About this program

PhD in Robotics

Robotics is a modern and promising field that is already changing the world and has an open future - the demand for experts (and well-paid).

Robots ride, heal and help, produce and grow, earn and clean. Almost everything is controlled automatically. And you will be there: to be able to develop, deploy and use them.

We are interesting for foreign students - they study and even work for us.

We list creative topics of doctoral theses.

We are successful in obtaining scientific research projects and involve our students in their solution.

We motivate students to complete internships and study trips abroad.

Visit our website: - where it is possible to get acquainted with our activities in the fields of science and research, publications, cooperation with practice and also annual reports.

The aim of the study is to deepen the theoretical knowledge from the master's study, to understand the context and to combine this knowledge to acquire a mechatronic comprehensive approach to the creation of robotics and mechatronic systems in the field of production, research and development as well as in the field of service activities. Students are widely trained in the field of innovative procedures applied in industrial research and development.

Admission requirements

  • diploma (follow-up) master’s degree;
  • diploma supplement;
  • a document proving the fulfilment of the condition of proper completion of studies in (follow-up) master degree program if education was obtained abroad (not applicable equivalent documents, e.g. from the Slovak Republic).
  • language certificate. The applicant is required to demonstrate their ability to study in the chosen language. In the case of studying in the Czech language, it is sufficient to submit a proof of university degree completed in the Czech or Slovak language; otherwise the applicant must submit a certificate proving their knowledge of the Czech language at B1 level. In the case of studying in the English language, it is sufficient to submit a proof of university degree completed in the English language; otherwise the applicant must submit a certificate proving their knowledge of English at B1 level (e.g. TOEFL or IELTS). If the information on teaching in English is not given on the document of previous education, it is necessary to provide the so-called "Medium of instruction".
