Education and machine design since 1901


Institute of Machine and Industrial Design has a long history dating back to 1901. At that time Leopold Grimm was named a full professor of Machine Elements Design and Machine Design I at newly established Czech Technical University in Brno. Czech Technical University was established in 1899 as a result of the demand of the Czech people for an own university where education would be provided in Czech language. The beginnings were humble. Lack of facilities, funds, professors and students was compensated by enthusiasm. In the course of time, the Institute has been renamed and changed its location for several times. Seven directors have been in charge and they all contributed to the fact that the Institute of Machine and Industrial Design is now well-known and respected engineering school.
