Doctoral Studies

After successful completion of the master's degree, students have the opportunity to continue their doctoral studies, the content and purpose of which is mainly scientific research and independent creative activity in the field of research or development. Admission to study is subject to an appropriate education in the fields of engineering and natural sciences. Doctoral studies are the highest type of study at the university and graduates are employed as research and development workers in industry, research institutes and universities.

 

Lenght of study: 4 years

Form of study: full-time and part-time 

Completion of studies: by successfully passing the state doctoral examination and defending the dissertation, the graduate receives the academic degree "Doctor" - abbreviated Ph.D. after the name.

Fee / Academic year: 2000 USD (Study in English). We can your reimburse part of the costs in the form of a merit, creative or extraordinary scholarship if you achieve extraordinary academic results and fulfil the conditions set out in the TUL Scholarship Regulations and the directive of the Dean of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering. Study in Czech language is free of charge (the fee is sponsored by the Czech government).

Study programmes:

Applied Mechanics

Study Parameters

Contact: prof. Ing. Tomáš Vít, Ph.D.


Specializations:

  • Engineering Mechanics
  • Fluid Mechanics and Thermodynamics

The doctoral study branch Applied Mechanics is focused on independent scientific and research projects in the field of mechanics. Its aim is to produce highly-educated and creative graduates capable of taking part in scientific, research and professional applications of the laws of mechanics in mechanical engineering. To be able to succeed in solutions of tasks in the fields of engineering mechanics, the Ph.D. candidates further extend and refine their knowledge of mathematics, physics (mechanics) and applied sciences in the theoretical foundation of the study discipline.

 

The graduates are able to independently apply the mastered skills and the high level of theoretical knowledge provided in lectures and acquired through modern learning methods for solving specific problems in the selected areas of engineering mechanics, mechanics of rigid and pliable bodies, mechanics of liquids and thermodynamics. Furthermore, they are familiar with the research methods in the field of applied mechanics and capable of critical analysis, evaluation and synthesis, thus able to discuss the results of their investigations and to extend the sum of the current knowledge in a professional way worth of publishing and sharing with other members of the professional community both in their country and abroad.

 

After the completion of the study branch the graduates will succeed in positions of research team members in both theoretical and applied research areas or as experts in the teams of industrial development centres and major research institutions focusing on a particular area. Due to their profound knowledge and professional approaches, they will also succeed in a broader context as lecturers of the tertiary education institutions.

The doctoral study branch Machines and Equipment Design is focused on independent scientific and research projects in the field of design of machines and equipment. Its aim is to produce highly-educated and creative graduates capable of taking part in scientific, research and professional activities. The Ph.D. candidates further extend and refine their knowledge of mathematics, physics and applied sciences in the theoretical foundation of the study discipline to be able to succeed in solutions of tasks in the fields of development and design, modelling and simulations of operations and design and performance of experiments.

 

The graduates are able to independently apply the mastered skills and the high level of theoretical knowledge provided in lectures and acquired through modern learning methods, e. g. calculations and experiments, for solving specific problems in the selected areas of the design of parts and mechanisms of machines, wheeled transport, handling machines, working and assembling machines, piston combustion engines, glass-making machines and robotics, textile machines and machines for production of nanofibres, equipment for thermal technologies and for technical diagnostics, etc. Furthermore, they are familiar with the research methods in the field of the design of machines and equipment and capable of critical analysis, evaluation and synthesis, thus able to discuss the results of their investigations and to extend the sum of the current knowledge in a professional way worth of publishing and sharing with other members of the professional community both in their country and abroad.

 

After the completion of the study branch the graduates will succeed in positions of research team members in both theoretical and applied research areas or as experts in the teams of industrial development centres and major research institutions focusing on a particular area.

Organisation of doctoral studies

The study is conducted according to an individual study plan under the guidance of a supervisor and, if necessary, with the participation of a consultant. The level of knowledge is demonstrated by a state doctoral examination.

 

At the start of the doctoral programme, the student (doctoral candidate) chooses a specific topic to pursue during the programme. In the first year of study, the student prepares a research paper, a professional study of existing knowledge and the current state of knowledge concerning the focus of the dissertation, which is defended at a colloquium. The whole doctoral study is then focused on this topic, it includes the subjects that the doctoral student will need to address, his/her research activity is oriented in this direction and the results achieved are elaborated in the dissertation.

 

The study in the doctoral programme includes:
