Ph.D.Transportation Systems and Technology

Czech Technical University in Prague - Faculty of Transportation Sciences
The basic characteristic of doctoral studies in the field of Transportation Systems and Technology is linked with industry with possibility to modify the optional part of the study block to further narrow the field of specialization. Doctoral study program is aimed at scientific research and independent creative work of PhD students, especially in the following areas:Intelligent Transport Systems, Safety and reliability of transport systems,Components and systems of vehicles,Development of transport telematics, Transport systems in the city and in the countryside, environmental impacts, Human mobility in non-urban areas, Design of transport infrastructure, Applied mechanics, modelling in transportation. The field of study is oriented on the opportunity of students to deepen their theoretical knowledge for their specific scientific work to solve research tasks under supervision. Students are trained to deal with complex analytical and decision-making processes in the field of transport systems and technology at the current level of knowledge.

Graduate profile

A graduate of the doctoral program has a deep theoretical knowledge in transport and demonstrates understanding of scientific disciplines in transport and at the frontier of other fields. The graduate has a comprehensive and systematic knowledge of traffic theory, mathematics and mathematical modelling, statistics, physics and mechanics, operations research methods and information technology necessary to manage and innovate transport services. He or she has a deep knowledge of the realization of transport infrastructure and procedural information systems in transport. A graduate will find employment in the creative solution to the problems of transport systems and techniques at scientific research and development centres and departments of universities. He or she can be employed as a top expert for solving complex transportation and land-use planning work and the organization of integrated transport systems, in designing institutions and in government, in senior professional positions to address issues of transportation systems as well as in management positions in industrial companies. He or she is able to develop basic or applied research at technical universities, research organizations and institutes of the Academy of Sciences as well as at foreign research institutions.
