Organisational setting of a PhD
A PhD project in the Graduate School of Science and Engineering occurs in an organizational setting in which four parties contribute to the project’s overall quality: research groups, research institutes, research schools and the Graduate School.
Each PhD student works as part of a research group composed of one or more professors working on related scientific topics. The research group is the PhD student’s scientific home during the four-year thesis research period .
Each research group belongs to one of the faculty's thirteen research institutes.
Research schools are local or national organizations for graduate education and research, focusing on a particular research topic.
The Graduate School of Science and Engineering covers all administrative functions, oversees the process leading up to a thesis defence, organises courses and other educational activities, and serves as a central point of inquiry for all matters that are not directly related to research.
