Study in the English language
The Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology of the Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava (FEI STU) is a diverse, cosmopolitan community. While 90 % of the 2500 students come from Slovakia, the others come from about 40 countries beyond the borders of Slovakia. In our study programme in the English language, nearly 50 teachers and scholars bring to our students the knowledge and experience they have gained from research at the world´s finest universities. Professors and other experts in their fields bring the most current knowledge and technology to their classrooms. Study programmes are completely equivalent to the same programmes given in the Slovak language.
Role and mission
The Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology as a segment of STU is responsible for offering a wide range of Bc., MSc. and Ph.D. programmes.
The policy of the Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava that discrimination against any individual for reason of race,
FEI STU operates on a semester system. The first (fall) semester begins in September and ends in December. The second (spring) semester begins in February (after the examination period) and ends in May.
Bachelor´s programme lasts three years, and MSc.
After completion bachelor´s programme, a student may enter our Master (Engineer) study. The significant part of courses is optional. This study gives to students a deep contemporary theoretical knowledge and practical skills in the field. The study is finished by the second State Examination which consists of the defending of the Diploma thesis and the oral State Examination. Courses are provided in Slovak/English language.

The Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology as a part of the Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava offers 16 general programmes leading to the degree of Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.):
General preparatory requirements
Students holding the M.S. degree (or its equivalent from a recognized engineering school or having substantially completed the requirements) for that degree may apply for admission to the unified Ph.D. programme in Engineering. Admission to the Ph.D. programme is depending upon academic performance at both undergraduate and graduate levels. Those with the M.S. degree in other disciplines may be required to eliminate prerequisite deficiencies. These courses (or exams only) are extra charged. Graduates of foreign universities must submit scores for evaluation before admission.
Requirements for the degree of doctor of philosophy
The doctoral programme should be reasonably compact, continuous, and coherent, and such that a substantial portion is in fact done at and under close supervision by the best faculties of our Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology.
When a student has completed all his/her preparatory programme, he/she must pass a comprehensive examination. This is an investigation of the student's breadth of understanding of the field of knowledge of which his/her special subject is a part. A short written report in major and minor or related fields with Summary of possible Dissertation work must be submitted too.
A minimum of two full years of preparatory work on a dissertation is normally required to complete a programme for the degree of Doctor of Philosophy. Neither the courses
The dissertation is of no fixed length. It should treat a subject from the candidate´s special field approved by the supervisory committee. It should show the technical mastery of his/her field and advance or modify former knowledge, i.e., it should treat new material, or find new results, or draw new conclusions, or it should interpret old material in a new light. The dissertation is passed by of three referees.
The time limit on granting the Ph.D. degree is three years from the time of registration at FEI STU.
Tuition and fee rates are subject to change at the direction of the Board of the University. The effective rates for the next academic year are 6500 EUR per year. Board and lodging are not included and is completely left to the applicant. Unfortunately, there is no financial aid available now.
