Doctoral study Textile Science and Technology - Project task

Project tasks of specific research field (in the 3rd, 4th and 5th semester) are suggested by teachers in the field of current scientific research work. Project tasks are adjusted to changes in research projects with the approval of the Council of the Doctoral Study. In consultation with their advisor or teacher, doctoral students can, propose a topic of project task according to their own interest, even if it is not presented in Table beneath. The project task must be carried out by the student in cooperation with the coordinator of the task within a time determined to solve a project task.
