Study programs

Doctoral studies are individual with a standard length of four years. Study programs take place in full-time or combined forms of study. After the successful completion of the studies, the Ph.D. degree is awarded. The Ph.D. study programs accredited at our faculty are

  • Technical Cybernetics,
  • Applied Sciences in Engineering and
  • Environmental Engineering.

Technical Cybernetics involves mainly Computer Science disciplines, Mechatronics, and Electrical Engineering, and Informatics. In particular,

  • optimal and suboptimal methods for control of technological processes,
  • control and nonlinear dynamical systems in automation applications,
  • processing speech, text and image signals,
  • artificial intelligence,
  • robotics,
  • design of measuring components,
  • technical diagnostics, diagnostics of digital circuits,
  • design of electronic circuits, electric drives and their control,
  • reliability and risk analysis of engineering and service operations.

Applied Sciences in Engineering is a doctoral study program focused on problems on the boundary between engineering and natural sciences. The topic of the dissertation falls within one of the following fields:

  • Computer simulations
    Development of numerical models and computer simulation of problems in solid mechanics, fluid mechanics, acoustics, groundwater transport phenomena, electromagnetism, piezoelectric systems, intelligent materials and metamaterials. Related coupled problems, stochastic, inverse and optimization problems.
    Applications: mechanical engineering, aerospace, biomechanics, geoscience (ground-water flow, radioactive waste disposal, gas storage, geothermal energy)
  • Physics and optics
    Development and application of methods in optical measurement, interferometry, digital holography and microscopy, laser technologies, compressed sensing, optical measurements in fluid dynamics.
    Applications: high-power laser systems, cosmic technologies, optical detection of chemical species, ultraprecise measurement of distance, shape and surfaces, new methods for image and spectral recording and processing, 2D and 3D refractive index measurement, nondestructive testing.
  • Materials
    Piezoelectric and ferroelectric materials, intelligent materials and metamaterials, nanostructured materials, filtration and membrane technologies.
    Applications: intelligent sensors, actuators, piezoelectric resonators and microelectromechanical systems, particle and pathogen filtration from air, wastewater treatment, tissue engineering.

Environmental Engineering is a doctoral study program accredited in collaboration with the University of Opole. A graduate of the doctoral program is specialized in advanced experimental and theoretical tools for the study of environmental problems and uses an engineering approach to solve problems in this field. Typical topics are as follows:

  • Physical principles and sources of external interference, its interaction with the cardiostimulators and other wearable electronics on living bodies;
  • Heterogeneous activation of peroxides by iron nano-structures;
  • Development of bioplastic electrospun fibers and membranes based on natural hydrocolloids and their potential applications in environmental and food packaging;
  • Nanofibers and membranes based on renewable polymers: fabrication, characterization and its potential applications;
  • Environmental data analyses for groundwater supply sustainability;
  • Prediction of climate change influences on slope stability;
  • Preparation of nano gels, and composite fibers for potential applications;
  • Core-shell nanoparticles for detection and removal of pollutants from the environment;
  • The study of microbial population dynamics in the membrane bioreactors treating industrial wastewaters;
  • Microbiology in a deep geological repository for radioactive waste.

Next, our faculty is in charge of the administration of a university Ph.D. program

  • Nanotechnologies
