Training through research

Graduate engineers with a research master's degree can engage in an individual research project lasting approximately 3 years to obtain a PhD.

Currently, the school has over thirty teacher-researchers who are eligible to supervise research and mentor more than fifty doctoral candidates, who conduct their theses in the partner laboratories of the school and in collaboration with the doctoral schools.

Doctoral Charter

The doctoral charter constitutes an ethical agreement between the PhD candidate, his/her supervisor, the director of the doctoral school, and the head of the hosting laboratory (or team).

It serves as a guarantee of excellence by outlining the rights and responsibilities of each party. 

The preparation of a PhD should be part of a personal and professional plan with clearly defined objectives and resources. This agreement aims to fulfil that purpose, willingly entered into by all parties involved.
