Even at Czech schools are emerging disciplines, whose instruction is not available in Czech, but in the English language. One such are also at the Brno University of Technology. This is the English equivalent of building. With his student Vit Janicek (21) we talked about the pitfalls of foreign language studies as well as the field itself.
** Hey Vito, can you imagine a little discipline, which studies? ** Branch called Civil Engineering, is actually an offshoot of an English classic of buildings. Each semester you choose one subject in Czech, we do not have to pay tuition fees. Is it then so that we study in Czech with some subjects in English, although we actually now all in English. Branch deals with the design and construction design for buildings. Well design in terms of functionality not aesthetics. Designs the beams, girders learn to count, you could calculate that if the building falls. In the first year we have two semesters of business management. This is because then we want to have to be firm and also due to field management of buildings. There will be counting how much they will cost house.
** You were talking about that have some branches in Czech, you do not have to pay tuition. What is it? ** For a complete teaching English to pay tuition, it is somehow the law. If one wants to study in English, so it's quite a Czech student, „bat“. That's what made this style, it's like in Czech with English teaching.
** Do you or did you have with such a flood of English have trouble, you had to be tutor? ** When a person wants to study this subject in English, must meet the entrance test in English. Then he counted the test grades from the tests and the test was not done during the study. This vyselektují those who would be managed and who is not. But from the beginning it was quite Perná, before one becomes accustomed to it pours out the technical terms. With that difficulty is also how each subject. The biggest problem they do objects that we did not need the high school, such as mechanics or statistics.
** You have to communicate in English with teachers? ** In the hours to speak English, and after an hour you can go now to ask Czech, so this is not a problem. Can you speak Czech in office hours.
** How it reacts to your surroundings when you tell them what are you studying? ** First, it comes to some unnecessary and most importantly, that they do not unnecessarily complicated.
** You see that studying in English, an advantage? ** First, learn the English terms, so it might not be such a problem to apply abroad, while at the same level of expertise is communicating in English. Then there is the possibility to travel to those areas of England receive preference when they want to go on Erasmus.
** They will be missing training Czech terminology in your future career? ** Rather, the problem is to find materials to study English, can not get too much, and if anything, they're pretty professional books. The teacher will tell us more easily and directly to us to recommend specific materials. Czech terminology you dohledávám retrospectively, because tests can be bilingual. Or sometimes, when the teacher wants to know something and asks normally in Czech. Like in physics, one must look for the names of variables in Czech.
** What can be the title of Civil Engineering do? ** After studying one must have at least four years experience in the field, so that he could not go to an authorization test. There you have to defend a project or projects, like the doctors attestation. In essence, a stamp that allows you to run a separate activity in the field. Otherwise I would not be put on building your project office. Then you can start designing a company associated with such realizations of buildings or you can create projects to go into some larger companies.
** Have you thought already about where you want to work? What You most interested in the field? ** I would go directly to the buildings. Two years are all on the field joint and then it divides the land, transport, water and other structures. Structural engineering is the broadest scope, has the highest content of what you know then. Although this can not propose to be bridges and roads, but houses, reconstruction of houses and skyscrapers, and still does.
** Do you have a dream building for whose realization would you like to share? ** Yeah. I would like to build his own house, a little bigger house with a garden atrium, or resting room in the atrium. The rooms would be at different levels above ground. Or I might like to try to work with someone on a larger project, something that defined as an opera in Sydney. Not strictly a house for living, but it should have a value in terms of architecture and in terms of innovative design. Maybe even collaborate with research, but rather in the sense that their results would apply in practice.
** Would you also work abroad? ** I thought that I would be tried in England, but it's still pretty far away. I have before me almost four years, so God knows what work out. Rather, I thought that if I went to school much, so I tried a higher title, but you have to do much to publish. I left the English as a loophole, though nothing in the Czech Republic and abroad, yes. It is certainly a difference, how to build in the Czech Republic and abroad as I take it as a possibility.
** Why did you decide to initiate this study? ** Then I chose English, just because I wanted to try, come to me a letter that I received and if you do not want the entrance test in English. And I chose stavárnu also because my father does stavařinu. I wanted to try and architecture, but it did not work. In addition, I enjoy math and physics, and here it is in applied form.
** English taught study encourages the belief that it does not move to more foreign students. It's some truth? ** We've got a permanent foreign student from China, but otherwise there are mostly just people from Erasmus, so they alternate each semester. There are people from Spain, Turkey, from England, we had someone there from Sweden, so it varies from two to twenty students in our circle. The circle is basically like a study group.
** Have you ever regretted it, how did you decide? Thinking about another field? ** At the beginning of the first semester and second semester, I regret it, but I would not change. We have a stable bunch of people and it's such an intimate atmosphere that there are not 200 other people, but 30, so we are more like a class in high school.
** What is the mortality on the field, how many qualified for the second year? ** On the English quite small, what I heard, but the overall mortality stavárně is huge when you take the board from 1600 to 1800 but the students were so vystuduje 500th
** What would you recommend to those who would like to study Civil Engineering? What would you do? ** Submit your application to stavárnu and have good results in English in high school, the examination in English is the second such graduation. And not to worry the English and that they do not understand everything the first day.
