Chalmers was given the right to confer doctorates in 1940. Since then 3,279 PhDs (Engineering), 353 PhDs, 3 PhDs (Economics), one PhD (Medicine) and 213 honorary doctors have been conferred.
Chalmers organizes a conferment ceremony every spring.
The ceremony 2019 took place in the Concert Hall on Saturday May 18 2019.
After the conferment ceremony there was a banquet in the Restaurant at the Student Union House at campus Johanneberg.
An invitation to attend this years conferment ceremony was sent to all new doctors from Chalmers in 2018 and to those who decided to postpone their conferment from 2018 to 2019.
To attend the ceremony, the application of a PhD degree has to be rewied and issued by February 28.
The processing of your application begins when the information required is complete and takes approximatley two months.
Please note that the processing can be both shorter an longer due to the work load and that an incomplete application will delay the procedure. If you apply for a degree at the end of a semester the time to get your degree will usually be longer.
Next conferement ceremony will be held on June 6, 2020
