Join the testing of Open-Cube, an alternative control cube for learning robotics and programming in (Micro)Python

Open-Cube is a new platform based on the popular Raspberry Pi PICO. It aims to replace the now hard to find or worn out LEGO Mindstorms that have been used so far in the Robots course or in various robotics competitions. It supports sensors and motors from both the NXT and EV3 kits, as well as self-developed sensors such as the laser rangefinder. Open-Cube is meant to be an open platform with available HW and FW source files that anyone can build and possibly contribute their own ideas to its development.

FEL ČVUT partnerem Game Developers Session (GDS) 2023

We are pleased to announce that the Faculty of Electrical Engineering of CTU has become a partner of the Game Developers Session (GDS), which will take place on 8th and 9th December at the Prague Congress Centre.

Silver for Pavlina Kouteckou in the IT SPY 2023 competition! She impressed the jury with her proposal for better planning of operations

In the prestigious IT SPY competition, the graduate of the Open Informatics programme of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering of CTU, Ing. Pavlína Koutecká, under the guidance of Associate Professor Přemysl Šůcha from the Department of Control Engineering, proposed possibilities for better planning of surgical interventions in hospitals. Using the branch-and-price method accelerated by machine learning, her solution will bring significant savings in time and resources. The jury awarded Pavlína Koutecká's work with 2nd place. 

Interview with Jiří Zemánek and Krištof Pučejdel: Our students would not be lost at MIT

Thanks to a Fulbright-Masaryk Scholarship, educator and popularizer of playful science Jiří Zemánek spent the 2019/2020 academic year at MIT. After three years, he returned to the world's top-ranked technological university according to the QS ranking, accompanied by his colleague Kristof Pučejdl and two master's students. We had the following conversation with the two researchers from the Department of Control Engineering at the FEL CTU about their work trip, inspirations for their own research in the field of digital materials, as well as the differences between their students and those at MIT.

Are you a student of BIO? Come to the Winter Biomedical Day!

The traditional Winter Biomedical Day will take place on 5 December at 17:00 as part of the St. Nicholas Day celebrations. All students, teachers and those interested in the BIO field are hereby invited to a pleasant informal meeting. 

Students of the BIO programme visited the MEDICA Trade Fair

Students in the final year of the Master's programme in Medical Electronics and Bioinformatics took a three-day excursion to RWTH Aachen and the MEDICA Trade Fair in Düsseldorf last week.

An OI student suggested how to better plan interventions in hospitals. Her thesis is in the final of IT SPY 2023

Graduate of the OI Master's program, Ing. Pavlína Koutecká, advanced to the finals of IT SPY, a prestigious competition of Czech and Slovak universities for the best diploma thesis in the field of computer science and information technology. The jury was impressed by her thesis on planning surgical procedures using a branch-and-price method accelerated by machine learning.

The Dean's Prize for the prestigious dissertation was awarded to Ing. Tomáš Dlask, Ing. David Futschik and Ing. Erik Derner

On 8 November, the Dean of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering of the Czech Technical University in Prague awarded the Dean's Prize for a prestigious dissertation. A total of three researchers received the award in 2023.

Elections to the AS FEL and AS CTU will take place on 14 and 15 November 2023

According to the Election Regulations of the AS FEL and AS CTU, half of the student senators will be replaced. Therefore, 5 new senators will be elected to the AS FEL and 1 new senator to the AS CTU for the term from 1.1.2024 to 31.12.2025.

FEL CTU introduced a laboratory for correlative microscopy for 20 million crowns. It will be used for semiconductor research and development of new drugs

The Faculty of Electrical Engineering of CTU (FEL) inaugurated the Reference Laboratory for Correlation Microscopy, which will be used for research purposes and teaching. The new laboratory, worth CZK 20 million, combines technologies and instruments whose configuration is unique not only in the Czech Republic but also in the European Union. Its capabilities will benefit both researchers from the Department of Physics of the CTU Faculty of Physics, under which it falls, as well as doctoral, master's and bachelor's degree students.

46. Meeting with music: the human voice - the most beautiful instrument

Please accept our cordial invitation to the 46th edition. Meeting with music, which will take place on 27 November 2023 at 18:30. This time the programme includes a vocal performance by soprano Karolina Cingrošová with piano accompaniment by Luboš Pribyl. 

Faculty of Electrical Engineering at AI 4 ALL presents Robops as an intelligent cleaner and juggling with singing balls

Although the AI Days under the auspices of the non-profit initiative run in four cities for a total of four weeks, one of their Prague culminations will take place on 3 November at the Prague City Library. The day-long program, called AI 4 ALL, will introduce the connection between AI and the real world in the fields of agriculture, art, mobility or religion through short lectures. Participants of all ages will be able to create visual or textual works with expert guidance, relax under the guidance of AI, converse with AI experts, explore autonomous vehicles or interact with voice assistants.

The RaDron will help detect radioactivity detections. An action demonstration of the new technology took place at ÚJV Řež.

The RaDron will help detect radioactivity detections. An action demonstration of the new technology took place at ÚJV Řež.
The results of the RaDron research project represent a promising extension of radiation safety technologies. An advanced autonomous drone from the Faculty of Electrical Engineering of the Czech Technical University, equipped with unique particle detectors from the Prague-based company ADVACAM, will enable effective detection of sources of radioactivity, including moving ones. In the future, the new method of localization may also facilitate the work of the specialized team of the Řež Nuclear Power Plant, which deals with the discovery of sources of ionizing radiation. The partners presented the results of the project on Thursday 26 October in Řež. The programme included a dynamic demonstration of finding the source of radioactivity and a simulation of the action of the ÚJV Řež interception team.
