Doctorate

9. March 2017

 

Description - Science doctorate programme

 
 

The doctorate programme has a standard duration of 6 semesters. Aside from the completion of a doctoral thesis (dissertation), elective courses must be passed for a total credit of at least 18 ECTS from the current doctoral curriculum (standardised for all disciplines). Detailed information about this course selection can found in the doctoral curriculum. Credits earned and previously applied to attaining a master degree cannot be credited to doctoral studies.

 

The doctorate programme is concluded with a research presentation and thesis defense (Rigorosum) before an examination committee. Successful candidates are conferred the title of “Doctor of Science” (ScD).

 
 
 

Requirements

 
 
 

At least one of the following requirements must be fulfilled before enrolling in the science doctorate programme at Vienna

  1. Completion of university master or teaching certification degree in a related discipline
  2. Completion of equivalent master studies at an accredited Austrian or foreign institution of higher education
  3. Completion of a master programme at a technical college accredited in accordance with the Austrian law governing such institutions “Fachhochschulgesetz § 5 Abs. 3 ”)

In cases not meeting the first stated condition, the applicant may be individually required to take supplemental courses in the doctorate programme.

In the latter two cases, the certificate of admission may include individual requirements for taking supplemental courses. The requirements for graduates of several (Austrian) college programmes are stipulated in regulations issued by the Ministry of Science and Research. The extent of additionally required course credits can be up to 44 semester hours, equivalent to 60 ECTS points. For more information about application requirements, see the Department of Studies and Examinations; foreign students may also refer to the Student Exchange Bureau of the university’s student union (HTU).

 
 
 

Enrollment

 
 

Students must enroll in the science doctorate programme for architecture at the Department of Studies and Examinations (registrar’s office).

A VUT account is registered upon enrollment, which is maintained for the duration of doctoral studies. Since account authorisation takes a certain amount of time, early registration is recommended to ensure a problem-free programme start.

 

The dean’s office is regularly open for doctoral students Monday through Friday 10:00 – 11:00 (stair 3 / 4th floor, white door)
Other office times by appointment only!
