As early as 1776, lectures in agricultural economics were introduced at the Faculty of Philosophy of the Charles University in Prague. The Chair of Agricultural Economy was located at the Czech Polytechnics, on the basis of an Imperial Decree issued on 17 December 1812. First lectures in forestry sciences were launched in autumn 1848. On 26 October 1906 a College of of Agricultural Sciences was established at the Czech Technical University (CTU). Professor Stoklasa, an eminent expert in plant breeding and plant genetics, was appointed as the first Dean of the College. In those days university studies lasted four years. Graduates received an engineer-agronomist degree (Ing.). Since its beginning the College was very active. However, the tragic events of World War I temporarily slowed down its development. With the foundation of an independent Czecholslovak State in 1918, a new chapter started in the development of the College of Agricultural Sciences.
