Overview

The EIT Manufacturing (EITM) Doctoral School offers a multiannual programme, which combines Industrial Doctorate studies in the field of manufacturing, done at its partner universities, with a wide range of I&E activities, such as summer and winter schools, seminars, hackathons and other innovative pedagogical approaches. Company visits and professional networking opportunities are also included into the EITM Doctoral School portfolio. International academic and industrial exchanges and a final industrial based thesis complete the programme.

The students can personalize their study plan choosing among the annual offering of the EITM Doctoral School. Students must complete the EITM Doctoral School programme within the timeframe of their PhD studies. At the end of the EITM Doctoral School programme, the PhD students receive the EIT label certificate, as the international recognition of their high education quality achievement. At the end of their PhD studies at partner universities, the EIT label certificate is recognized inside the student PhD diploma supplement.

International mobility

The 15 ECTS of international mobility can be done both at academic and not academic level.

For the students having an Industrial PhD position offered by a specific organization the 15 ECTS of cross-organizational mobility are mainly done at that organization site, while for students with their own entrepreneurial idea the cross-organizational mobility will be defined according to the student project.

Duration of the programme

The student can complete the programme along the duration of his/her PhD studies, with a minimum time of two (2) years.
