Report from the KIT Diploma Seminar – 2022


The traditional Diploma Seminar – scientific research workshop KIT (24th year), organized by the Department of Information Technologies PEF ČZU in Prague, was held on February 24, 2022 for the second year in a remote mode via video conferences due to the expected bad pandemic situation. The scientific seminar is attended annually by master's degree students who submit a diploma thesis in the current calendar year.

  This year, due to the expected high participation of students, negotiations took place in five committees composed of members of the department and external experts. Each committee selected and awarded the three best works based on predetermined evaluation rules. Within the individual sections, high-quality works in the first three places were awarded diplomas. Several students received a "yellow card", which meant consulting with the thesis supervisor about finalizing the thesis or postponing the SZZ, and one student received a "red card", which meant postponing the SZZ. At the seminar, they presented and defended their work as a whole 70 graduates of the department. One commission was again conceived as an English one, which was primarily intended for students of study programs taught in English. A total of 22 members of the department and representatives of practice worked and evaluated in the committees. The event has been evaluated very positively by students for a long time, especially for the "presentation and defense in a clean manner" and the opportunity to consult and discuss the solved issue directly with experts from the department, practice and colleagues from various fields of study. The department is looking forward to the fact that, after a two-year hiatus, the next year will already be held in the premises of the Všeradice Castle Court on the same date, i.e. February 23, 2023. The department would like to take this opportunity to thank all the members of the individual committees, especially the external experts, who actively participated in this event .
