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 16 September 2021, 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 15 September 2021. 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.
The program of the event will be specified on this page on August.
Introduction to academia, Informal meeting 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.
There will be a team building event Tour de Pub in the evening.
The entertainment programme organised by the Student Union will follow on Saturday.
Barbecue and Getting to Know Brno
On Sunday, you can play "Brnění" (a game about getting to know Brno) and than you can barbecue with Student Union of FIT in Lužánky park.
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 2020/2021, they are VUT FIT BIT 2020-2023 (for study related problems) and VUT FIT BIT 2020-2023 Teambuilding (for student life, etc.). For Masters programme students they are VUT FIT MIT 2020-2022 and VUT FIT MIT 2020-2022 Teambuilding. There's also an unofficial Discord server maintained by students.
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.
