Insignia and gowns of VŠPJ

The external expression of the academic traditions of the VŠPJ are the insignia and gowns used on festive occasions, such as the academic ceremonies of the Rector's inauguration, the matriculation of students or the graduation of graduates.

The insignia are the rector's chain, the vice-rectors' chains and the scepter. They are decorated with symbols recalling the historical heritage of the region - the symbols of the lion, Moravian eagle, hedgehog and rowan trees are directly related to the regional emblem and the crossed hammers to the mining past of the Highlands. The materials are also closely linked to the region - walnut wood, mother-of-pearl, silver, precious stones and noble rocks from all over the Highlands.

Medaile VŠPJ "Silver of the Highlands"

The Rector of the Polytechnic University of Jihlava has the right, after approval by the Academic Council of the VŠPJ, to award the VŠPJ Medal as a recognition of personalities who have contributed to the dissemination of education and academic freedoms, in particular to the development of the Polytechnic University of Jihlava, for significant activities at the VŠPJ and for relations to it, as well as for activities in areas related to the scientific, research, creative and pedagogical focus of the VŠPJ. The meaning of awarding the medal is symbolically expressed in its artistic and craft design. The materials used (wood, silver line in authentic rock), the historical significance of the silver veins for the city of Jihlava and the whole of Europe connect the first public university based in the Highlands with supra-regional links.
