Doctoral Programme in Advanced Materials and Processing

AdvamTech is a PhD sponsored by Fundação para a Ciência e Tecnologia (Portuguese Foundation for the Science and Technology), and it integrates all universities where scientific research in the field of Materials Science and Engineering is performed, namely Universidade Nova de Lisboa, Universidade de Lisboa, Universidade de Coimbra, Universidade da Beira Interior, Universidade de Aveiro, Universidade do Porto and Universidade do Minho.

Seventy percent of all technical innovations are directly or indirectly linked to materials. This percentage has been increasing since 1970 and is forecast to continue increasing steadily until 2030Æ Advanced Materials have been identified by the European Commission as one of the five Key Enabling Technologies.

The doctoral program proposed on Advanced Materials and Processing is in?line with this reality¨ offering a widely interdisciplinary 3rd Cycle¨ built from the competence and experience of the research institutions and academic departments involved.

The program is tuned with high ranking European Universities¨ Institutes and running European PhD network programs¨ turning so the graduates more competitive worldwide and in particular in Europe¨ besides opening routes of R&D collaboration of the personnel involved¨ strengthen so Portuguese competitiveness towards European R&D projects and networking

Access to higher education

The conclusion of this Doctoral degree allows the realization of research activity at post-doctoral level


The holders of PhD degree in Advanced Materials and Processing will possess proper skills for to take positions of responsibility in the development and coordination of scientific research, management of complex processes and high-qualified people, both in the industrial as in technical-scientific research systems at level national and international.
