Doctoral Degree Program Integral safety


Construction sector faces a number of challenges, including the safety of people and buildings, reducing the consumption of energy and raw materials from non-renewable sources, reducing emissions from building materials and construction, as well as the subsequent use of buildings, repairs and maintenance of dilapidated infrastructure or preservation of architectural heritage for future generation. In response to these challenges, significant scientific progress is being made in the areas of knowledge and modelling of complex multiphysical and social processes. The main goal of the Doctoral Program Integral Safety is to educate qualified professionals who will be able to identify these and emerging challenges and develop adequate solutions in the field of security using the latest scientific knowledge and methods.

The concept of the study is based on a holistic approach - unification and classification of knowledge, deep understanding of the nature of advanced mathematical models and their interrelationships. Students have the opportunity to get acquainted with the latest methods and technologies in the form of "hands-on experience", i.e. they use the products in teaching and in their own scientific activities. During the study, attention is paid to the development of the ability to obtain information from international scientific sources and to improve presentation and publishing skills in English.

In order to achieve the stated goals, the offer of professional subjects with a focus on advanced modelling is significantly expanded at the Faculty of Civil Engineering in doctoral studies. The main emphasis is placed on the creative scientific activity of doctoral students. For this purpose, the study program Integral Safety is provided by a team of supervisors from among the academic staff of the faculty, who are among the top experts in the field. Their erudition and experience are based on the current extensive scientific and publishing activities and international experience.

The study program was prepared to develop students´ thinking and their ability to learn independently in lifelong learning in subjects in the field of construction design and safety issues with an orientation on modern methods of modelling risks, fire, explosion, evacuation and structures. The basis of teaching is a comprehensive overview of the issue and practice of current options for predicting phenomena. Emphasis is placed on the latest knowledge in the field, including broader cultural and environmental contexts, knowledge of technical and technological, artistic, ecological, sociological, demographic and economic disciplines, including disciplines relevant to safety practice and knowledge of legislation. The aim of this study program is mainly the training of experts in the field of construction and education with a focus on safety.
