about the specialization

The specialization Metal and Jewellery Design is based on craft methods and procedures of metal processing. The Bachelor's Degree Study Program in this field develops the tradition of thorough mastery of classical approaches in the search for new methods and technologies in the context of the development of science and technology. On this basis, the creative potential of students towards the creative use of acquired skills is cultivated. The specialization follows contemporary trends of art in our country and abroad so as to create a framework based on current changes in lifestyle. Teaching is based on complex art training. Jewellery is taught as a specific art medium with rich expressive resources, inspiration and a possibility to use the full range of traditional and non-traditional materials. Attention is also paid to medal objects − plaques, medals and insignia.

Graduates of the Metal and Jewellery Design specialization will be able to design and carry out tasks within their field. Jewellery includes virtually all materials (including, for example, piercing) and technology (silversmithing, goldsmithing, electro-forming, etc.). Graduates will master the basic technologies associated with metal (plumbing, welding, metalwork, laser cutting, grinding, etc.); they will be able to design cutlery, ballpoint pens, seating furniture, railing, free sculptures, bells, children's climbing frames, etc.

The best semester works, semester projects and Bachelor theses can be regularly exhibited in the Studio’s gallery Galerie meta//ll/um and in two UWB galleries in Pilsen under the FUD management, and also in exhibition spaces outside the city of Pilsen. Students of both specializations participate in design competitions abroad and in the Czech Republic. Students may do part of their study or take internships abroad. An obvious part of the study is the involvement of students, under the expert guidance of teachers, in many projects and art events; students can attend various workshops and plein air courses at the UWB training center at Nečtiny Castle or abroad.

Graduates of these two specializations can enter directly into practice as employees of an institution or as independent artists in their field. They can complete a follow-up Master's Degree Study Program with an educational focus and then teach at schools of all levels and at extra-curricular facilities of various types.

The most talented graduates can meet the conditions for admission and continue the study of their field in the respective Master's Degree Study Program at the FUD, or continue their studies at another UWB faculty, at another university in the Czech Republic or abroad.

entrance examinations for the above specializations

The entrance aptitude examination usually takes place in the first week of January, consists of two parts and lasts about 4 days. The first part evaluates the level of the candidate’s portfolio submitted (the applicant chooses their portfolio to create the broadest possible information about their artistic range).
