CTP and the Faculty of Civil Engineering from the Brno University of Technology have entered a five-year partnership and will jointly work to increase interest in construction subjects and support young talents, the developer announced.

CTP has become the lead partner of the Faculty of Civil Engineering of Brno University of Technology for the next five years. Within the framework of cooperation, the developer will share their experience and innovative approach to creating modern industrial parks and business centres with students. Both parties want to increase the interest of students in construction subjects and at the same time support young talents, whom CTP wants to offer opportunities to practically apply their theoretical knowledge while still studying. The partnership agreement has been signed by David Chládek, Country Head of the CTP Czech Republic, and Rostislav Drochytka, Dean of the Faculty of Civil Engineering (BUT).

“I truly appreciate this cooperation, both professionally and personally, and I am very happy it has come to fruition. I have a degree in civil engineering and have been working in this field for a long time. I, therefore, believe that civil engineering offers young people a wide range of areas to study and, above all, great job and self-fulfilment prospects. I often encounter a shortage of people in the field, while the amount of work and number of orders are constantly increasing. The construction industry is not only varied but also a promising field with a view to the future, both about the range of construction jobs and disciplines, and about the constant development in the field of construction materials, working methods, technologies and, last but not least, the application of IT. I am convinced that it is essential to invest in the young generation that will shape the future of the entire construction sector, which is why we at CTP have decided to support this area of education, not only financially but also practically. I believe that this is the way to improve the quality of education, to bring it closer to reality and to gradually attract more young talents into the field,” emphasized David Chládek, Country Head of CTP Czech Republic.

As part of the long-term cooperation, the developer wants to allow students to test their theoretical knowledge in the real environment of the development company, through internships or shadowing of selected CTP employees. In addition, CTP experts will pass on their extensive experience to students during lectures and excursions in industrial CTParks in various development phases, from design, construction and approvals to leasing and building management. The lead partner will also help students in selecting and preparing the topics for their thesis, to ensure they have a real impact in practice. The best theses can even receive a financial bonus. Equally important is the active involvement of the CTP in the faculty´s planned events.

“I am pleased that we have secured such an important partner of our faculty, which can offer our students a truly diverse range of knowledge and experience, thanks to CTP’s active role in the fields of industrial, office and residential development, with many innovative ideas that they are not afraid to implement. Therefore, I believe that this cooperation will bring not only a wealth of opportunities for students and the entire faculty but the CTP Czech Republic.
