Doctoral studies organized within the UTCB Doctoral School are carried out in the fundamental field of Engineering Sciences, in the following fields:
Civil Engineering and Building Services
More details about the specializations and topics are here.
The cycle of doctoral studies is composed of the "Programme of Advanced University Studies" (PPUA), with a duration of one semester (https://sd.utcb.ro/en/doctoral-studies/syllabus/) and the "Programme of Scientific Research (PCS)", with a duration of five semesters, completed with the defense of the doctoral thesis https://sd.utcb.ro/en/doctoral-studies/.
The Doctoral School Conference is held every year and features keynote lectures by internationally recognized research personalities and articles by doctoral students that are published in indexed volumes (https://sd.utcb.ro/dsc-2022/).
UTCB is a member of the European University EU- CONEXUS – Smart, urban, coastal, sustainability, together with 8 other partners. Within this framework, a joint Doctoral program of the partner universities will be developed, following the European Doctorate, with the general specialization “Sustainable development of urban coastal areas”.
Ph.D. students can benefit from over 60 international partnerships within the ERASMUS + program for practical or research internships or for co-supervised theses!
Foreign students can follow a program in English or French languages (depending on the supervisor). Also, the possibility of learning Romanian during 1st year is offered for all foreign students.
