Submission deadline until midnight 10 Jan 2021

What will you learn?

The doctoral degree programme Computer science is generally focused on diverse topics of contemporary computer science and information technology. This includes the research of fundamental theoretical principles on which computer science and information technologies are based (see the Fundamentals of computer science specialization), as well as research and acquisition of new knowledge aimed at the specific use of computer science in other disciplines and the real world (see the Computing Technology and Methodology specialization). The doctoral programme may also include applied research in collaboration with the Faculty's industrial partners if this research brings new (and dissertable) findings in the computer science as a scientific field. The aim of the programme is to educate graduates who have a broad overview in their area of computer science, are capable of independent creative work, analysis of complex problems and realization of original solutions. Last but not least, graduates will have an excellent ability to communicate in the English language in which they conduct their research.

Organizational note: The study is possible in full-time form (preferred option) or in combined form of study (offered to students who, due to work or family obligations, can not fulfill regular duties of full-time study). The same study programme is offered in both Czech and English language variants. The difference between the language variants is on the administrative and legislative levels, but the study and the research are done in English, as it is usual worldwide in computer science.

Practical training

Practical training is not a mandatory part of study.

Career opportunities

The graduates of the doctoral study programme in Computer science are primarily employed as highly qualified specialists in IT research and development and in the academia. The graduates also get executive positions in institutions and companies where the ability of independent creative work, analysis of complex problems, and the ability to design and implement new, original solutions are required. Their employment is not limited to the Czech Republic and its vicinity, but the graduates are being promoted in research in foreign IT companies, in successful startups and also at leading foreign universities.

In general, the graduate is capable of independent creative, scientific, research and organizational work, and is ready to solve challenging theoretical and practical research and development problems in computer science and IT. This predetermines her or him as a specialist or a leading researcher at top R&D companies, as well as a scientist and teacher at universities and other academic institutions.
