Ph.D.Chemistry and Chemical Technologies

University of Chemistry and Technology, Prague - Faculty of Chemical Technology

The study programme aims at the scientific education of graduates based on their quality theoretical knowledge and previous knowledge experience with independent solution of partial research problems in the field of applied chemistry and chemical technology. Students extend their theoretical knowledge of chemistry, physical chemistry and chemical engineering. This knowledge is further developed by means of independent professional work in the field of chemical technology, which enables the students to deepen theoretical knowledge and to gain experience with the application in implementation-specific technological projects. The scientific education itself also includes a complex research project related to chemical technology, which leads to obtaining the original published knowledge of a general nature. Students taking part in elective courses and implementing their own research projects specialise in inorganic and organic technology, homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysis, photocatalysis, heterogeneous non-catalysed reactions, membrane processes, technical electrochemistry, chemical specialties and hydrogen technologies. Graduates of the doctoral study are ready to find employment in the design and optimization of chemical technologies in leading positions in companies engaged in the production or processing of chemicals, in research and development institutions, in state administration and in companies linked to technical chemistry, e.g., civil engineering and automotive industry.

Graduate profile

A graduate of the programme is fully qualified to occupy a leading position in the field of design, development and optimization of chemical technologies as well as for the management of chemical operations, distribution and application of chemical products on the market. The graduate is able to assess the impacts of these activities on the environment and human health. He/she is also fully prepared and qualified for independent research and development activities in the field of chemical technologies using the broad theoretical basis and his/her own experience in obtaining experimental and theoretical data, their critical evaluation and processing, and drawing conclusions of a general nature.
