Our graduate school Communication and learning
In 2020, CLS started the graduate school Communication and Learning in Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics (STEM). We have a small but growing number of doctoral students who are involved in postgraduate education and research in, for example, intercultural communication, collaborative learning in innovative learning environments and collaborative writing in engineering education. The purpose of our graduate school is to deepen the understanding of learning processes, interaction and communication in engineering and science.
In addition to our own doctoral students, CLS also hosts a number of interdisciplinary doctoral students. They are based at another institution but want to focus their research on either learning or communication in their subject.
We offer two specializations:
- learning linked to communication and language, or
- learning in an engineering context.
Both are based on practical and applied research and offer collaboration with other subjects within Chalmers' interdisciplinary student program.
As part of further developing postgraduate education, Chalmers has started educational initiatives to strengthen young researchers' generic skills. The business is located at CLS and goes by the name Generic & transferable skills (GTS).
