Training activities


Doctoral degrees are the stage in university education that is devoted to the acquisition of competencies and skills related to quality research and that trains researchers for the effective transfer of knowledge to society with the aim of contributing to improving citizens' quality of life and social and economic progress. To this end, the doctoral programmes of the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya include training activities that are carried out in parallel with the writing of the doctoral thesis. 

These activities comprise cross-disciplinary training that is common to all doctoral programmes and specific training that pertains to the programme's field of study.
