The fields of transport and maritime sciences integrate knowledge of technical-technological systems and processes in the maritime, transport, traffic, and transport logistics industries. The need for a high quality and modern doctoral degree programme that aims at the acquisition of relevant knowledge in the fields of transport and maritime sciences is dictated by highly dynamic development in these fields. In fact, both can be classified among the most important economic activities worldwide. Science-based solutions to highly complex problems in the fields of transport and maritime sciences can only be provided by experts at the highest level of education. The doctoral degree programme enables doctoral students to acquire complex knowledge at the highest level of theoretical and research expertise.
The doctoral programme in Transport and Maritime Sciences is organized and carried out by the Faculty of Maritime Studies and Transport in cooperation with renowned foreign experts. The programme integrates two fields: maritime sciences and transport. In the field of maritime sciences, doctoral students will acquire relevant knowledge in navigation, marine engineering, port systems, and protection of the marine environment; in the field of transport, doctoral students will acquire relevant knowledge in traffic technology, transport logistics, traffic safety, and integrated traffic policy, all of which enable creative and independent research of scientific research problems, critical evaluation of research results, development of new research methodology, and transmission of new technologies and knowledge into practice.
