Doctorate in the field of electrical engineering (no legal status)

Qualification Information

Students will be able to:

(general competences)

  • use mathematical, scientific and computing knowledge to resolve engineering problems,
  • use analytical, experimental and simulative methods to resolve practical problems within the field,
  • analyse and synthesise complex problems in the field of electrical engineering with the aim of proposing technically optimal solutions, taking into account broader socio-economic consequences and restrictions,
  • plan electrical engineering components, systems and processes that will satisfy set objectives and requirements in practice,
  • integrate theoretical knowledge, research and development methods and modern planning tools in the resolution of complex engineering problems,
  • give public presentations of technical, developmental, organisational and management solutions in written or oral form,
  • demonstrate mastery of methods and techniques for autonomous research and analysis and evaluation of results,
  • demonstrate autonomy in professional work, show critical judgement and take responsibility for proposed solutions and
  • establish and lead development groups, project groups and expert groups.

(subject-specific competences)

  • demonstrate comprehensive understanding of the laws of physics in the field of electromagnetics and the capacity to develop new technological solutions,
  • use information technologies in various electrical engineering fields (planning, systems management and control, communication),
  • use analytical methods, models and simulation tools,
  • demonstrate proficiency in the methods of planning installations and systems in the fields of power installations and systems, electronics, automation and robotics,
  • analyse and evaluate devices and systems,
  • demonstrate mastery of research and development methods,
  • integrate knowledge from various engineering disciplines in new systemic solutions and technologies,
  • demonstrate understanding of the laws and technology of energy-to-mass conversions in power systems processes and

Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, University of Maribor

-

Students' knowledge is assessed by means of practical exercises and seminar papers, and also via products, projects, performances, services, etc. and by examinations. Examination performance is scored as follows: 10 (excellent); 9 (very good: above-average knowledge but with some mistakes); 8 (very good: solid results); 7 (good); 6 (adequate: knowledge satisfies minimum criteria); 5–1 (inadequate). In order to pass an examination, a candidate must achieve a grade between adequate (6) and excellent (10).

-

In order to complete the programme, students must complete all course units prescribed by the programme for a total of at least 180 ECTS credits.
