Doctorate ACS

Students in Ph.D. programs

The cycle of doctorate university study is organized by the SD_AC in two stages which are obligatory for all Ph.D. students:
  • The learning program based on advanced university studies with a duration of 3 months; this program must be completed by Ph.D. students in their first year of the doctoral study;
  • The individual scientific research program with duration of 5 semesters.

The learning program based on advanced university studies is based on the individual learning plans which are defined by the scientific coordinators for each of their Ph.D. students.

The individual learning plan, defined by the scientific director, contains 5 obligatory subjects that must be passed by the Ph.D. student after completing the learning program based on the 3-month duration advanced university studies (PPA), initiated in the first year of doctoral studies:

  • two specialty subjects (8 ECTS each one) established by the scientific coordinator for the Ph.D. student, and which might be:
    • a course created by the scientific director for a research area in the doctorate domain she / he is coordinating in the SD_AC, and taught to the Ph.D. students in the PPA;
    • a course from the master programs of the faculty of Automatic Control and Computers or of other faculties in UPB, in the country or abroad;
    • a compact course module (8-16 hours) in the master programs of the faculty of Automatic Control and Computers or of other faculties in UPB, in the country or abroad;
    • an individual specialty study: analysis of scientific articles, a specialty study, scientific papers at conferences, monograph chapters and patents that have been recommended to the Ph.D. student by the scientific director.
  • the subject „Research methodology and scientific authorship” (4 ECTS);
  • the subject „Ethics” (6 ECTS);
  • the subject „project management” (4 ECTS).

Finalizing PPA with the global result PASSED allows obtaining 30 ECTS.

The credits obtained by a Ph.D. student in a license or research master program or having completed  previous research stages in prestigious universities or research institutions in the country or abroad can be recognized as equivalent to some of the activities in a PPA program. The Ph.D. student can also equivalate, with the scientific director’s approval, some of the course hours in the PPA with her / his participation at: (1) scientific presentations in technical or plenary sessions of international scientific events (workshop, conference, symposium, congress) on the field of the doctoral thesis; (2) summer schools, exploratory workshops, specialization programs in advanced technologies / development tools organized by universities and / or companies well appreciated in technical domains

The completion pf the PPA cycle of doctoral studies failing to obtain the global result PASSED does not prevent the Ph.D. student to begin her / his individual scientific research program; the student has the possibility to obtain the passing result in any of the following years of the doctoral stage, before the public defence of the thesis.

The individual scientific research program (PCS) is realized by the Ph.D. student in 5 equal time periods, and is validated by evaluating 5 related research reports that are presented by the Ph.D. student to her / his advisory team as follows:

  • one report in the first year of study, 6 months after PPA completion; this first report must describe: the title of the doctoral thesis, the important lines of the future thesis, the general knowledge in the treated domain, the objectives of the research and study, the research methodology proposed, the time diagram of activities foreseen;
  • three reports presented as follows: one in December of year II of doctoral studies, the next one in June of year lI of doctoral studies, and the last one in December of year III of doctoral studies;
  • the doctoral thesis submitted for analysis to the advisory team in order to obtain the approval for public defence (the final report).

Each report in the PCS stage is evaluated with one of the qualificatives: ”Very good”, ”Good”, ”Satisfactory” or ”Not satisfactory”. For each validated report, the Ph.D. student accumulates 30 ECTS. In the case that one report was not accepted (being evaluated as ”Not satisfactory”), the Ph.D. student is allowed to improve and present it a second time, following the same procedure, within 30 days from the date it was rejected. If the report is rejected the second time, the proposal is issued to exclude the Ph.D. student from the doctorate program.

Prior to the thesis’ public defence in front of the advisory team, the PPA stage must be finalized by ther Ph.D. student with the global result PASSED, and the PCS stage must not include a research report evaluated as ”Not satisfactory”.

SD_AC recommends the following framework for the content of the doctorate Thesis, which must be realized by the Ph.D. student at a high quality level, with original contributions during the individual scientific research programs:

  • The context and justification of the research include: the context of research; the applicability area; the problems approached; the work hypotheses and constraints; the global objective.
  • The analysis of existing ww state of the art in the domain of the thesis includes: the analysis methods; the results of the analysis; the limitations relative to the proposed global objective.
  • The specific objectives proposed for the doctorate research include: the research problems; the results to be obtained; the specifications for objective fulfilment.
  • The elements used to reach the proposed objectives include: the research methodology; the implementing framework; the development of models, architectures, platforms, hardware and software systems, and interfaces.
  • The verification and validation elements include: the experimental scenarios and protocols; the results obtained; the critical analysis of results; demonstrating the achievement of the objectives.
  • The synthesis, conclusions and future development perspectives include: the report of results obtained; the limits of the research carried out; the continuation perspectives; the scientific contributions brought and the elements of originality; the bibliography studied; the report of scientific production and applied research (publications, communication of results, patenting, implementing).

Useful Documents

At the end of the year 2018, 249 Romanian Ph.D. students and 15 foreign Ph.D. students were included in the doctorate study programs ”System Engineering” (SE) and ”Computers and Information Technology” (CIT) organized in the Doctoral school of Automatic Control and Computers. From this total number, 107 work out theses in the SE domain, and 157 in the CIT domain.
