Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, Transport and Aeronautics
Engineering doctoral study program “Transport” (sub-branch: “Auto Transport”) is a higher level study program in the field of transport and communication science. The doctoral study program is implemented by the Institute of Aeronautics of RTU Faculty of Transport and Mechanical Engineering. To provide a high quality methodical control over the study program content and implementation, the program is attached to the branch of mechanical engineering and transport. The study program “Transport” is implemented in cooperation with other structural units of RTU FTME.
The doctoral study program envisages the acquisition of theoretical subjects of fundamental nature and specialized subjects of narrow specialization, which are appropriate to the branch, as well as humanities and foreign languages. The contents of program subjects are regularly improved by completing the study process with the newest and most effective methods and principles of study process organization. Doctoral students work according to individual work plans developed for each academic year. Pedagogical work is an obligatory part of the plan. To acquire pedagogical skills and experience, the doctoral students of the study program are involved in the process of teaching by lecturing separate subjects to bachelor students, supervising laboratory, practical and course works, checking and assessing study and examination works.
Doctoral students are offered to study abroad for different time periods as a result of which they get additional qualifications of different levels. Study courses of appropriate level and scope, which are acquired abroad, can be equated with and included into the doctoral study program
The goal of the doctoral study program “Transport” is to train highly skilled scientists in the field of transport and communication engineering, i.e. professionals able to perform pedagogical and scientific work, solve problems related to scientific innovations, provide the renovation of transport branch infrastructure and supply higher education and scientific research institutions with personnel.
