Information on PhD study

The Institute of Measurement Science, Slovak Academy of Sciences (IMS SAS) was the training institute for PhD study and the seat of the commission for conferring scientific degrees in the study program “Measurement Technology” since 1962. Since 1985 the Institute had the rights to conduct PhD study in “Bionics and Biomechanics”. After the new Education act in Slovakia was accepted in 1996, in a new structure of study fields the Institute participated in the study programs “Measurement Technology” (in cooperation with Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology, Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava) and “Bionics and Biomechanics” (in cooperation with Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, Technical University in Košice). This education was conducted during the validity of the Education act until 2010. Since March 2006 the Institute was accredited as an external educational institution of Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology, Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava to conduct full-time and external study in the program 5.2.54 „Measurement Technology“ and it was reaccredited in 2009 and 2016 for the next period according the Education act. Since 2020 the Institute is an external educational institution of Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology, Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava for the study program “Measurement Technology” (within the study field “Electrical and Electronics Engineering”) and an external educational institution of Faculty of Mathematics, Physics and Informatics of the Comenius University in Bratislava for the study program “Applied Mathematics” (within the study field “Mathematics”). The PhD study conforms to the study rules of the above mentioned universities and obeys “Internal system for PhD study quality assurance” (in Slovak).
