The aim of the study process is knowledge and capability for independent scientific and research work, use of literature, solving problems and acting creatively beyond current knowledge.
The study program of the doctoral studies equals 180 ECTS credits. Out of this number, 60 ECTS credits are gained by passing exams in teaching subjects, and 120 ECTS credits are gained by research work within the PhD thesis, as well as the very preparation and defending of PhD thesis. The study program contains optional subjects, which students choose depending on the optional field (module). The Faculty offers 10 optional fields (modules) which contain subjects related to the specific fields of electrical engineering and computer science.
Students profile their research interest by choosing subjects which they will study and pass. These subjects contribute to the knowledge and understanding the topic of the PhD thesis. Subjects can be taught within the group or individually (with mentor). Group teaching is performed in the case when there are five or more students interested in a certain subject, i.e. if this type of teaching is necessary due to the nature (character) of the subject.
