About this program

PhD in Communication Technology

The Ph.D. study program Communication technology is focused on the scientific and academic education of experts who make their careers in the fields of research and development or in academia. Throughout their study, the Ph.D. students are an integral part of ongoing R&D projects. They actively publish the findings of their scientific work and are introduced to the scientific community by their mentors. The study requires a minimum of four academic years of study. After the successful defense of the thesis, the students are awarded the Ph.D. degree.

The aim of the study program Communication technology is to train highly skilled scientific experts in the fields of radio, optical or application-oriented sensor and computer networks. During the course of study, the attention is paid to the information and communication security as well. The graduates are capable of inventing novel and innovative solutions, use unconventional approaches to solve the problems, develop new technologies and enhance the current ones. This aim is imprinted on both the student selection process and the study course itself.
