The research project is about investigating and developing smart methods for setting up manufacturing lines based on the virtual 3D model of the manufactured parts. CAD model of the required parts. After a new product is designed, the process planning software helps the engineers to create the production line needed to manufacture it. The program aims to investigate to what extend artificial intelligence can aid this process. The goal is to develop methods for analyzing the part’s CAD model and using this information to create a production line for this product trough the usage capabilities of software for virtual manufacturing software tools.

The students will work with the Doctoral School at the Faculty for German Language Engineering and Economics Education in a young and ambitions team. The school receives support from the German Academic Exchange Office, which promotes joint doctoral supervision with German professors. The program runs in collaboration with the industry, which will provide real life case studies and scenarios.

The applicants should send per e-mail their CV, their Master’s and Bachelor’s certificates, a motivational letter emphasizing the match between the applicants’ skills and the required qualifications for the program, as well as the applicants’ soft skills such as leadership, creativity and self initiative. Additional documents proving experience such as list of publications and recommendations are welcome.


Additional Information


The doctoral studies are under a joint program between the Technical University of Sofia and the Industry, where the partner is Haycad Infotech. The doctoral students will benefit from this cross-sectoral collaboration, acquiring both academic skills for in-depth research, clarity of presentation, and collaboration with peers, as well as teamwork, customer contacts, and working on practical problems.

The program supports joint supervision from a German professor. Research stays of up to two months with the German partners are strongly encouraged.

Selection process

The selection will be based on a CV and motivational letter, which emphasizes the match between the applicants’ skills and the required qualifications for the program, as well as the applicants’ soft skills such as leadership, creativity and initiative. The successful candidates will be interviewed online or over the telephone for a final selection.
