Ph.D. program

The Technical Cybernetics programme is the one of the most productive programmes at the faculty of Mechanical engineering according to the number of successfully defended theses. The main characteristics of the programme is study of system control in a broader sense (for technical and/or nontechnical applications). This makes the programmer strongly multidisciplinary.

The general topics in the programme (it also includes mathematics, that is not listed)

  • Artificial intelligence in engineering applications
  • Measurement of  physical quantities
  • Models in control 
  • Safety and reliability of technical systems
  • Automatic control
  • Adaptive control systems
  • Intelligent measuring
  • System identification
  • Electrical machines and drives 
  • Electromagnetic compatibility


Students have to finish 4 to 6 courses from our department and other departments (and/or universities). The courses should be selected with assistance of a supervisor.
