Industry Council

The Industry Council is an advisory body to the Dean and meets regularly 3 or 4 times a year. The purpose of the Industry Council is to bring new stimuli to the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering to achieve mutual synergy. Based on the suggestions of the Industry Council and the following additional negotiations, study programmes are modified to reflect the current needs of industrial practice. Although we know today that we need to prepare our students for future professions that are as yet unknown, the Faculty strives to implement current changes in the industrial environment into teaching through suggestions from the Industry Council.

The members of the Industry Council are the Rector of the University of West Bohemia, the management of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, representatives of the Pilsen Region and, above all, company executives, technical directors and human resources managers.

In the spring meeting of the Industry Council, principals or representatives of partner secondary schools of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering are also regularly invited. At this meeting there is a mutual synergy between the industrial sphere, the region and secondary schools and universities.
