Ph.D.Measurement and Instrumentation

Czech Technical University in Prague - Faculty of Electrical Engineering
The education in the branch Measurement and Instrumentation is focused to following areas: Measurement science, Advanced sensors, measuring instruments and systems, Methods for precise measurement, calibration or diagnostics including digital signal processing. There are two groups of courses in the first phase of study. One is oriented both to special parts of mathematics and/or physics and one is focused to theoretical passages concerning measurement and instrumentation. The final degree examination, in which students should demonstrate their theoretical knowledge. It contains following topics: Theory of measurement, Measuring circuits and Instrumentation, Sensors and transducers, Measuring and DAQ systems, Digital signal processing. However, the dominant part of Ph.D. study programme is dedicated to dealing with problems concerning the topic of dissertation. The integral part of study is also publications of student?s own results, of course. At least one paper in the international scientific journal have to be published (or to be in print) before defence of the disertation. Several publications in international conference proceedings are also supposed. Each of students should study one or two semesters abroad.

Graduate profile

The aim of the doctoral study Measurement and Instrumentation is to prepare scientists having knowledge and ability to solve complex tasks in research and development in areas of sensors, measurement modules, instruments and systems, methods for measurement, calibration, diagnostics and testing signal processing and processing of measurement results. During solving tasks they have to be able to use not only knowledge in measurement and instrumentation, but they have to be able also to implement new findings in area of information technology. The professional profile of absolvents is created of knowledge in theory of measurement, sensor technology, telemetry and data transmission, electronic systems, instrumentation technology, computers, programming and a set of other areas. Selection of studied topics allows them to increase differentially knowledge in selected areas of doctoral theses. In general, students who passed doctoral study in area measurement are supposed to be able to work individually in solving complex tasks in research and development (from problem analysis, through suggestion of optimal solving method to this method implementation) or leading of a research group of scientists. According to their specific orientation the absolvents can become scientific workers in public or industrial research institutions, as academics in universities or as leading experts in R&D in research institutions or in development groups of industry.
