Study targets
The aim of the Information Technology Bachelor Degree Programme  is to prepare alumni who are able to use both hardware and software systems at a high professional level. They are able to act as designers, programmers, and servicemen of information and communication systems, digital systems, computer networks, computer-based systems and programmers and administrators of database systems and information systems. The programme is open for teachers of higher schools who aim to complete their knowledge in the branch of information technology for the purposes of teaching.
Graduate Profile
A graduates have a theoretical background in computer hardware and software. They are a qualified and flexible workers being able to adapt specific conditions at the working site.

Graduates usually work like analysts, designers, programmers, testers, and maintenance specialists for computer applications (e.g., database and information systems, web applications, mobile devices), digital systems, computer systems, and computer networks, secondary school IT teachers or a qualified computer businessmans.
Occupational profiles of graduates
Nearly 100 % of FIT graduates can easily find a job these days. Even back in 2015, the average unemployment period was less than a month and according to the development at the labour market over the last couple years, we can expect that period to be significantly shorter these days. The interest in FIT graduates is further reflected by the fact that they take part in training practice during their studies.

Bachelor study programme graduates who do not continue in master degree programme find jobs in both small and medium firms as well as large companies. The employers are residential (39 %) and foreign (43 %) companies, that are usually dedicated to software and hardware development. FIT graduates employed by these companies are mostly regular employees (84 %), but a significant portion of them (15.2 %) also work in low-level to middle-level management and some of them (0.8 %) even in top-level management. FIT graduates show the highest satisfaction when it comes to their employment and salary.

Graduates are usually members of national and international development teams, that apply their knowledge in development of computer systems and applications, database and information systems, mobile and web applications, digital systems etc. Other jobs include positions such as computer systems installation technicians, network administrators or applications programmers. Graduates often start their businesses focused on development of mobile applications, database and information systems or web applications. They can find jobs also as secondary education teachers of information technology or as qualified entrepreneurs in the field of computing.

The qualities of FIT graduates that employers value the most are good basic theoretical knowledge, considerable practical capabilities, ability to work in team and high adaptability to specific workplace conditions.
Admission Requirements
Secondary education completed with the General Certificate of Secondary Education is the condition of admission to studies. An entrance exam is not a part of admissions. Instead of an entrance exam, the applicants take part in a selected test within the National Comparative Exams (NSZ) organized by SCIO company. The applicants can choose from OSP (General Study Presumptions), MAT (Mathematics) or VŠP (General Study Presumptions in Slovak). An applicant can sit for a selected test for free when he or she applies for admission soon enough. In case an applicant fulfils one of the announced conditions, he or she can ask for preferential admission and so avoid NSZ. The complete and updated rules for admissions are to be found at the following link: https://www.fit.vut.cz/applicants/
Conditions of graduation
A one-term study course is the basic teaching modulus of a study plan. Every field of study has compulsory courses (a student must pass all of them), compulsorily elective ones (a student chooses the required number of courses from each group of compulsorily optional courses or the required number of credits) and optional ones. A student chooses optional courses from a list within the given field. There are two groups of compulsory elective courses in the bachelor study programme: PVA - English (the student has to pass an English exam at the BAN4 level or higher level or have it recognized) and PVT - technical (the student has to pass one of the IVH, ICP, ICS, and IJA courses).

A student of the Bachelor Degree Programme must gain at least 15 credits in the 1st term of the study and at least 30 credits in every year of the study. In case a student studies just one semester in a certain academic year, the number of credits to be obtained in this year is reduced to 15 credits). In case a student registered less than 60 credits, in order to be allowed to continue the studies it is enough for him or her to obtain at least a half of the registered credits in such a year. Credits from recognized courses are not included in obtained credits for this condition. In case a student does not obtain a sufficient number of credits in a certain part of the studies, his or her studies are terminated due to non-fulfilment of the requirements according to § 56 subsection 1 letter b) of Higher Education Act.

In order to finish the Bachelor Degree Study Programme it is necessary to complete courses successfully in the total extent of at least 180 credits, to prepare a bachelor's final thesis and to pass a state final exam. The state final exam consists of a bachelor's thesis defence and an oral part of the state final exam. The oral part consists of a technical discussion about one of the announced thematic areas between the student and members of the examining committee.
Rules for curriculum content setup
The compulsory courses are composed in a way to build prerequisites for the successor courses. Optional courses are offered after compulsory courses which prepare for them the theoretical background.
Evaluation Principles
Study evaluation is based on points obtained for specified items of the appropriate course, as home works, projects, oral presentations, tests, midterm exams, final exam, etc. The maximum number of points is 100. The final study report consists of records of the overall points and a classifying symbol from the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS) (A; B; C; D; E; F). The General Grade Average is calculated from classification grades A=1, B=1.5, C=2, D=2.5, and E=3. Student evaluation is based on the credit system compatible with ECTS (European Credit Transfer System). The final examination of each course can be written, oral, or combined.
Key learning outcomes
Students will understand all the layers of the computer based systems including hardware (semiconductor components, logic networks, processors, peripheral devices), software (control and data structures, object orientation, programming languages, compilers, operating systems, databases), as well as their common applications (information systems, computer networks, artificial intelligence, computer graphics and multimedia). They will understand foundations of computer science (discrete mathematics, formal languages and their models, spectral analysis of signals, modelling and simulation). Graduates will be able to analyse, design, implement, test, and maintain common computer applications. They will be able to work efficiently in teams.
Extent of the final state examinations
The State Final Examination has two parts: A defence of the Bachelor Thesis, and an oral colloquium. This oral colloquium is based on compulsory courses.
