Program Overview

What Budapest University of Technology and Economics says about their program:
"The most important part of the PhD curriculum is the research work carried out by the guidance of the supervisor. The supervisor is a key person during the PhD process, and a thorough cooperation between the PhD candidate and the supervisor is of utmost importance. Additionally to the research work itself, which is the core of the PhD studies, some PhD courses from the basic disciplines of chemistry, or chemical- and bioengineering, as well as from highly specialized topics should be completed. The „directed teaching” is an integral part of the curriculum as well, aimed at broadening the knowledge of the PhD student by teaching undergraduates. This teaching activity is maximized in four hours per week during a semester."
