Engineering Mathematics PhD Programme

Basic requirements for admission

Based on the recommendations from the Admission Committee, the Dean decides on the admission of the students. A necessary condition for being admitted is to obtain a consent of a supervisor who is supposed to guide the student in case of an admission. The interview deals mainly with the dissertation plane and candidate’s knowledge on a given field of study and considers both expertise in the subject and the results during the master studies.

More information on the application for the PhD programme can be found on the faculty webpage.

Aims of the Engineering Mathematics PhD programme

The main aim of the Engineering Mathematics PhD programme is to develop and enrich students holistically, to prepare them for independent scientific work in various areas of mathematics such as Functional Analysis, Mathematical theory of Image Recognition, Applied Algebraic Geometry, Category Theory, Algebra, Probability and Statistics. Our goal is closely related to the need for highly educated mathematical experts in Engineering, Economy and Natural Sciences.
