Admission to the Doctoral's Study Programme

Doctoral degree programmes are designed for master’s degree holders and focused on scientific research and independent creative activities in research and development. The Faculty provides all doctoral study programmes for foreign students in the Czech and English language. The conditions for foreign students taking courses in Czech language are the same as for Czech students and no tuition fee is required. Study in Czech language is free of charge. It is necessary though to keep in mind that Czech is not an easy language to master for native speakers of other than Slavonic languages. To be able to study in Czech, international applicants are recommended to have completed at least the B1 level of Czech to succeed in studying in Czech. Study in English is subject to a fee.


We offer three Doctoral's degree programmes in English: Applied MechanicsMachines and Equipment Design and Technologies and Materials.
