PhD Programme in Engineering Science
The study program is structured to consist of two parts: instruction component and doctoral thesis work.
Doctoral thesis component. The work on the doctoral thesis consists of research work in engineering science with the purpose of leading to a doctoral thesis in which the results of the research work are documented in agreement with international standards. The doctoral thesis component consists of 150 ECTS. The work on the doctoral thesis should be planned with mobility. An individual plan for the work on the doctoral thesis is adopted on the admission to the study program. A component that helps the PhD student and the faculty to follow up the progress in the project is the midway evaluation. The midway evaluation should be carried out before two år of the study has passed and should be carried out by the end of the second year. The midway evaluation is followed by annual progress reporting.
