Since the academic year 2020/2021, the educational programs of undergraduate and graduate students of the FES have moved to a new model of student project work. An obligatory element of the curriculum for undergraduate and graduate students of all years of study is the Project, which includes project work, accompanied by a research project seminar, as well as by writing course and diploma papers. Projects bring together undergraduate and graduate students from different years of study working on similar topics.

Dates for pay programs:
Students study the list of projects available and can submit exactly one application for the project.
Supervisors can see and review the first list of applications. Students cannot submit applications during this day.
Students submit up to three simultaneous applications for the projects, while you review these applications. During the whole application period, students have an opportunity to edit their applications and to change selected projects, until the application is approved by a supervisor. Once one of these applications is accepted by the supervisor, then the student is enrolled in the project, and the remaining applications are cancelled.
Those students who were not enrolled in any of the projects during the first phase will submit up to five applications for projects with free places and rank the projects in order of priority. After that, an algorithm will distribute students among the projects, taking into account the number of applications for a given project, students' priorities, and their ratings/GPA (if the number of applicants exceeds the number of remaining places).
Those students, who for some reason will not be enrolled in any of the projects, but have participated in all stages of the project selection procedure, will be assigned a project later.
If a student got an unsatisfactory grade, he/she must contact the supervisor and get the task as soon as possible.
Supervisors must assign grades for the first retake
Supervisors must assign grades for the second retake (commission)
If a student wants to change a project, he/she needs to go to the FES Project system, choose "All projects", select the project he/she likes, click on its name and submit a transfer request through the special box. When both supervisors (current and future) accept student's requst, the project will be changed.
Students without a project can submit only 1 application through the FES Project system, but the supervisor may either agree or refuse, or simply not see the application. Therefore, it is necessary to contact the supervisor of the project you are interested in via mail before submitting the application.
To get information about the students currently enrolled in a project, go to "My Projects", select the necessary project (by clicking on the project name) and open the "Students" section. Here you can also download all the information in a single Excel file (blue "xlsx" button in the upper right corner). Since not all students actively use their corporate emails, some students have an additional email written in this list.
This is a common thing that some students, who are not involved in any project, appear during the academic year. These may be students who have transferred from other universities or faculties, some of them may have missed a year for health reasons or due to exchange programmes. These students can submit one application for the project at any time, you will see this application in the "My Applications" tab (the application will immediately turn red when it is submitted). Although we advise students to talk to the project leader before applying, not everyone follows this advice.
Students, who have already signed up for the System, may apply to transfer to another project before the end of the second module (end of December). The application is considered approved and the student is transferred to a new project only if this application has been accepted by both current project leader and new project leader. All transfer applications can be seen in the "Transfer Requests" tab, which is highlighted in red if you have at least one application that has not been approved yet
To schedule a new project meeting with students through the system, go to "My Projects", select the necessary project (by clicking on the project name), open the "Announcements" section and click on "Add Meeting Announcement". In a meeting announcement, you can specify the topic of the meeting, its time and place (either the classroom or a Zoom / MS Teams link) and other necessary additional information. After an announcement is published, all students from the project receive an email notification of a new meeting appointment.
To publish a message to students through the system, go to "My Projects", select the necessary project (by clicking on the project name), open the "Announcements" section and click on "Add New Message". For a message, you can allow comments from project participants, if any feedback from students is needed. After a message is published, all students from the project receive an email notification
