Qualification: Doctorate in the field of technical environmental protection (no legal status)

Doctorate in the field of technical environmental protection (no legal status)

Qualification Information

Students will be able to:

  • demonstrate mastery of knowledge in a chosen scientific field (e.g. construction and design of engineering and environmental systems, computer modelling of engineering and environmental systems, computer modelling and experimental modelling of environmental phenomena, advanced concepts in environmental protection management) and further develop that knowledge,
  • find new sources of knowledge in the academic and professional spheres of environmental protection,
  • plan, evaluate and build advanced technologies, innovative products and systems that can potentially be offered in global markets, either now or in the future,
  • develop research methods across a broad spectrum of problems and in this way respond rapidly to new circumstances in both national and international contexts,
  • master new technological procedures and processes,
  • communicate knowledge in the form of lectures, expert appraisals and advice,
  • find new solutions and use a research approach to the design and manufacture of products that are connected to new techniques and the most advanced technologies, and take a holistic approach to waste management,
  • incorporate the findings of other disciplines into the broader field of technical protection of the environment,
  • demonstrate individual creative thinking,
  • demonstrate coherent mastery of basic knowledge and integrate knowledge from various areas,
  • place new information and interpretations in the context of the fundamental discipline,
  • demonstrate understanding of the basic structure of the fundamental discipline and the links between its sub-disciplines,
  • demonstrate understanding of and apply the methods of environmental analysis,
  • create detailed models of environmental systems,
  • demonstrate understanding of economics of environmental protection,
  • demonstrate knowledge of advanced waste water treatment processes,
  • demonstrate understanding of the geology of the environment, the impact of energy production on the environment and the prevention of the negative impacts of these processes,
  • demonstrate knowledge of hazardous substances released into the environment,
  • demonstrate knowledge of legislation, strategy and control in environmental protection,
  • demonstrate understanding of transmission phenomena in environmental systems.

  • A completed second-cycle study programme; or
  • a completed integrated master's programme consisting of 300 credits; or
  • a completed study programme leading to an academic higher education qualification, adopted before 11 June 2004, consisting of at least 240 credits; or
  • a completed study programme leading to a professional higher education qualification, adopted before 11 June 2004, and a study programme leading to a specialisation, together totalling at least 240 credits; such candidates are required to complete course units on ecology and environmental protection from the second-cycle programme totalling 30 credits before enrolling in the programme. Course units (selection of content) are determined for such candidates by the academic affairs committee of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, which takes into account the candidate's field of education (type of programme the candidate has completed),
  • completed equivalent education in another country.
