Industrial PhD programme

An Industrial PhD project is a three-year PhD programme where the student is employed by a private company and enrolled in a PhD programme at a university. The candidate divides his or her time between the company and the university.

What's in it for the company

In a dynamic world, it is important that employees have the right qualifications. An Industrial PhD offers the individual employee the possibility to enhance and acquire key expertise and thereby generate knowledge that can be decisive for the company's future success and competitive advantage. 

The company also strengthens its relations to the university environment, opening up to new research and development collaborations and allowing for continuous knowledge exchange.
