About this program

PhD in Metallurgical Technology

The doctoral study branch Metallurgical Technology covers the entire issue of production and processing of liquid and solid materials based on iron and non-ferrous metals, thereby holds a unique position in the structure of disciplines of Czech universities.Workplaces of specialized departments are equipped with modern experimental, instrumental and analytical equipment with which it is possible to solve the challenging tasks of scientific research projects in the field of basic and also of applied research. The Doctoral Degree Programme educates top scientific professionals who will be able to apply their knowledge in the scientific, research, development and also in the production sphere in a highly professional and leader functions in the specific field and also in related fields.

The main goals of the study in the four-year doctoral study program Metallurgical Technology result from the need to fulfill the relevant profile of the graduate.

The main goal of the study program is to educate graduates with broad theoretical knowledge in the field of metallurgical technology, supplemented by specific practical knowledge and skills from training in laboratories, from practice in industrial enterprises with metallurgical technologies and from internships at foreign universities and research institutes. from scientific research cooperation in international scientific teams.

By completing theoretical and technological subjects according to the individual study plan and preparing a doctoral dissertation under the supervision of a supervisor, the student demonstrates the ability to creatively expand their knowledge of the field, demonstrates the ability of independent creative work in solving challenging technological tasks of industrial practice and demonstrates the ability to cooperate in tasks, both within the university and in international cooperation.

Admission requirements

  • diploma (follow-up) master’s degree;
  • diploma supplement;
  • a document proving the fulfilment of the condition of proper completion of studies in (follow-up) master degree program if education was obtained abroad (not applicable equivalent documents, e.g. from the Slovak Republic).
  • language certificate. The applicant is required to demonstrate their ability to study in the chosen language. In the case of studying in the Czech language, it is sufficient to submit a proof of university degree completed in the Czech or Slovak language; otherwise the applicant must submit a certificate proving their knowledge of the Czech language at B1 level. In the case of studying in the English language, it is sufficient to submit a proof of university degree completed in the English language; otherwise the applicant must submit a certificate proving their knowledge of English at B1 level (e.g. TOEFL or IELTS). If the information on teaching in English is not given on the document of previous education, it is necessary to provide the so-called "Medium of instruction".

Graduate's knowledge

Graduates receive a wide theoretical knowledge in specialized fields of science of individual departments of faculty that guarantee this field of study. A profound theoretical foundation in the field of metallurgy of production and processing of metals and non-ferrous metals, their casting and forming is complemented by knowledge of production technology and processing of liquid and solid materials based on iron and non-ferrous metals. The attention is also devoted to the numerical and physical modelling of metallurgical processes. An integral part of the study is orientation on the environmental aspects related with metallurgical production.

Graduate's skills

Graduates can expand the field of knowledge through original research based on the principles of scientific work obtained during the study. They can develop and evaluate theories, concepts and methods of the branch, including the definition of branches or their inclusion in the broader area.
