About this program

PhD in Thermal Engineering and Fuels in Industry

The aim of the doctoral study program "Thermal Engineering and Fuels in Industry" is the scientific education of professionals who are able to creatively solve scientific research problems in the field of thermal engineering, energy, fuel chemistry, ceramic materials especially for high temperatures and material and energy utilization of waste. . The graduate is able to independently identify and formulate a scientific problem, design and develop a method of solution and implement theoretical, experimental, computational or simulation activities aimed at solving the problem. Graduates of the field are ready to develop and design new technologies and thermal-technical and energy equipment, as well as to increase the technical level of existing ones, especially with regard to increasing productivity, saving fuels and energy while minimizing environmental impact.

The aim of the study is the scientific education of experts who will be able to solve scientific research problems in the field of thermal engineering, energy, fuel chemistry, ceramic materials and waste utilization. The goal is achieved by leading to the systematic acquisition, deepening and application of current theoretical and practical knowledge in the field studied and the development of the creative talent of the personality of the researcher.

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".

Qualification

Graduate's knowledge

Students of the doctoral study program will acquire theoretical knowledge by studying appropriately selected subjects, whose offer covers the issues of thermal engineering and energy, industrial ceramics, fuel chemistry, environmental impact and also includes general subjects such as numerical mathematics and statistics. The doctoral student deepens special theoretical and professional knowledge related to the solved project by independent study of literature and consultations with teachers. The graduate becomes an expert with a broad interdisciplinary perspective, who understands theories and modern research methods in the field studied.

Graduate's skills

The graduate is able to formulate a problem, design and apply research methodology in order to expand knowledge in the field, increase the technical level of thermal and energy technologies and equipment, develop new types of fuels and materials for use especially at high temperatures and seek new ways to use waste and alternative energy sources. . Students are guided to develop creative thinking in the research process, starting with a theoretical analysis of the problem and ending with the design or innovation of laboratory procedures or production technologies and equipment. Graduates manage the implementation of laboratory and operational experiments, evaluation of measured data, learn to create and solve a mathematical formulation of the problem, create and use a physical or numerical model and verify it. The graduate is able to use measuring and analytical instruments and specialized software in the field of study.
