In our doctoral programmes in technology, you will seek solutions to control climate change, to promote wind and solar power, to recycle nutrients and waste, and to secure access to clean water and energy – to name just a few of our focus areas.
During your doctoral studies, you will acquire in-depth knowledge of your research field and be able to apply research methods to generate new scientific knowledge.
In addition to conducting scientific research, your doctoral degree will include tailored, field-specific studies with a chance to acquire transferable skills as well – all in four years of full-time study.
How to become a doctoral student at LUT
You can become a doctoral student by first applying for open positions at LUT (junior researcher, project researcher). Then, you apply separately for a right to complete doctoral studies. This gives you a doctoral student status. Junior researchers can sign an employment contract only after they have secured a right to complete doctoral studies.
You can also study part-time while working outside the university, which naturally requires more time to complete the degree. Interested candidates with their own funding can apply for the doctoral study right after securing their funding and supervisory resources.
