General

Program Description

Faculty of Chemical Technology

  • Study Field: Engineering of Energetic Materials

Study Program: Chemistry and Technology of Materials

  • Form of study: Part-time/Full-time
  • The standard length of study: 4 years
  • Number of ECTS credits allocated: Study is not credit-based
  • Graduation requirements: State Doctoral examination and Doctoral thesis defense
  • Tuition fee (per academic year): Maximum 4,900 EUR

Studies in the doctoral study branch of Engineering of Energetic Materials (EEM) are aimed at university graduates of compatible Master's degree programmes (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 form of study, students are individually guided by the supervisor and educated according to the approved themes of doctoral theses. Studies are focused mainly on the physics of explosions, 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 students to independent creative research work in the field of explosive physics, chemistry and technology of energetic materials, and safety engineering. The graduate can be characterised 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 state administration.

The doctoral study is structured according to the individual study plan. In addition to a tailor-made study theme of the doctoral thesis, the plan contains at least four subjects. Two subjects are compulsory: English language and Advanced Physics of Explosions. At least two compulsory electives are selected from the list of accredited courses having a thematically close relation to the theme of the doctoral thesis.
