About your studies
Graduates from the follow-up master's degree program may be admitted to study on a doctoral degree program in materials, technology, quality, or metrology. This study is the third, highest level of university study, is in full-time or combined form and the standard study period is 4 years. Graduates from doctoral study programs are awarded the academic title of Doctor, abbreviated to Ph.D. after their name.
During your studies, you take your state Doctoral examination within two years from the start of the program, and it ends within four years with the defense of your thesis, which proves your ability and readiness for independent activity in your field of research or development. You choose the form of study and its schedule. We will create the conditions you need for your independent scientific, research, and creative activities.
