Masaryk Institute of Advanced Studies

The Masaryk Institute of Advanced Studies (MIAS) was established at the Czech Technical University in Prague (CTU) in 1992. Alongside the eight Engineering Faculties of CTU (Mechanical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Power Engineering, Nuclear Science, Architecture, Transportation, Biomedical Engineering, Information Technology) and in close cooperation with them, it has focused primarily on interdisciplinary and complementary disciplines, including economics, management studies, language studies, regional development, engineering pedagogy and history.

Since inception, it has granted graduates corresponding undergraduate and graduate degrees. From 1994 through 2014, a total of 678 students also graduated from a joint MBA program with Sheffield Hallam University.

Over 100 in-house teaching and research staff supplemented by a number of visiting lecturers, supervisors and professional consultants currently teach 800 students in Degree Programs at the Masaryk Institute of Advanced Studies. Hundreds of participants also attend professional, qualification and language courses and seminars. Faculty participate in research projects, both domestic and international, and provide advisory services and training programs for firms, professional bodies and public agencies.

Internationalization involves preparatory courses in English, as well as Czech for foreigners, tailor-made for foreign students aspiring to enrol at CTU or other Czech Universities. Rigorous foreign language training traverses the whole undergraduate curriculum.


The Masaryk Institute of Advanced Studies has offices and classrooms in its own building within the campus of the Czech Technical University, located in the urban district of Prague 6 – Dejvice. This gives a convenient access to most CTU premises, including its modern library or sports compound, to numerous local pubs and restaurants, as well as to downtown Prague.
