Study aims

The aim of the doctoral study program Water Management and Water Structures is to provide outstanding graduates of the master's degree with specialized university education in selected and topical areas of the field. These currently include, with a view to maintaining sustainable living conditions, the solution of issues related primarily to the design, optimization, efficiency and quality of operation of existing and new water management systems, such as water management systems, water management structures on watercourses, drinking water supply systems. , waste water removal and treatment, protection of water resources and water quality in the basin, protection against floods etc.
The doctoral study program Water Management and Water Structures is a multidisciplinary program in which students acquire new knowledge in both natural sciences and applied sciences and is also targeted to acquire the necessary habits of students for independent scientific research and creative activities in research and development in solving current theoretical problems and questions arising from the requirements of practice. During the study the student gains both new theoretical knowledge and new own experience from preparation, realization and evaluation of necessary experiments (physical, numerical).
The dissertation thesis is focused on the evaluation of the current state of development of the solved problems in the Czech Republic and abroad, on the definition of the subject and methodology of the topic under development and especially on its own creative contribution. The aim of the study is also to involve students in the preparation and solution of national and international scientific research projects, presentation of achieved results at national and international scientific and professional conferences and their publication in professional and scientific foreign and domestic journals.
