The Doctoral Program at FNSPE CTU

The Doctoral Program in Applications of Natural Sciences and in Mathematical Engineering is open to graduates holding a Master's Degree who want to extend their scholarly qualification in a relevant field of study.

The research-oriented program provides in-depth training for a high level of professional competence in the chosen area (see below) and the ability to develop and use independently the professional knowledge and skills gained in research.

Nuclear Engineering

Field specializations:

  • Reactor Studies
  • Physics and Technology of Thermonuclear Fusion
  • Dosimetry and Applications of Ionizing Radiation
  • Experimental Physics and Particle Physics

This Ph.D. program is offered in cooperation with national and international academic and scientific institutions, i.e. Faculty of Electrical Engineering of the Czech Technical University (FEE CTU), Czech Academy of Sciences (CAS) - Institute of Physics (IP), Nuclear Physics Institute (NPI), and Institute of Plasma Physics (IPP), as well as Nuclear Research Institute Řež (NRI Řež), the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN), Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL), Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory (FNAL), and GSI Helmholtz Zentrum für Schwerionenforschung, Darmstadt. Participation of students (internships, data collection) in research at partner institutions is very common. The Ph.D. course is linked to research activities of individual departments and institutions and their grants.

Other useful information

The deadline for applications is usually twice a year and is announced regularly. In the application, the applicant should state, among other things, the chosen study program and considered the topic of the doctoral thesis (also referred to as dissertation).
