The aim of the study is to provide high level knowledge in the fields of mathematics, mechanics, material science, system theory, control theory, informatics, operation research, optimization, decision support and planning methods.
These courses include transportation logistics and vehicle sciences and provide knowledge about transport networks, logistics processes, vehicles structures, and their theoretical, planning, modeling, analysis and measuring aspects.
Transportation science PhD programme
The indicated study plan is a general recommendation for the PhD students. The courses (except Research techniques) can be eventually chosen by the PhD students from the lists.
Please note that only those courses will be started (except from the generally recommended courses), which are agreed with the supervisor, with the lecturer of the course (in advance) and are chosen by a predefined minimum number of PhD students.
In case of no special course choice, the recommended courses of the indicated PhD study plan will start.

RESEARCH PROGRESS REPORT
Students of the Kandó Kálmán Doctoral School have to report their progress in each semester in form of a verbal presentation. Details about the requirements and the structure of the presentation can be downloaded.
INITIATION OF THE PHD PROCESS
In the ideal case, after 4 years the PhD student can start the process, if he/she meets the minimum requirements, as number of approved publications (e.g. with impact factor in a peer-reviewed journal) and 2 foreign language certificates.
SUBMISSION OF THE DISSERTATION
The last step in achieving the PhD title is writing and handing in the dissertation. Together with the dissertation PhD students must produce a thesis booklet and a summary of their research. Furthermore the PhD student must meet the minimum requirements set for publications.
