The aim of doctoral study programme is to educate top-level experts in the field of logistics. They will have a broad knowledge of science and social sciences, which will provide them with perspective, understanding of development and trends in the world, in-depth understanding of theoretical and methodological concepts and the ability of independent development of new knowledge and of solving the most complex problems by testing and improving already known solutions as well as suggesting new solutions in the field logistics. They will also be able to manage the most complex work systems and scientific research projects from the broad professional as well as scientific field and to develop critical thinking.
Doctoral study programme Systems logistics lasts 3 years (6 semesters)
AWARD TITLE OF GRADUATE
doctor of science in logistics, abbreviated form: PhD (logistics) or dr.
TYPE OF STUDY PROGRAMME
Programme offeres a part-time study.
Part of the lecture course is in a classroom while the rest is in the form of video-conferencing and specially designed e-material in a virtual electronic learning environment (e-learning).
