Graduate School Commercial Vehicle Technology

Information for Doctorate cadidates

According to the University regulations, doctoral studies in the field of Commercial Vehicle Technology are allocated to one of the participating engineering Departments, depending on the specialization of the research topic:

The doctoral degree awarded will be ‘Dr.-Ing.’ (or alternatively ‘Dr. rer. nat.’ in Computer Science) provided by one of the above mentioned departments. However, the doctorate certificate will disclose that the dissertation has been conducted within the Graduate School Commercial Vehicle Technology. The specialization within the research field will be mentioned.

The doctorate in one of the respective departments is not a taught doctoral program but a research-based doctoral training. Hence, a doctoral candidate must first find an individual supervisor from one of the participating departments accepting him or her as doctoral student. A second supervisor will be nominated either from the same or another department participating in the CVT Graduate School.
