Doctoral study programme Process Automation and ICT implementation is intended for the graduates of master’s study in the field of Automation or related fields, such as Cybernetics, Applied Informatics, Software Engineering, Artificial Intelligence, Compute Engineering, Information Systems, Mechatronics, Measuring Technology and others, including various combinations. The program will build on the knowledge gained during the master's studies and deepen theoretical knowledge related to the graduate’s  scientific work in the field of automated and automatic control, information systems and technology, problem-solving related to  complex systems development, experiments preparation and control in the field of systems modelling, simulation and optimization, methods and problems of integrating information and control systems across all levels of control, methods and techniques used for acquiring knowledge needed for the hierarchical control of processes.

The study program will prepare students for independent problem solving in the field of automation (advanced methods of automatic control systems theory, intelligent control methods, rules and methods for designing of automated and automatic systems and information security of such systems).

The programme prepares graduates for applying scientific methods of research and development of selected problems in automation using information technology for data collection, transmission, storage and processing.

In the first and second term, system of compulsorily optional subjects allows students to decide for one of the three core areas (control of complex systems, intelligent control systems, modern methods of production systems control) representing their further study and scientific activity. Graduates are prepared for scientific and research work in the field of new methods and techniques research and development in the complex control systems based on the latest knowledge in the field of control algorithms and control systems at all levels of control.

They are ready to formulate problems and challenges and to lead research team professionally. They are aware of social, moral, legal and economic context of their profession in a position of scientific researcher.

A graduate's future employment is to be seen in research, scientific or training organizations regardless of whether it is a domestic or foreign labour market, as well as in a position of top developer in industry.

PhD graduates are well applied in practice, not only in our country but also in foreign companies and research institutions. All graduates have been applied as creative and researchers in industry e.g. BMW Muchen, Leibniz-Institut für Festkörper- und Werkstoffforschung Dresden,  Hewlett-Packard Slovakia, VUJE a.s..
