What is fithesis?

Fithesis is a document class for the typesetting of theses using the LaTeX document preparation system. Historically, the fithesis classes were used primarily by the students of the Faculty of Informatics and the Faculty of Science at the Masaryk University in Brno. With fithesis, students of any faculty can benefit from the typesetting prowess of LaTeX with a class that was designed for compliance with the requirements of every faculty at the Masaryk University. The students and staff of other academic institutions are encouraged to extend the class to fit their specific requirements.

What is fibeamer?

Fibeamer is a beamer theme for the typesetting of thesis defense presentations using the LaTeX document preparation system. By default, the theme only supports the faculties of the Masaryk University, but it can be easily extended to provide support for other academic institutions as well.

You are encouraged to use the mubeamer beamer theme instead of fibeamer. Unlike fibeamer, mubeamer will receive future updates to reflect changes to the unified visual style of the Masaryk University.
