The mission of the High School of Electrical Engineering, a public school with a long tradition, is to provide its students with both knowledge and skills in the specialised areas of electronics, automation and information technology. Students aged 15- 19 complete their four-year studies with the Maturity School Leaving Exam (equivalent to A-levels), a prerequisite for enrolling at a university. Studies are suitable for both genders; nevertheless, boys are in the majority. Lessons are conducted in the Czech language.


FIELDS OF STUDIES

Electrical Engineering – from the 3rd school-year, the studies focus intensively on control systems, information and communication systems and medical apparatus.

Information Technology - from the 3rd school-year, the studies are dedicated to programming, designing of web applications, CAD systems, programming of microcontrollers, and/or systems and networks administration.

Technical Lyceum – from the very first year, the studies focus on programming and/or industrial design.


FOREIGN LANGUAGES

English or German represent the major offering of foreign languages for students to choose one they have to study. Technical Lyceum students are requested to study two foreign languages; English is obligatory with German or Russian as a vocational one. In addition, curricula of Information Technology branch and Technical Lyceum involve a specialised subject called English in Information Technology.


SCHOOL-LEAVERS’ PLACEMENT IN INDUSTRY

High school leavers find jobs as technicians in companies dealing with electrotechnical or diagnostic production programmes. They can work as network administrators, system programmers, as electrical appliances service technicians or can become engineers in medical technology departments of health centres, etc.

Technical Lyceum leavers can embrace their careers in design or graphical studios. A signifiant number of school-leavers continue their studies at Technical universities.


SPECIALIZED OFFERING OF PROGRAMMES

CISCO Academy
CISCO Academy

Students, especially those involved in Information Technology studies, are offered an opportunity to participate in the CISCO Networking Academy Programme and thus there is a chance to gain:

  • CISCO IT Essentials Certificate to prove their knowledge and skills in the area of problem diagnosing and troubleshooting while maintaining PCs’ hardware, operating systems and peripherals.
  • So called CCNA Exploration Certificate Programme is tightly linked with competences of computer network designing, establishing and administration.

The prior aim of this programme is to train specialists in the area of computer networks who are needed world-wide.


ECDL (European Computer Driving Licence)

European Computer Driving Licence, highly regarded world-wide, is an objective and standardised method of computer literacy testing.

Students’ abilities to use basics of Information and Communication Technologies are tested and evaluated based on practical tests that correspond to the required level of knowledge stated by ECDL Syllabus.

Successful passing of the tests enables the students to obtain the ECDL Certificate that has got an international validity.

The testing procedure is organized in a certificated classroom in the school.


Microsoft Dream Spark (formally MSDN AA) (formally MSDN AA)

Software can be used exclusively for study and non-commercial purposes. The latest version of Windows Systems (Windows7/Professional) and many others are provided nowadays.


Regulation on Electrotechnical Qualifications

School leavers from the Electrical Engineering specialisation, after retesting, can obtain the proof of qualifications in accord with Regulation num. 50/78 Sb/Digest of Laws.


eTwinning

The school has also joined an international programme of project cooperation called eTwinning. Students at all study levels are involved in a variety of different educational projects the realization of which is based on mutual cooperation with other European schools.

Knowledge of foreign languages (as well as IT skills) is fully exploited to meet the prior targets of the cooperation: to identify the multicultural character of Europe as well as to develop team working. All activities are run in the safe environment of Twinspace.

The international project cooperation is supposed to support students’ knowledge of foreign languages, as well as, to help significantly in the process of implantation of modern and more attractive teaching methods in the area of foreign languages studies.
