Doctoral studies in doctoral study branch of Engineering of Energetic Materials (EEM) are aimed at university graduates of compatible Master's degree programs (chemistry, chemical engineering, chemical technology, physics, mechanical engineering, military technologies, etc.). The studies are focused on scientific research and independent creative activity in the field of research or development. In both full-time and combined forms of study, students are individually guided by the supervisor and educated according to the approved themes of doctoral theses. Studies focus mainly on the physics of explosion, on the chemistry and chemical technology of individual energetic materials (high explosives, propellants, pyrotechnic products, and compositions), and on the safety engineering of chemical production.
The aim of the study is to lead the students to the independent creative research work in the field of explosive physics, chemistry, and technology of energetic materials and safety engineering. The graduate can be characterized as a highly qualified expert that is able to ensure the development of new processes, products, and legislation, including the introduction of the outputs of this activity into technical, technological and legislative practice. Graduates will find employment in research institutes, in defense, mining and chemical industries, in the army, police, and in the state administration.
The doctoral study is realized according to the individual study plan. In addition to a tailor-made study theme of doctoral theses, the plan contains at least four subjects. Two subjects are compulsory: English language and Advanced Physics of Explosion. At least two compulsory electives are selected from the list of accredited courses having a thematically close relation to the theme of doctoral theses.
