First semester at FIT BUT?
Don’t worry, we are here to help you!
Before the beginning of teaching
The traditional Start@FIT event starts on the 19th September 2019, that introduces new students to the faculty and to one another. Students are going to get basic information about their study and learn how to use available information systems. They will also learn how to search for information that might be needed during your studies. For the participants it is recommended to accommodate in the dormitories since 18th September 2019. The option should be available online,if not, it can be arranged by phone or in person with with Halls of Residence contact persons. Just mention that you are attending Start@FIT.
Introduction to academia, Beer with Academics
You are invited to the FIT courtyard (before the D building, if it rains, in the lecture room D105), whre you will meet academics and employees of FIT. After a brief introduction to academic environment and FIT, you can enjoy the rest of the evening, chat and meet with academics chat with everyone. Refreshments are included.
Matriculation, which takes place on the last Friday before beginning of teaching in the relevant semester, is an academic ceremony on the occasion of admitting students for their studies. Attendance in matriculation is de facto compulsory. For detailed information and division into groups, please refer to the Study News.
Guided Tours of the Faculty
After every block of matriculations, the Students Union is going to host the guided tours of the faculty and the students club "U kachničky" (U Kachničky - At the Duckling) will also be opened.
The event will begin with two training lessons (Friday, 5:30 PM). These tutorials serve to introduce you to schedules, registrations of courses and activities, that will start on Friday evening. Check back later to find out the times of lessons in English. The trainings will include basic information about study, operating regulations of the computer centre and introduction of the Student union of FIT, how to use information systems of FIT and the entire BUT and how to make your first schedule.
The training on the Operating Regulations of the FIT Computer Centre is compulsory. Before the first laboratory (at it's beginning at the latest), you must pass a test (probably in the information system) to prove that you've familiarized yourself with the Operating Regulations. If a student is unable attend the training, he/she can later watch a recording. However, the recording will only be available in the following week (updates can be expected against previous years).
After the training, every student who has not yet done so can collect the BUT student identity card or ISIC in one of the rooms where the training takes place.
Entertainment activities, Tour de Pub
The entertainment programme organised by the Student Union will follow om Saturday (for example, the Tour the Pub event).
Barbecue and Getting to Know Brno
On Sunday, you can play "Brnění" (the game about getting to know Brno) from 11 AM until 3 PM and you can grill with Student union of FIT and FEEC students.
Student advisory and Student union
You can find more information on the student counselling page. It is recommended to check list of tasks that the first year student should not forget. If you have any questions or concerns, you can also contact Student Union of the Faculty of Information Technology. SU FIT is a group of students interested in the goings on at FIT. The group participates in the decision making of the faculty and represents the students. They also organize Start@FIT event.
For the students of each year SU FIT will create 2 groups on the Facebook - for students who started their bachelor's study in 2019/2020, they are VUT FIT BIT 2019-2022 (or study related problems) and VUT FIT BIT 2019-2022 teambuilding (for the student's life, etc.). The Student Union has also prepared channel on Discord.
Note for students who are not new at BUT
Students who have studied at BUT before need not (and in fact cannot) set their BUTpassword. The password they used most recently remains valid. Also the Faculty account is only reactivated. If a student has the student identity card (from any faculty), he/she need not order a new card. The identity card is activated at the time of enrolment for the access system; for the identity card to be used as proof of study, it is necessary to have the validation stamp glued at the Student's Affairs Department. The ISIC validation stamp should be ordered at the BUT portal, whereas the BUT validation stamp can be collected in person. The BUT stamp can also be used to validate ISIC, thus reducing it to a BUT card.
