journey starts here!
If you want to study Engineering or Computer Science-related degree at university then this is the perfect pathway for you. You will study a mix of core and subject-related modules to develop your academic skills, Slovak and English language, employability skills and academic knowledge.
Engineering and Computing
By starting your studies at COCEEU on our Foundation Year, you develop a wide-ranging understanding of the ways in which industrial sector work, as well as essential mathematics or science qualifications.
The Foundation Year prepares you to continue your undergraduate / graduate studies in the specialism of your choice . Studying in small classes for 35 hours per week, plus 25 hours of self-study per week (recommended) , you will be thoroughly prepared to enter your chosen degree at one university.
Our experienced tutors help you to develop the academic knowledge and practical skills you’ll need to succeed throughout your degree and in your future career. Thanks to this course your chances of passing the entrance exams at your chosen university in Slovakia will greatly increase.

Academic Slovak Skills
Academic English Skills
The Academic English Language Skills module provides thorough training in the English language and related academic skills to prepare you for degree-level study at university in Slovakia. You will develop your academic writing, effective reading strategies, presentation skills, note taking, essay writing and ability to contribute in group discussions. This module will ensure you reach the required level in reading, writing, listening and speaking in order to progress to your chosen university.
Foundation Mathematics 1
1. To develop the basic skills of algebra and geometry and to introduce the mathematics for f engineering. To extend the knowledge base in algebra and geometry.
2. To provide students with an appreciation of the breadth of engineering. To develop computing skills by using Mathematical Software Suites. To successfully deploy these skills to generate and communicate engineering knowledge to a range of audiences.
Foundation Mathematics 2
To develop the basic skills of algebra, geometry and trigonometry and to introduce the mathematics of engineering. To extend the knowledge base in algebra and geometry and to introduce concepts of statistics. To develop concepts in differential and integral calculus, together with basic analytical techniques and obtain experience in applications of calculus to engineering problems.
To introduce electricity and magnetism as a basis for an Engineering Degree program, and to provide a quantitative understanding of the many phenomena that waves and vibrations exhibit that will be needed in engineering courses. There is an emphasis on applications to provide practice, and to illustrate the relevance of the material.
To develop the basic skills of statics, kinematics and dynamics and apply them to engineering problems.
Fundamentals of Materials
To develop knowledge and understanding of the influence of material structure (from atomic through to micro structural) on the chemical and physical properties of materials.
