PhD Conference

Students of the doctoral study programmes at the Jan Perner Faculty of Transport, Faculty of Chemical Technology and Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Informatics develop their communicative competences in the English language through studying subjects focused on the language for specific and academic purposes. The level for completing these subjects has been set to be B2 according to the Common European Framework for Reference (abbreviated as CEFR).  The students can demonstrate their compliance with the requirements of the subject through presentation of a specialised contribution dealing with a topic related to their dissertation theses within a simulated scientific conference followed by a discussion. The conference participants are assessed by a professional testing commission consisting of representatives of the relevant faculty and the Language Centre according to the defined criteria.
