The history of Czech University of Life Sciences Prague (CULS) starts in 1906. Currently the university has more than 18 000 students (10% are international students), 6 Faculties and 1 Institute. CULS offers over 170 accredited study programmes at BSc, MSc and PhD levels (in 9 BSc, 20 MSc and 18 PhD programmes the language of instruction is English).
The university has 1 700 employees, of which more than 700 are Professors or Associate Professors. Since 2007 the Czech University of Life Sciences is member of the Euroleague for Life Sciences. Faculty of Engineering is an integral part of CULS and its staffs have been involved in the field of education, science and research, expertise and consultancy activities. The Faculty has ten departments, several laboratories, and central development workshops. The Faculty of Engineering has signed more than 40 international agreements with European universities, and the ECTS (European Credit Transfer System) applied by CULS provides acceptable conditions for student mobility. A part of the course can thereby be taken at one of the recommended universities abroad. Partaking in foreign placements and practical training abroad is also possible if based on a relevant construction of the student’s individual study plan.
