Technology Innovation

The most popular doctorate is the Doctor of Philosophy or Ph.D. Ph.D.s and other study doctorates prepare graduate student to launch new plans that add to the common knowledge base of the field. Candidates for and holders of Ph.D.s often seek professions as professors and researchers, but many also go on to different roles in the charitable, public, and private sectors.

The field of technology innovation is dedicated to finding groundbreaking ways to apply existing and emerging technologies. Training programs often use a multidisciplinary approach to instruction, encouraging students to think creatively and develop unique ideas.

Europe is, by convention, one of the world's seven continents. Comprising the western most point of Eurasia, Europe is usually divided from Asia by the watershed divides of the Ural and Caucasus Mountains, the Ural River, the Caspian and Black Seas, and the waterways connecting the Black and Aegean Seas.

PhD Degrees in Technology Innovation in Europe 2018. The goal of the PhD programme is to prepare the next generation of leading researchers. The PhD is a programme of independent, self-directed academic research degree, supported by a team of supervisors that makes an original contribution to knowledge written up in a publishable dissertation. The PhD programme also supports the development of research and generic skills to equip you to operate successfully as a professional researcher in any setting. The essential requirement of a PhD is the creation of new knowledge. Being a researcher means developing new ideas and improving understanding through the creation of new knowledge. Your research will inevitably build to some degree on the work and ideas of others, but as a research student you are expected to make an original contribution to knowledge in your discipline. Each PhD student must take a number of online modules and also complete a dissertation. Students must defend their dissertation in a “viva voce” (spoken) examination. The viva voce examination is an intense and challenging experience, but we offer workshops and mock examinations to help our research students prepare and almost all research students who reach this stage go on to successfully complete their degree. Students can engage in research in one of the following fields of study: Marketing Management Information and Technology Education Business Administration Accounting and Finance Programme Outline Core Units UU-PhD-801 Quantitative and Qualitative Research Methods UU-PhD-802 Current Issues in Management UU-PhD-803 Leadership UU-PhD-820 Web-based Information Systems UU-PhD-INTEC-900-1...
