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.
High-Temperature Plasma Physics and Thermonuclear Fusion
(Joint doctoral program in agreement with the Ghent University)
The program integrates a wide range of scientific and engineering knowledge focused on advanced parts of plasma physics and related technologies. The challenge of mastering the controlled thermonuclear fusion is emphasized in the program. The program steers students to the application of their acquired expertise to scientific and engineering practice, in combination with the application of up-to-date computer modeling. Its international character is safeguarded by the agreement on the joint program with the Belgian Ghent University. The agreement fosters contact with excellent European research teams, strong mobility, and cooperation with Czech students who may be registered in the national version of this joint program. Last but not least, the partner the Ghent University shall organize an internship with a minimum duration of 6 months.
