PhD. studies

Pursuing doctoral studies at the Faculty of Aeronautics means devoting yourself to a research project under the supervision of an experienced researcher. You will follow an individual study plan, take courses within a doctoral programme and write a thesis. In order to succeed as a doctoral student, you need to be goal oriented, driven and willing to take responsibility for your own work. Your development goes hand in hand with the progression of your research project and coursework.

Doctoral study in the  full-time form lasts 3 years, in the part-time form lasts 4 years. The student is offered a scholarship for the doctoral study in the full-time form.  The part-time form of study is charged by 1000, – € / academic year.

The condition for admission to the doctoral study in the academic year 2020/2021 is the completion of the second level of university education and successful completion of the entrance examination.

PhD. study applications, in which the applicant lists one of the dissertation topics listed in the relevant study program together with the name of the supervisor, must be delivered to the Department of Science and Research at the Faculty of Aeronautics, or sent by post (registered mail).

The dissertation topics for AY 2020/2021 are published separately.

Estimated numbers of admitted students

  • Full-time study: 3/13 (Air transport management / Aerospace systems)
  • Part-time study: 10

The application will be accompanied by a curriculum vitae, certified copies of the documents of completion of studies, a list of scientific and scientific papers published so far, a framework project on the topic of the dissertation and proof of payment for the admission procedure.

The entrance examination consists of a linguistic and a professional part. The number of admitted applicants in full-time study depends on the number of doctoral positions at the Faculty of Aviation. The dean decides on the admission of candidates on the basis of a recommendation, resp. a candidate advisor appointed by the admission committee in the field of study TRANSPORT.

Application deadline: until 31 May 2020
Date of the interview: 23 June 2020
Admission fee: 40,- € (print application)
30,- € (e-application)
