Doctoral college iDok

Eine Frau hält einen Vortrag über die kooperative Promotion an der TH Aschaffenburg.

Targeted support from the beginning

With the iDok doctoral college, doctoral students at the Aschaffenburg UAS receive extensive support in all phases of the doctoral project – from planning all the way trough to the successful defence and publication of the dissertation.

Doctoral students work on their doctoral topic together with professors from the doctoral college. The doctoral candidates receive comprehensive help in finding a suitable supervisor at a partner university. The doctorates are supervised by at least two independent researchers from two universities - an important advantage of the cooperative doctorate. The members of the iDok doctoral college also support the doctoral researchers as mentors. The professors from the doctoral college are committed to financing the doctoral project through third-party funding.

The opportunity to present my doctoral topic to an expert audience together with my supervisor Prof. Dr.-Ing. Zindler at a renowned international conference was a real highlight.

Promoting knowledge transfer

The interdisciplinary programme offers doctoral students the opportunity to establish first contacts in industry and economy at an early stage. Doctoral students gain access to professional networks and corporate contacts that are indispensable for their later professional careers. The ZeWiS (Centre for Scientific Services) promotes intensive cooperation between science and entrepreneurial practice in the region and thus has an extensive network with business and industry.

iDok promotes the interdisciplinary exchange of scientific experience. At expert meetings, cluster seminars, impulse lectures and poster slams of iDok, doctoral students have the opportunity to present their research activities in front of expert groups.

Ongoing doctoral theses

In recent years, Aschaffenburg UAS has been able to motivate more than 40 master's students to go on to earn doctorates. Currently, more than 50 doctoral projects are underway. More than 40 doctoral students have already successfully completed their doctorates at Aschaffenburg UAS.
