During the study and cooperation with the supervisor, the graduate will acquire habits in independent and team creative work based on the general methodology of sciences. He is ready to solve the problems of basic and applied science in a creative way and at a high professional level. He has experience in laboratory and / or field work, is ready to design research tasks, is able to process the obtained data by appropriate statistical and / or graphical methods and publish them.

Graduates are employed in scientific (eg ASCR), departmental research (eg CHMI, CGS, VÚV TGM) and higher education institutions, or in management positions of professional sections of state administration (MoE) and the private sector.

Due to the fact that the study requires work with professional English text, communication with foreign experts, presentation of results at domestic and international conferences and publication of dissertation results in international peer-reviewed periodicals, the graduate of the proposed study program is ready to accept relevant positions abroad.
