The doctoral school in microtechnology and nanoscience has the purpose to educate a licentiate or technical doctor. In the graduate school, you develop an ability to plan, conduct, and present research within the subject critically and independently. As a licentiate, you will be able to independently participate in research and development work in the area. With a Ph.D. degree, you are expected to be able to initiate and lead research in academia or in industry. After your graduation, you will be well prepared for future research challenges in microtechnology and nanoscience and you will be able to link research with relevant societal concerns. In your thesis work, you will advance the knowledge of mankind in a specific subject within the field. Read more in the study plan.
