English Language Requirements

Before starting a programme, you need to have a basic knowledge of the Slovak language. Find Slovak courses on Language Learning Portal.


Students holding the M.S. degree (or its equivalent from a recognized engineering school or having substantially completed the requirements) for that degree may apply for admission to the unified Ph.D. programme in Engineering. Admission to the Ph.D. programme is depending upon academic performance at both undergraduate and graduate levels. Those with the M.S. degree in other disciplines may be required to eliminate prerequisite deficiencies. These courses (or exams only) are extra charged. Graduates of foreign universities must submit scores for evaluation before admission.

Requirements for the degree of doctor of philosophy

The doctoral programme should be reasonably compact, continuous, and coherent, and such that a substantial portion be in fact done at and under close supervision by the best faculties of our Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology.

When a student has completed all his/her preparatory programme, he/she must pass a comprehensive examination. This is an investigation of the students breadth of understanding of the field of knowledge of which his/her special subject is a part. A short written report in major and minor or related fields with Summary of possible Dissertation work must be submitted too.

Neither the courses taken nor the time spent in study determines the granting of the degree. It is given primarily for high attainment in some special field of scholarship and for demonstrated power of independent research in a subdivision of this field.

The dissertation is of no fixed length. It should treat a subject from the candidate´s special field approved by the supervisory committee. It should show the technical mastery of his/her field and advance or modify former knowledge, i.e., it should treat new material, or find new results, or draw new conclusions, or it should interpret old material in a new light. The dissertation is passed by of three referees.

The time limit on granting the Ph.D. degree is three years from the time of registration at FEI STU.
