Title
Phd.

Deepen your knowledge of physical sciences and engineering. Create a "bridge" between physicists, designers and technologists. You will learn to use the methods of contemporary physics to solve problems in the field of applied optics, surface physics, nanostructures and micromechanics of materials. During the research you will use the most modern equipment of the Central European Institute of Technology in Brno (CEITEC). And, of course, you have a long-term stay at a foreign university or institution, for example at TU Wien, Weizmann Institute, nanoGune San Sebastian, University of Stuttgart or ETH Zurich. And you will participate in cooperation with leading high-tech companies, not only in the Czech Republic.

Upon completion of your studies, you will be prepared for scientific research activities in research institutions or universities. You can take high positions in high-tech companies or in teams that deal with the development of new products within the modern trend of parallel engineering.

Graduate profile:

A graduate of the doctoral study programme is a highly qualified expert with broad theoretical knowledge and practical skills, which enables him/her to carry out creative and research activities both independently and/or in a scientific team. The graduate is acquainted with current findings in the field of design and process engineering and is able to apply the knowledge in his/her research or creative activities. The graduate is also able to prepare a research project proposal and to oversee a project. At the same time, the graduate is able to make use of theoretical knowledge and transfer it in practice. Moreover, the graduate can adapt findings from related disciplines, cooperate on interdisciplinary tasks and increase their professional qualifications. The graduate participation in national and international research and cooperation with international research institutions contributes to higher level of their professional competences. This experience allows graduates not only to carry out their own scientific activities, but also to professionally present their results, and to take part in international discussions.
The graduate can demonstrate knowledge and skills in three main areas and the synergy produces great outcomes.
1. Broad theoretical knowledge and practical skills closely related to the topic of the dissertation (see below).
2. Professional knowledge and skills necessary to carry out scientific work, research, and creative activities.
3. Interpersonal and soft skills and competencies - the graduate is able to present their ideas and opinions professionally, is able to present and defend the results of their work and to discuss them and work effectively in a scientific team or to lead a team.
According to the topic of the dissertation, the graduate will acquire highly professional knowledge and skills in mechanical engineering, in particular in design and operation of machines, machinery, engineering processes and vehicles and transport vehicles. Thanks to the broad knowledge and skills, graduates can pursue a career in research institutes in the Czech Republic and abroad, as well as in commercial companies and applied research.
