Agreement international doctoral studies - Taiwan

Logo NCTU Taiwan

In October 2018, an agreement was concluded with the Institute of Electronics of the National Chiao Tung University (NCTU), Taiwan, on the joint bi-national supervision of doctoral projects in the field of micro- and nanoelectronics. With this framework agreement, reciprocal research stays in Hsinchu, Taiwan and Aachen with the aim of gaining a doctorate will be possible. Academic supervision will be jointly assumed by a professor from the home university and a professor from the host university, if the admission requirements for doctoral studies are fulfilled at both supervising universities.

Every specific joint doctoral procedure according to § 17a of the doctoral regulations (Cotutelle) requires, in addition to the general framework of the agreement, an individualized stipulation in each individual case with information on the supervising persons, the topic envisaged and the time planning for the respective research stays.

At the RWTH Aachen the supervision can be carried out by a member of the competence field micro- and nanoelectronics. If you are interested, please contact Ms. Elisabeth Böttcher of the PhD office of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology.
