PhD graduates of the academic study programme in Mechanical Engineering are competent to conduct research and solve problems in real life practice activities. Competencies include, above all, the development of critical thinking skills, problem analysis capabilities, the synthesis solution, predicting the behaviour of selected solutions with a clear representation of what is good and what is bad by the selected solution.
Qualifications that indicate the completion of doctoral academic studies are gained by students:
- who have demonstrated systematic knowledge and understanding in the field of civil engineering that complements the knowledge gained at graduate academic studies, being the basis for developing critical thinking and application of knowledge;
- who have mastered the skills and methods of research in the field of civil engineering;
- who have shown the ability of making concepts, design and application
- who have shown ability to adapt the research process with the necessary level of academic integrity;
- who have performed original research and work, extending the boundaries of knowledge, which is verified by publishing papers in the appropriate scientific journal and by the references in national and international levels;
- who are capable of critical analysis, evaluation and synthesis of new and complex ideas;
- who are capable of knowledge and ideas transfer to their colleagues, wider academic community and society in general
- who are capable of promoting technological, social and cultural progress in the academic and professional environment
These competences are realized through monitoring study processes and individual results of students.
