It is a member of the family of 28 public and state universities in the Czech Republic and it is a member of EUA and IGIP, the International Society for Engineering Pedagogy.

Founded in 1952, UCT Prague's origins date back to 1807 when the first course in chemistry was delivered at Prague Polytechnic. Reorganization of the polytechnic in 1920 resulted in the transformation of the chemistry department into the School of Chemical Technology, one of the seven sections of the Czech Technical University.
