Level of course unit: Doctoral
Faculty: Faculty of Chemistry
Academic year: 2018/2019
A title awarded: Ph.D.
Qualification awarded: Ph.D. in the field "Physical Chemistry"
Level of qualification: Doctoral (3rd cycle)
Specific admission requirements:
The admission to the Faculty of Chemistry is conditioned by the completion of the Master's program in the same or a related field. The basic prerequisites for the admission are interest and aptitude for scientific work, knowledge of the English language and a very good study record achieved in the Master's program (grade point average of all passed examinations usually does not exceed 2.0).
Profile of the programme
The main objective of the study is to train the highly qualified professionals who will be prepared for independent, creative, scientific and research activities in the field of physical chemistry. Students are trained to formulate a scientific problem independently, propose hypotheses and procedures leading to its solving and attempt its confirmation on an experimental or theoretical level.
Critical evaluation of published scientific information and the ability to communicate in English - both verbally and in written form, makes an integral part of the study.
Key learning outcomes
The post-graduate in Ph.D. study programme Physical Chemistry is able to formulate independently the scientific problem, to design the hypothesis for the solution and to carry out experimental and theoretical work for its confirmation. Simultaneously, he is capable of critical evaluation of published scientific information and of presentation of experimental results in the English language as well.
Occupational profiles of graduates with examples
The specialization trains professionals who will be able to participate in highly qualified scientific and research activities based on physically-chemical processes, namely in university departments, the departments of The Academy of Sciences, research institutes, but also in industrial research centers.
The graduates are prepared for independent creative work in the area of physical chemistry. Due to a wide range of practical applications of physical chemistry, the graduates can find employment not only in physical and chemical research but virtually in all chemical or chemistry-related specializations.
