Postgraduate doctoral study programme

The postgraduate doctoral study programmes have been conducted at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Computer Science and Information Technology Osijek since 2002. The authorisation for the implementation of the postgraduate doctoral study programme for the scientific area of Technical Sciences, scientific field of Electrical Engineering was granted by the University Senate on January 28, 2002.

The postgraduate doctoral study programme in Electrical Engineering, which has been completely harmonised with the Bologna Declaration, has been carried out at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Computer Science and Information Technology Osijek since the academic year 2006/07.  The module Computer Science was introduced and added to the postgraduate doctoral study programme in Electrical Engineering in 2017, which resulted in the study programme changing its name into the postgraduate doctoral study programme in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. The postgraduate doctoral study programme in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science will be conducted with the modules of Power Engineering, Communications and Informatics and Computer Science from the academic year 2018/2019.

Upon completion of the postgraduate doctoral study programme in Electrical Engineering, students are awarded the academic title of the Doctor of Technical Sciences, scientific area of Technical Sciences, scientific field of Electrical Engineering with reference to a specialisation (abbreviated-Dr).  Upon completion of the postgraduate doctoral study programme in Computer Science, students are awarded the academic title of the Doctor of Technical Sciences, scientific area of Technical Sciences, scientific field of Computer Science with reference to a specialisation (abbreviated-Dr).  

Upon completion of the postgraduate doctoral study programme in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, students are able to conduct research projects, develop and apply new technologies as well as to educate professional and scientific staff.

Module Power Engineering

The postgraduate doctoral study programme in Power Engineering extends knowledge relative to energy generation, transmission, distribution, consumption and management previously acquired at the graduate study programme. Furthermore, the study programme is aimed at providing a comprehensive study of physical processes and a theoretical background with respect to the aforementioned questions as well as scientific methods used for development, construction, management, maintenance and planning of the electric power system.

Module Communications and Informatics

The postgraduate doctoral study programme in Communications and Informatics broadens prior knowledge of the information theory, information networks, control, programming and processing algorithms in networks, analyses and applications of modulation processes, state-of-the-art radio communication systems, theory, analysis and synthesis methods as well as design of embedded, distributed and expert computer systems and software solution for system and application software. Moreover, students gain theoretical and scientific knowledge covering the fields of analysis, optimisation, planning and design of communications and information systems, radio communications systems, multimedia systems, process control systems, intelligent and broadband integrated services digital networks, and modern computer architecture and its software.

Module Computer Science 

The postgraduate doctoral study programme in Computer Science extends and deepens knowledge of the algorithmic approach to solving problems, current approaches to programme engineering, methods of analysis, synthesis, foundations of computer systems and data analysis systems embedded in all areas of human activity as well as distributed and expert systems, software solutions system and application support. Students acquire theoretical background and knowledge of scientific methods in the fields of analysis, optimisation, planning and design of current computer systems applicable in the industry and business environments, modern computer architectures and their software support.
