Conditions of the studies:

ICPF is accredited in 7 study programs together with the University of Chemistry and Technology in Prague (Analytical and Physical Chemistry, Biotechnology, Environmental Sciences, Chemistry, Chemical and Process Engineering, Chemistry and Chemical Technologies) and in 2 with the Faculty of Science of Charles University (Environmental sciencesPhysical Chemistry) and the doctoral study always takes place according to the rules of the respective university. At the given university, you take lectures and have to pass exams. After the state doctoral examination and the defense of the dissertation, you will receive the title “Doctor” (Ph.D.). Financial conditions, dormitory accommodation, student tickets for Prague integrated transport, insurance, taxes, etc. are similar to the conditions of other doctoral students working at the universities. Upon agreement, it is possible to complete doctoral studies at any other university, apart from those listed above.

The dissertations prepared at ICPF typically use state-of-the-art technology and are often linked to the urgent ecological and technological problems of today. Contact with the international scientific community through conferences and internships is a matter of course. The results of students’ work are presented at the annual Bažant Conference for doctoral students.
