Doctoral School of Military Engineering

The Doctoral School of Military Engineering focuses on fields of research that are specifically related to the military application of engineering. This includes the training and preparation for scientific research in various related fields ranging from basic and applied researches and development, through technology and technology-transfer to technological innovation.

The Doctoral School of Military Engineering focuses on 7 areas of research:
- Military Engineering Infrastructures
- Military Technology and Robotics
- Defence Electronics and ICT
- Environmental Security and Disaster Management
- Military Logistics and Defence Economy
- Security Technology
- Defence Management

The training of the Doctoral School is available in the following forms:
• organised training
- full-time training (funded by scholarship or individually through tuition fee)
- part-time (funded individually through tuition fee)
- individual training (funded individually through tuition fee)
• individual preparation

The organised training lasts 6 semesters and applies the system of credit points. In order to successfully complete their training and receive their leaving certificate (absolutory) by the end of the 6th semester, PhD students must obtain at least 180 credit points in accordance with the following criteria:
- study obligations (min. 50 credits)
- scientific research work (min. 120 credits)
- holding lectures (max. 10 credits)

Having successfully finished their PhD studies, students of the Doctoral School will have gained a knowledge that enables them to participate with great advantage in the competition for higher ranking scientific positions in various fields of expertise within the public and the private sector as well.
