    Programme Description

    The basic concept of the program Chemistry and Chemical Engineering is based on skills aquired during second stage graduate program and the new in-depth knowledge of basic chemistry and (bio) chemical engineering, allowing graduates a comprehensive implementation and management of the most demanding research and development projects in the industries and also in the research and development facilities. The program is based on the use of a systemic approach to the design and synthesis of complex industrial and basic problems by utilizing the most advanced analytical and synthetic methodologies. The program offers an in-depth chemical, biochemical and engineering skills necessary to develop innovative methods and processes. The program is designed with the aim to educate high-level personnel who will have all the tools necessary for a successful career: an excellent education, relevant and practical experience and extensive base of knowledge.
    The 3rd stage doctoral program Chemistry and Chemical Engineering lasts three years. Each year is evaluated with 60 ECTS credits, ie. total of 180 ECTS. The number of contact hours in the first year is 70, namely in the first semester, the students pass two basic optional exams (40 contact hours) and 30 in the second half, when students do the first optional subject and start with the individual research work (IRW I). The second year in the winter semester provides 30 contact hours. Students perform another elective course and proceed with an individual research work (IRW II, IRW III), the number of contact hours is 30. The third year of study is based on individual student work, with the winter semester devoted to the continuation of research (IRD IV) and the summer term focuses on the doctoral dissertation. The total number of contact hours is 205, an individual work of students is estimated at 5195 hours. Total student load is 5400 hours, or. 1800 hours per year. The proportion of individual work of students is about 95%, equivalent to an increasing importance of independent study in comparison with the masters program. Study is an integral part of individual research work within the scope of 90 ECTS and doctoral thesis of an extent of 30 ECTS. The focus of the doctoral study lies in the development of research skills and in the development of the ability of interpreting the results, while the most important goal is the develpoment of the abilities for individual research planning, organisation of research work and drawing appropriate conclusions.
