The PhD education gives a coordinated and thoroughly supervised introduction to scientific research and development in various areas of engineering that are related to and strongly depend on information science and technologies. Each student is assigned to one or two supervisors responsible for the student’s activity. The students must take 8 classes above the MSc level, participate in various research activities, prepare and publish their own scientific publications that are necessary to get the PhD degree in a chosen topic, which is the final goal of the PhD course.  The Applied Informatics Doctoral School has two main programs:

- Intelligent Engineering Systems (optimal control, robotics, soft computing intelligent engineering design and production)

- Computational Engineering (numerical methods, optimization and simulation techniques, parallel computing, material sciences)

and can take any related research topic.
