The University of Chemistry and Technology Prague (UCT) is one of the smaller and more accessible research institutions in Europe. Following more than two centuries of tradition, UCT represents a melting pot where scientific discovery meets a friendly study environment with a highly valued personal approach. UCT is a first-rate study and research facility in the field of technical chemistry. The university takes pride in the effective combination of practical preparation with top-quality scientific equipment combined with hands-on laboratory instruction and a personal touch in its teaching style. The university consists of four faculties: Chemical Technology, Environmental Technology, Food and Biomechanical Technology, and Chemical Engineering. Each offers a broad range of bachelor, master and PhD programmes in English in the fields of material engineering, petroleum technology and alternative fuels, biotechnology, microbiology, cosmetics, and others. The number of students is usually around 4,000 with about 700 PhD students at a 1:20 pedagogue-to-student ratio. UCT currently cooperates with more than 200 academic institutions around the globe both in student exchange and research activities. UCT has participated in 32 projects within the 7th Framework programme (FP7), both within research and educational topics. UCT has recently invested more than 22 million Euros from national and European structural funds into advanced instrumentation used mainly by master and PhD students for completing their degrees. This investment thus contributes to enhancing UCT’s competitiveness in the European research environment and in further improvement of student training.
