First semester at the FIT BUT?
Don’t worry, we're here to help you!
Before the beginning of teaching
The traditional Start@FIT event starts on the 19 September 2019, it introduces new students to the faculty and to one another. The students will receive basic information about their studies and learn how to use available information systems. They will also learn how to search for information that might be needed during their studies. We recommend that that the participants move into the dormitories on 18 September 2019. Thise option should be available online;if not, it can be arranged by phone or in person with the contact persons at the Halls of Residence. Just mention that you are attending Start@FIT.
Introduction to academia, Beer with Academics
You are invited to the FIT courtyard (in front of Building D; if it rains, in lecture room D105), whre you will meet academics and employees of FIT. After a brief introduction to the academic environment and FIT, you can enjoy the rest of the evening, chat and meet academics. Refreshments are included.
Matriculation, which takes place on the last Friday before the beginning of classes in winter semester, is an academic ceremony which takes place 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 Student Union will host guided tours of the faculty; the Student Club "U kachničky" (U Kachničky - At the Duckling) will be opened, too.
The event will begin with two training lessons (Friday, 5:30 PM). These tutorials serve to introduce you to schedules and registrations in courses and activities, which 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, the Operating Regulations of the Computer Centre and introduction to the Student Union of FIT, how to use information systems of FIT and the entire BUT and how to make your first schedule.
Training on the Operating Regulations of the Computer Centre is compulsory. Before the first laboratory (at the beginning of said laboratiry, at the latest), you must pass a test in the information system to prove that you've familiarised yourself with the Operating Regulations. If a student is unable attend the training, he/she can watch a recording later. However, this recording will only be available during the following week (updates can be expected as compared to previous years).
After the training, every student who has not yet done so can collect his/her 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 on Saturday (for example, the Tour the Pub event).
Barbecue and Getting to Know Brno
On Sunday, you can play "Brnění" (a game about getting to know Brno) from 11 AM until 3 PM and you can barbecue with Student Union of FIT and FEEC students.
Student Advisory and Student Union
You can find more information on the student counselling page. We recommend that you check the list of tasks that all first-year student should remember. If you have any questions or concerns, you can also contact the Student Union of FIT. 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 students of each year SU FIT will create 2 groups on the Facebook - for students who start their bachelor's study in 2019/2020, they are VUT FIT BIT 2019-2022 (for study related problems) and VUT FIT BIT 2019-2022 teambuilding (for student life, etc.). The Student Union also has a 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. In addition, their previous faculty account is only reactivated. If a student has a 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 identity card to be used as proof of study, it is necessary to have the validation stamp glued to it at the Study 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.
