About PhD studies
The post-graduate education within Mechanical Engineering is planned so that the PhD student shall gain expertise as well as generic knowledge in the research subject.
The graduate education shall be of international standard. More info on PhD studies at the BTH site.
- After completed licentiate degree graduation the student is expected to be prepared for doing both research and development tasks.
- After completed PhD degree graduation the successful student should be able to independently conduct research activities in industry or academia.
