Program description

PhD Military Engineering / Safety and Security Sciences

The  aim of the Doctoral School of Security Sciences is to train technical researchers who are able to go beyond the traditional, disciplinary approach and solve independent research and development tasks based on real industrial needs through the synergistic, creative application of the acquired knowledge. In this way, the line between previously sharply separated disciplines is blurred, and the project-oriented approach needed to solve practical tasks generates synergies between disciplines, and a novel security science “knowledge angle” emerges.

The core members of the Doctoral School have already cooperated significantly in their research. At the same time, one of the basic goals of the Doctoral School is for core members, supervisors, lecturers and guest lecturers not only to strengthen their own research topics, but to complement each other to generate new research topics of interdisciplinary nature and achieve significant results by international talented young people.

Admission requirements

Applicants for the PhD degree program must hold an MSc or MPhil, or equivalent degree issued by an academic institution and must possess an overall understanding of a high competence in their field of knowledge and also be familiar with cognitive disciplines. They must be capable of using various research techniques. Admission requirements include excellent grades, an MSc degree (or equivalent), a final project, and/or the achievement of good initial results in research. Applicants still in process of working on their Master's degree projects may be admitted conditionally.

In case of applicants who have devoted time to a scientific or engineering practice, their achievements during this period will be considered in addition to their graduation results. In addition to professional achievements, applicants should clearly demonstrate a sense of responsibility for the advancement of scientific knowledge.

Certification of English Language Proficiency

The English language proficiency requirement can be waived in case of previous studies completed fully in English with qualification documents (i.e. high school diploma or undergraduate degree in case of applications to graduate programs) issued originally in English.
