The Doctoral Study Program Transport Technology and Management is designed to provide students with a theoretical and methodological background of transport technology and management (including postal and courier services) in compulsory subjects. Attention is paid mainly to the use of mathematical and other methods in transport management and to research methods. The aim of the study is to prepare erudite professionals and scientists in the field of transport technology and management (including postal and courier services) who are able to analyze complex problems in the field, use results of the analyses to propose appropriate solutions and control systems, based on their own scientific research in close connection with the application in practice. Increasing students' competencies in selected areas of transport and postal and courier services is assured by an offer of compulsory-elective courses focused on investment decision making, logistics systems, modeling of technological processes, data structures and algorithms and security management. An integral part of the professional education is an excursion within an exchange program or internship abroad or involvement in an international creative project with results published or presented abroad, and targeted language preparation. Fulfilling the study objectives will enable students to become top professionals and researchers and scientists involved in transport technology and management and postal and courier services equipped with the necessary competencies applicable to scientific departments and institutions, universities and other research and development workplaces.
Graduates of the Doctoral Study Program Transport Technology and Management have a comprehensive knowledge and competencies to analyze and solve complex problems in the field of transport technology and management (including postal and courier services). They are able to propose innovative solutions to these problems on the basis of their own scientific work, to publish research results on the international level, and compare them with results achieved by domestic and foreign experts from universities, research institutions, and specialist departments. They are able to use information systems and information technologies, actively cooperate with experts in the field. They have developed teamwork habits in working on projects and solving research tasks. They are ready to engage in scientific activities both in the academic environment and in research organizations and research institutes in the business sphere. They have a very good knowledge of theory and practice interaction, safety and sustainability of the proposed solutions in technical, technological and methodological areas.
