Pursuant to sec. 8 of the Regulation of the Dean concerning bachelor and follow up master study programs at the Czech Technical University in Prague – Faculty of Biomedical Engineering the students of the bachelor study program are obliged to select the theme of their bachelor thesis by the end of January because there is a requisite of continuity with the semestral project and thus it is postponed until the end of January.

Thus, for the academic year 2019/20, the assignment of the topic of the bachelor thesis has to be chosen by the student from 23. 9. 2019 to 31. 1. 2020!

Submission of the bachelor thesis (applies to the revised, supplemented or new BT due to failed FSE in the academic year 2018/2019): by 14. 5. 2020 electronic form in the Projects system by 12.00 am, bound and printed form by 3.00 pm.

Submission of the revised bachelor thesis: (also applies to the revised, supplemented or new BT due to failed FSE in June 2020):  by 13. 8. 2020 electronic form in the Projects system by 12.00 am and bound and printed form by 3.00 pm.

Where to submit: Bachelor study branch Biomedical Technician - room number B - 536 (KOKOS building).

By 14. 4. 2020 3.00 pm at the latest, you can submit an application to the Dean of the faculty to cancel the application to the final state examinations with the opinion of the supervisor of the thesis, guarantor of the study branch (or his deputy) and the head of the supervising department stating a serious reason.

A student is obliged to submit the bachelor thesis by the deadlines given by the schedule for the respective academic year of the FBME. Should a student fail to submit the bachelor thesis timely, with no apology, or his/her apology is not accepted, the student is graded “F” (failed). The apology is to be submitted to the Dean of the faculty together with the opinion of the head of the department supervising the respective study branch and the thesis supervisor.

A student enrols the bachelor thesis as a subject in a semester, in which he/she is supposed to graduate. An assessment for the bachelor thesis, which meets all the formal requirements, is granted by the supervisor of the thesis and in exceptional cases, (e.g. an absence due to an illness, business trip, and in case of external supervisors) by the guarantor of the study field, his deputy, head of the department supervising the study field, or his deputy). This assessment must be recorded in KOS and only then, the secretary of the relevant department can accept the bachelor thesis. The rule applies that in case of external supervisors the assessment has to be recorded in KOS by the secretary of the relevant department. In case of the absence of the supervisor (extern), or a failure to receive the opinion, the head of the relevant department or his deputy assess the formal requirements pursuant to which the assessment is granted or not granted. Simultaneously, there is a valid principle that the level of elaboration must not be conditioned by granting or non-granting of the assessment. The level of formal elaboration is assessed solely upon the opinions of the supervisor and the reviewer. A student, who was granted “F” in both opinions, can defend such a thesis.

Pursuant to article 7 of the Regulation of the Dean concerning bachelor and follow up master study programs at the Czech Technical University, Faculty of Biomedical Engineering (FBME) the final state examination (FSE) consists of the following: defence of the bachelor thesis in case of a bachelor study program or defence of a master thesis in case of a master study program. There is also the oral examination from the thematic areas of the theoretical background and the profile subjects of the branch studied.

The Dean of FBME declares the topics, based on the proposal of the head of the department supervising the given study branch, that will be published at by the end of the tutorial part of a semester preceding the FCEs the latest.

The student takes the examination from two, three, or four thematic areas, according to the studied branch (or rather a specialisation or a program, which is not divided into branches or specialisations). In case of the possibility to select the topics, the student is obliged to do so through KOS.

A student enrols for FSEs through KOS during the enrolment to the semester, in which the FSEs take place, (manual here) through KOS by 14. 2. 2020 at the latest – after this date the access to KOS will be automatically blocked.

Both the date of the FSE and the topics (if the field of study allows that – otherwise each line offers only one possibility) can be selected in the application form.

Some information about KOS:

  • Select your topics for the FSE (2, 3 or 4 according to the field of study).
  • Select a date of the FSE and confirm it by „Enroll“ at the right end of the relevant line.

You must close all study obligations in KOS. No result must be missing in KOS in order to close the studies. (4. 6. 2020).

A few comments to KOS:

Open the folder „Other" – „Inspection of the study plan”. Check of fulfilment of the study plan is run automatically. If the check runs smoothly, it is possible to close the plan and confirm it by the button „ Inspection of the study plan “. In case the check did not run successfully, the button does not even appear and it is possible to find the reason (usually missing grade from some subject). The check of the fulfilment of the study plan can be run at any time and for an unlimited number of times.
