc.) We support the active involvement of our members, their self-realization and self-development in a creative environment where an open and friendly atmosphere prevails.

"There's a reason why people who come back from studying abroad talk about it in almost every conversation they can. I believe my time in the Czech Republic put me outside my comfort zone and forced me to learn my strengths and weaknesses. Having classes with students from all over the world exposes you to different cultures and societies which in return allows you to share your experiences living in the US. I think choosing to go abroad was one of the best decisions I've made in my college career."
