In accordance with legislation in force and considering the anticipated time limiting of military service the students are also prepared for a “second career” after finishing their active service in the Army. In addition to educating future military professionals, the faculty also provides university education to civilian students in the integrated security management specialization and for the needs of the Czech defence industry. Study programmes which are accredited by the Ministry of Education Accreditation Committee and implemented by the faculty comply with the legislative requirements and conventions in the Czech Republic as well as the recommendations given by the European Union, OECD and other international organisations.
