Graduate School Science and Technology
Graduate School of Science and Technology, consists of eight subjects and postgraduate programs for both licentiate and doctoral level. The Graduate School of Science and Technology is led by a steering committee which, in turn, works on behalf of the Faculty Board of the Faculty of Health, Science and Technology.
The ambition of the graduate school is to provide a strong and creative research environment involving a wider context than each subject can offer doctoral students on its own. Graduate school activities aim to ensure the quality and content of supervision and courses and to be valuable resources for our doctoral students.
Purpose of the Graduate School
The purpose of the graduate school is to serve as a joint setting for doctoral students in the Faculty's science and technology disciplines by ensuring a good introduction for all doctoral students and offering joint courses and other activities based on students' needs and the degree requirements of the graduate school disciplines.
The graduate school can also instruct research disciplines to offer joint courses and other activities based on the needs of the supervisors. Doctoral students from other faculties or higher education institutions can be admitted after application and agreement on funding. For applications to the graduate school, please contact the administrator.
The licentiate programme involves two years of full-time study and the doctoral programme four years. Irrespective of level, the two programmes include a number of courses and an academic thesis project.
