Topics you can study at KEV
Students can complete a final project at the Department in the Bachelor's degree (Framework topics - cz language)
or a thesis in the follow-up Master's degree. During your studies, you can collaborate with the Department on projects within your courses:
A list of current projects you can join can be found in the list of projects for students - the list of projects for students - HERE (cz language).
At any time during your studies, it is possible to join our team - you can collaborate on the announced topic or come up with your own project. It is possible to continue working on projects during your Ph.D. studies.
We are dealing with electric means of transport from the smallest, such as electric scooters and motorbikes, through electric cars and go-karts, to large means of transportation, such as electric buses, trolleybuses, trams and locomotives, ships, and aircraft.
We also deal with the main powertrain components for motorsport (Formula Student, SuperKart, WRC) and with traffic simulators, modeling, planning, and traffic management.

An important area of our activities is mechatronics, robotics, and industrial automation, where we focus on individual components and control of robots, special manipulators, machine tools, production equipment, and lines.

We focus on power electronic technologies in power transmission and distribution, smart grids, and the efficient use of renewable energy. We design new technologies for power and heat generation. In the area of transformations, we also deal with specialized technologies for electric heat or wireless transmission, etc.

Electrical machinery and other equipment are integral to almost any more complex plant or technology. At the Department, we are dealing with their design, modelling, construction, and testing.

The operation of electrical equipment requires an understanding of the basic principles of its behavior and the derivation of a mathematical description. Historically, these simplified models and control strategies have been designed by humans based on experience and experimentation. Nowadays, so much data and fast simulators are available that it is possible to use artificial intelligence and machine learning methods to find a more accurate model and control strategy. These methods can be used to improve the design of electrical equipment.

The Student Formula is an international competition organized by SAE International with a tradition dating back to 1979, with more than 600 universities currently participating. In the past, Formula SAU http://uwbracing.cz/ has achieved impressive results from many races in the internal combustion engine category. Now the students are preparing a formula with an electric drive powered by a traction battery. In our Department, you will learn more about the design of electric motors, inverters, traction batteries including BMS, and other accompanying electronics.
- A project that you can get involved in right away.
- Areas of possible collaboration:
- design and manufacture of electronics,
- unit programming, communication and visualization,
- preparation of documentation and participation in races.
- It is not important what skills you have now, but which you want to acquire during your studies.
