Profile

The doctor study programme is devoted to the preparation of the high quality scientific and research specialists in various branches of microelectronics and electrotechnology, namely in theory, design and test of integrated circuits and systems, in semiconductor devices and structures, in smart sensors, in optoelectronics in materials and fabrication processes for electrical engineering, and in sources of electric energy.
The aim is to provide the doctor education in all these particular branches to students educated in university magister study, to make deeper their theoretical knowledge, to give them also requisite special knowledge and practical skills and to teach them methods of scientific work.

Key learning outcomes

The doctors are able to solve scientific and complex engineering tasks from the area of microelectronics and electrical technology
Wide fundamentals and deep theoretical basis of the study program bring high adaptability and high qualification of doctors for the most of requirements of their future creative practice in all areas of
microelectronics and electrotechnology.
The doctors are competent to work as scientists and researchers in many areas of basic research or research and development, as high-specialists in the development, design, construction, and application areas in many institutions, companies, and organisations of the electrical and electronics research, development, and industry as in the areas of electrical services and systems, inclusively in the special institutions of the state administration. In all of these branches they are able to work also as the leading scientific-, research-, development- or technical managers.

Occupational profiles of graduates with examples

The graduate of the doctoral study programme is able to solve scientific and complex engineering tasks in the field of microelectronics and technology for electrical engineering. The graduate has reached a high level of general theoretical knowledge in the branch and is further specialized in the area of his/her dissertation thesis.
Having broad theoretical knowledge, the PhD graduate is capable of meeting work requirements of both fundamental and applied research. The PhD graduates are sought out as specialists in all branches of microelectronics and technology. They are able to work as research workers, as members of management staff in fundamental or applied research, as design, construction or operation specialists in various research and development institutions, electronics manufacturing firms, and to work for various users of electronic systems and devices. They will be able to employ advanced technology everywhere in a creative way.

Supervisor

Issued topics of Doctoral Study Program

  1. New circuit principles for low-voltage low-power analog circuits design

    Utilizing new circuit principles for low-voltage low-power analog circuit design. These circuits serve mainly in biomedical area. Theoretical design and experimental evaluations using program Cadence with technology 0.18 um from TSMC. The verified design of a current conveyor should be the main result.

    Tutor: Khateb Fabian, doc. Ing. et Ing., Ph.D. et Ph.D.

  2. New function layer of solar cells

    Research and development of function layer in the structure of the solar cell for absorbtion of light and free charge carier separation.

    Tutor: Vaněk Jiří, doc. Ing., Ph.D.

  3. Operational amplifiers design techniques with extremely low voltage supply

    New design techniques for operational amplifiers with extremely low voltage supply. The voltage supply target is in range of 0.5-0.3V with power consumption in range of nanowatts. The function of the proposed structures will be described and simulated by using 0.18 µm CMOS technology from TSMC. The verified design of this operational amplifier should be the main result.

    Tutor: Khateb Fabian, doc. Ing. et Ing., Ph.D. et Ph.D.
