Engineering and Technology

One must accomplish two things when earning a PhD. First one must understand a particular subject thoroughly. Secondly, one must extensively in knowledge about that subject.

The field of engineering and technology involves the study of how the conceptual design focus of engineering can be utilized in technological applications. Engineering and technology students learn how to take the plans made by engineers and make them work in the real world.

Europe is, by convention, one of the world's seven continents. Comprising the western most point of Eurasia, Europe is usually divided from Asia by the watershed divides of the Ural and Caucasus Mountains, the Ural River, the Caspian and Black Seas, and the waterways connecting the Black and Aegean Seas.

PhD in Applied Geology

Charles University Faculty of Science
Campus Full time Part time 4 years September 2017 Czech Republic Prague + 1 more

A graduate of the Applied Geology Ph.D. program has acquired deep knowledge in the field of engineering geology focused on theoretical and experimental soil and rock mechanics as well as geotechnical mathematical modelling. [+]

Applied geology with specializations of geology of mineral deposits, engineering geology, hydrogeology, applied geophysics, environmental geology and geochemistry is focused on study and the use of the rock environment and its protection. ENGINEERING GEOLOGY Engineering geology applies the geological knowledge in design and construction in all branches of civil engineering, in mining and in urban planning. It is an interdisciplinary field in between the science and technology. Using technical or rather mathematical methods, the knowledge gained by geology is applied in analyzing geodynamic processes and the interaction between the rock and civil engineering structures. HYDROGEOLOGY Hydrogeology is a scientific field engaged in groundwaters, their origin, conditions of incidence, laws of movement, their regimes, physical and chemical properties, their interaction with rocks, surface water and atmosphere. Hydrogeology ranges among applied geological branches and has closest relation to engineering geology. Modern hydrogeology has the character of a cross-border scientific discipline at the margin between geology, hydraulics, hydrology, chemistry and several technological disciplines (water management, civil engineering, chemical technology of water treatment etc.).A necessary method of modern hydrogeology is the development and use of mathematical models simulating natural processes as well as artificial interventions in the regime of waters both in saturated and unsaturated zones. The contents of the hydrogeology of today is moving from simple searching for water resources to the determination of optimum conditions of their utilization and protection. Hydrogeology plays an irreplacable role in the field of the protection of the living environment, in research and remediation of contaminated soils, rocks and groundwater. APPLIED GEOPHYSICS Applied geophysics studies physical fields and their utilization in solving geological problems. The main interest is in the upper part of the Earth s crust in the depth range of the first meters to first kilometers. The basic methods of applied geophysics are: gravity methods, magnetic methods, seismic methods, geoelectrical methods, radioactivity methods, geothermal methods and well logging. Geophysical methods are applied for investigation and exploration of mineral deposits, building materials, water resources, energy resources and are significant in monitoring and protection of natural environment. Description of the entrance examination and evaluation criteria The entrance examination has one round and is held as an interview. In exceptional cases, requested in writing by 30 April 2017, the dean can permit entrance examinations to take place via information and communication technology. During the entrance examination the candidate must demonstrate technical and linguistic skills to study the given field along with attributes necessary for scientific work. The entrance examination also takes into account the interest of the candidate in pursuing specific doctoral work with a particular supervisor and the candidate’s ability to handle this topic. The maximum score of the examination is 100 points. Conditions for admission Submission of a properly completed application, including prescribed appendices, and payment of the application fee by 30 April 2017.
