BUT expands cooperation with Cracow University of Technology
„As a part of a successful partnership with Cracow University of Technology (CUT), Faculty of Mechanical Engineering Brno University of Technology has decided to deepen its existing cooperation and signed a framework agreement on 18 January on international cooperation in the implementation of doctoral studies with a jointly supervised doctoral thesis. The doctoral student will thus receive two thesis supervisors, one from the BUT and the other from CUT.
