DOCTORAL STUDIES (PhD)

 

Doctoral studies in the field of technologies, management and design of furniture and wood products last for 3 years (6 semesters), and are designed so that students take a total of 5 subjects during the first year, while during the second and third years they perform technical and laboratory research, writing and publication of scientific papers, and participate in national and international conferences and other events.

The study program is designed so that students select an elective group that they want to study for which they want to specialize at the beginning. We offer 6 elective groups depending on the preference and affinity of candidates. After creating and defending their doctoral dissertation, candidates receive the academic title:

DOCTOR OF BIOTECHNICAL SCIENCE.
