Supervisors are internationally renowned experts, who provide support and expertise to the doctoral students. The supervisor is selected together with the dissertation topic. Your supervisor playes a vital role in your doctoral study. He will support and assist you. He will also encourage you to publish your research results in peer reviewed journals and to take part in interesting internships and scientific conferences.
prof. Ing. Martin Hartl, Ph.D.
Martin developed a method, which allows to measure and visualise very thin lubricant films. It was a breakthrough in the field of elastohydrodynamic lubrication and it improved machine design. This method is used by many distinguished universities and research centres.
doc. Ing. Milan Klapka, Ph.D.
Milan helped to develop an energy recovery module of commercial vehicles. Increased efficiency considerably lowered fuel consumption and reduced negative environmental impact.
doc. Ing. Daniel Koutný, Ph.D.
Rapid prototyping and additive technologies
Dan is interested in additive manufacturing of metal parts, which cannot be produced conventionally. He developed and produced satellite antenna console, which represents new generation of components for space applications.
doc. akad. soch. Ladislav Křenek, ArtD.
Ladislav designed burner for hot-air balloons, for which he got Vynikající design (Excellent design) award. The burner is produced and used by one of the biggest producers of hot-air balloons and zeppelins in the world.
prof. Ing. Ivan Křupka, Ph.D.
Ivan designed many experimental devices for investigation of lubricant films. It allowed him to optimize rolling-bearings and automotive transmission mechanisms.
doc. Ing. Pavel Mazal, CSc.
Pavel uses methods of nondestructive testing, especially acoustic emission, for online diagnostics of fatigue of cyclically loaded machine elements. He introduced these methods into areas of industry, where they were not used before.
doc. Ing. Ivan Mazůrek, CSc.
Ivan received nine patents in the field of condition monitoring of chassis and design of hydraulic dampers. He managed design process of several racing sport cars that won the championships.
doc. Ing. David Nečas, Ph.D.
David implemented a fluorescence microscopy method for the study of lubricating films in joint replacements. This helped to understand the role of the individual components of the joint fluid in the lubrication process, which is essential for the further development of implants.
prof. RNDr. Ing. Josef Nevrlý, CSc.
Fluid power systems
Josef helped to develop an energy recovery module of heavy-duty vehicles. Increased efficiency considerably lowered fuel consumption and reduced negative environmental impact.
doc. Ing. arch. Jan Rajlich
Although being educated as an architect he is a renowned graphic designer, typographer and poster artist. He is known for his distinct style, which inclines to literature.
prof. Ing. Martin Vrbka, Ph.D.
Martin developed hip joint simulator. It allowed him to measure thickness of lubricant film in hip joint replacements and thus understand processes of lubrication and wear in artificial hip replacements.
