PhD Programmes

The Central European Institute of Technology BUT offers you unique interinstitutional graduate programme, which, in general, is based on the CEITEC project research programmes. Currently, one doctoral programme is available - Advanced materials and nanosciences. This programme is based on cooperation of two universities and one research institute - Brno University of Technology, Masaryk University and Institute of Physics of Materials of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic.

The programme Advanced materials and nanosciences is composed of two fields of study:

  • Advanced Nanotechnologies and Microtechnologies
  • Advanced Materials
Advanced Nanotechnologies and Microtechnologies

The research is focused on the area of nanotechnologies covering materials and structures to be exploited in nanoelectronic and nanophotonic applications. The research involves the preparation, characterization and analysis of the properties of nanostructures enabling active application of principles, which determine unique and specific properties of nanostructures. Attention will be paid to the research of 2D – OD nanostructures produced by lithographic (top-down) methods and self-organizing (bottom-up) methods. The research will consider semiconductor nanostructures, magnetic and metallic nanostructures, nanotubes and nanofibres, supra-molecules and nano-electronic material on the edge of Moore's law etc.

Advanced Materials

The programme of Advanced materials will be focused on advanced (functional and structural gradient, nanostructural and smart) ceramic materials, polymers, metals and composites. Basic research will be focused on advanced methods of synthesis (or preparing) of advanced materials and multifunctional composites with polymeric, ceramic, silicate or metallic matrixes, characterization of their structures on various dimensional scales and quantifying structure-property-function relationships on the various structural levels. Combined research in the field of advanced ceramic materials, polymeric composites and metallic composites will be focussed on applications in medicine, electrical engineering, power engineering, engineering, chemistry and building engineering.
