The Past and the Present of the Institute of Chemical Technology, Prague


The Institute of Chemical Technology (ICT), Prague is a . university providing education and . scientific research, development and . activities. The ICT Prague is known for both the . and broadness of its educational and research activities in almost all . of chemistry, chemical engineering, food chemistry and technology, biochemistry, refining, water-treatment, power and biological sciences and technologies, as well as environmental protection, materials sciences and other chemistry-based fields of study.

The ICT Prague turned out a number of . chemists, among them Professor Otto Wichterle, the inventor of soft contact lenses in the 1950s. Vladimír Prelog, professor at the ETH Zürich who won the Nobel Prize for Chemistry in 1975, graduated from the School of Chemical Technology in 1928, and he gained his PhD . there several years later.

The ICT Prague consists of four faculties, Faculty of Chemical Technology, Faculty of Environmental Technology, Faculty of Food and Biochemical Technology, Faculty of Chemical Engineering, and . accommodating the needs of all ICT Faculties.

The ICT Prague . comprises almost 780 ., including about 40 professors, 100 associate professors, and 280 assistant professors and assistants. The Faculties of the ICT are accredited to provide three-year Bachelor programmes, . two-year Master programmes (ending with the award of the academic title Engineer), and PhD programmes. The total . at the ICT Prague is about 2,500 Master and Bachelor students and more than 600 PhD students.

The ICT Prague operates a . equipped Central Library, which contains more than 100,000 volumes of books, handbooks, encyclopaedias, periodicals and other publications. The Library subscribes to some 300 professional periodicals and has an electronic access to scientific journals.

Several pieces of . and most up-to-date scientific equipment are located in the Central Laboratories, which . services to all Faculties in implementing scientific projects as well as in teaching postgraduate students.
