Institute: Department of Doctoral and Post-graduate studies
Number of credits: 48 ECTS credits
Level of qualification according to the National Qualification Framework and the European Qualifications Framework: Third (Doctoral) level, 8-th level of NQF, EHEA third Cycle
Field(s) of study: Automation and instrumentation
Specific admission requirements: No
Specific arrangements for recognition of prior learning: If the previous qualification level was obtained in another country the nostrification by Lviv Polytechnic National University is required. There are no mechanisms for recognizing the non-formal and informal education.
Characteristics of the educational program: The goal of the program is to form the ability of applicants to solve complex problems in the field of automation and computer-integrated technologies, to conduct research and innovation, which involves a deep rethinking of existing and new holistic knowledge, as well as practical implementation of the results. During the program, applicants perform educational and scientific components that provide the formation of general and special competencies in research, synthesis, design of automation systems, computer-integrated technologies and their components. The program contains selective blocks and disciplines for individual choice, which correspond to the topic of student's research. The student must complete the educational component of the program in the amount of 48 ECTS credits, which includes: - academic disciplines - 45 ECTS credits; - pedagogical workshop - 3 ECTS credits. ECTS credits are awarded to the student in case of successful passing of written (oral) tests or examinations in academic disciplines, defense of course works and projects, defense of the report on the workshop. The result of the scientific component is a dissertation, which is an independent research that offers a solution to the current scientific and applied problem in the specialty 151 "Automation and computer-integrated technologies". The results of dissertation must have scientific novelty and practical value and must be published in relevant scientific journals. The final attestation includes public defense of the Philosophy Doctor dissertation.
