CURRICULUM VITAE

Name, Surname and titles: Spalek Juraj, prof. Ing. PhD.

In 1976 he received his MSc. from the Department of Interlocking, Signalling and Communications at the Faculty of Mechanical and Electrical Engineering of the Technical University of Transport and Communications in Žilina. His PhD thesis (1981) entitled "Electronic logical system as interlocking system" concerned the area of safety engineering. His research and pedagogical interests include reliability engineering, fuzzy-set theory applications, and analysis of reliability and safety of electronic systems for safety-related critical applications. It was on this topic that he worked out his second doctoral thesis in 1993 "Electronic systems properties in critical applications". At the present he works as an professor and a head of the Department of Control and Information Systems at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering of the University of Žilina.
