Occupational profiles of graduates with examples
Graduates from the doctoral study programme are trained to independently work in research, development, or management.
They are able to solve and/or to lead teams solving advanced conceptual, research, development, or production problems in the area of contemporary information technology and its applications.
They can be engaged to work on creative tasks, to lead research and development teams, or to work in management of companies or organizations whenever there are required abilities to work in an independent and creative way, to analyze complex problems, and to propose and realize new and original solutions. Graduates from the doctoral study programme can also teach and/or scientifically work at universities.


The scope of a doctoral state examination is determined by the individual study plan of the student being examined and by the theme of his/her future dissertation thesis. Within the examination as well as within a report on the theme of the dissertation thesis, the student proves his/her knowledge of the state of the art methodologies, theories, and their applications on a level exceeding the level common in MSc study programmes. The doctoral state examination also encompasses an evaluation of the presumed goals of the future dissertation thesis of the student, of the chosen solution method, and of the so far obtained original results.
