  • Doctoral School no. 2: mechanical engineering, biomedical engineering, automation, electronics and electrical technology, management and quality sciences;

  • Doctoral School no. 4: mechanical engineering, environmental engineering, mining and energy, automation, electronics and electrical technology;
  • Doctoral School no. 5: architecture and urban planning, civil engineering and transport, environmental engineering, mining and energy, management and quality sciences.

What opportunities are there?

We offer over 400 research topics to be completed within the doctoral programme (lists of topics can be found on the website of Doctoral Schools»).

At WUT, doctoral students may complete double doctorates (in collaboration with chosen universities worldwide) and participate in exciting projects, often with renowned Polish and foreign research centres.

Each doctoral student receives a monthly scholarship of PLN 2372. They may also apply for additional scholarships within projects such as Excellence Initiative – Research University, SEED – Internationalisation of Doctoral Schools, and foreign scholarships.

At present, WUT educates doctoral students from 25 countries from 4 continents.
