Study program of doctoral studies - Environmental protection
The main goal of the study program is to enable students to acquire modern knowledge in the field of environmental protection. The main goal of the study program Environmental protection - doctoral studies is to encourage and affirm the education of personnel with high general scientific ability in the educational-scientific field of natural-mathematical sciences and the scientific field - environmental protection science, by acquiring all the necessary knowledge and skills for independent scientific -research work and successful career development. The education of students during this study program is primarily based on connecting many scientific disciplines, fundamental and applied natural sciences and numerical and advanced methods of analysis, modeling and simulations; training students for analysis, planning and research in the field of environmental protection, including risk assessment and environmental impact analysis, as well as the principles of waste management and renewable energy sources.
The purpose of the study program of doctoral studies - Environmental protection is high-quality education of students for the successful performance of academic and professional work in the field of environmental protection, who will have a leading role in the scientific field - the science of environmental protection, with the application and development of modern scientific approaches, and in with the aim of improving the quality of the environment and gaining improved methods and solutions in the field of scientific and applied research projects that contribute to the critical evaluation of existing systems and decision-making regarding the implementation of measures for their improvement and innovation and the general development of society. Students in this study program acquire all the necessary competencies for higher educational profiles in the field of environmental sciences, a high level of knowledge and understanding, they receive an incentive for independent scientific and research work, creativity and the development and application of original ideas in practice, which qualifies them for scientific-research work in the field of environmental protection, publication of works in scientific journals, active participation in scientific conferences, involvement in scientific-research projects, etc.
In accordance with the principles of the Bologna Declaration, doctoral studies last six semesters and carry 180 ESPB points, in addition to the previously achieved 300 ESPB points in basic academic and master's academic studies.
Upon completion of studies and defense of the doctoral dissertation, the student acquires the academic title of DOCTOR OF SCIENCES - ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENCES.
