The students from the Institute of Aerospace Engineering formed a team named BUT Chicken wings. The team participated in several international competitions, e.g. Air Cargo Challenge.

Pneumobil - students' project

The pneumobil is a vehicle driven by compressed air. The students from the Institute of Machine and Industrial Design, FME BUT are constructing their pneumobil to take part in an international competion.

An excellent international research team is to commence research at the NETME Centre

An international research team supervised by Professor Jiri Klemes is starting a new project called Sustainable Process Integration Laboratory (SPIL) at the NETME Centre.

Multimodal Holographic Microscope

A team of scientists from FME have designed a unique multimodal holographic microscope, which makes it possible to observe living cells without using contrast agent.

Victor Kaplan’s Department of Hydraulic Machines FME BUT introduced unique turbine

Scientists from Victor Kaplan´s Department of Hydraulic Machines FME BUT designed a worldwide unique two-stage swirl turbine in a cascade arrangement.


The Institute of Aerospace Engineering was part of an ambitious project 7RP EU SPARTAN from 2011 to 2014. The goal was to develop a hybrid, highly throttleable rocket engine (H2O2 / paraffin) and test it in an interplanetary probe demonstrator.


Scientists from the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, BUT have developed an airplane with electric engine VUT 051 RAY, which had its first take off in August 2014.

Looking back at this season of Formula Dragon 3

The students' racing team TU Brno Racing completed this year's racing season at the event Formula Student Hungary which took place from 22 to 25 August 2013 in Hungary near Győr.
