Duration of studies and dedication regime

Duration
The maximum period of study for full-time doctoral studies is three years, counted from the date of admission to the programme to the date of submission of the doctoral thesis. The academic committee of the doctoral programme may authorise a doctoral candidate to pursue doctoral studies on a part-time basis. In this case, the maximum period of study is five years, counting from the date of admission to the programme to the date of submission of the doctoral thesis. For calculating these periods, the date of admission is considered to be the date of the first enrolment for tutorials, and the date of submission the moment in which the Doctoral School officially deposits the doctoral thesis.

For full-time doctoral candidates, the minimum period of study is two years, counted from the date of an applicant's admission to the programme until the date on which the doctoral thesis is deposited; for part-time doctoral candidates it is four years. When there are justified grounds for doing so, and the thesis supervisor and academic tutor have given their authorisation, doctoral candidates may request that the academic committee of their doctoral programme exempt them from the minimum period of study requirement.

The calculation of periods of study will not include periods of absence due to illness, pregnancy or any other reason provided for in the regulations in force. Students who find themselves in any of these circumstances must notify the academic committee of the doctoral programme, which, where appropriate, must inform the Doctoral School. Doctoral candidates may also temporarily withdraw from the programme for up to one year, and this period may be extended for an additional year. Doctoral candidates who wish to interrupt their studies must submit a justified request to the academic committee of the doctoral programme, which will decide whether or not to approve the request. Each programme will establish conditions for readmission to doctoral studies.

Extension
If full-time doctoral candidates have not applied to deposit their thesis by the end of the three-year period of study, the academic committee of the programme may authorise an extension of up to one year. In exceptional circumstances, a further one-year extension may be granted, subject to the conditions established by the corresponding doctoral programme. In the case of part-time doctoral candidates, an extension of two years may be authorised. In both cases, in exceptional circumstances a further one-year extension may be granted by the Doctoral School's Standing Committee, upon the submission of a reasoned application by the academic committee of the doctoral programme.

Dismissal from the doctoral programme
A doctoral candidate may be dismissed from a doctoral programme for the following reasons:

  • The doctoral candidate submitting a justified application to withdraw from the programme.
  • The maximum period of study and of extensions thereof ending.
  • The doctoral candidate not having enrolled every academic year (unless he or she has been authorised to temporarily withdraw).
  • The doctoral candidate failing two consecutive assessments.
  • The doctoral candidate having disciplinary proceedings filed against him or her that rule that he or she must be dismissed from the UPC.

Dismissal from the programme implies that doctoral candidates cannot continue studying at the UPC and the closing of their academic record. This notwithstanding, they may apply to the academic committee of the programme for readmission and the committee must reevaluate them in accordance with the criteria established in the regulations.

Monitoring and evaluation of the doctoral student

Procedure for the preparation and defense of the research plan

Doctoral candidates must submit a research plan, which will be included in their doctoral student activity report, before the end of the first year. The plan may be improved over the course of the doctoral degree. It must be endorsed by the tutor and the supervisor, and it must include the method that is to be followed and the aims of the research.

At least one of these annual assessments will include a public presentation and defence of the research plan and work done before a committee composed of three doctoral degree holders, which will be conducted in the manner determined by each academic committee. The examination committee awards a Pass or Fail mark. A Pass mark is a prerequisite for continuing on the doctoral programme. Doctoral candidates awarded a Fail mark must submit a new research plan for assessment by the academic committee of the doctoral programme within six months.

The committee assesses the research plan every year, in addition to all of the other activities in the doctoral student activity report. Doctoral candidates who are awarded two consecutive Fail marks for the research plan will be obliged to definitely withdraw from the programme.

If they change the subject of their thesis, they must submit a new research plan.

Procedure for assignment of tutor and thesis director

The academic committee of the doctoral programme assigns a thesis supervisor to each doctoral candidate when they are admitted or enrol for the first time, taking account of the thesis supervision commitment referred to in the admission decision.

The thesis supervisor will ensure that training activities carried out by the doctoral candidate are coherent and suitable, and that the topic of the candidate’s doctoral thesis will have an impact and make a novel contribution to knowledge in the relevant field. The thesis supervisor will also guide the doctoral candidate in planning the thesis and, if necessary, tailoring it to any other projects or activities undertaken. The thesis supervisor will generally be a UPC professor or researcher who holds a doctoral degree and has documented research experience. This includes PhD-holding staff at associated schools (as determined by the Governing Council) and UPC-affiliated research institutes (in accordance with corresponding collaboration and affiliation agreements). When thesis supervisors are UPC staff members, they also act as the doctoral candidate’s tutor.

PhD holders who do not meet these criteria (as a result of their contractual relationship or the nature of the institution to which they are attached) must be approved by the UPC Doctoral School's Standing Committee in order to participate in a doctoral programme as researchers with documented research experience.

The academic committee of the doctoral programme may approve the appointment of a PhD-holding expert who is not a UPC staff member as a candidate’s thesis supervisor. In such cases, the prior authorisation of the UPC Doctoral School's Standing Committee is required. A UPC staff member who holds a doctoral degree and has documented research experience must also be proposed to act as a co-supervisor, or as the doctoral candidate’s tutor if one has not been assigned.

A thesis supervisor may step down from this role if there are justified reasons (recognised as valid by the committee) for doing so. If this occurs, the academic committee of the doctoral programme will assign the doctoral candidate a new thesis supervisor.

Provided there are justified reasons for doing so, and after hearing any relevant input from the doctoral candidate, the academic committee of the doctoral programme may assign a new thesis supervisor at any time during the period of doctoral study.

If there are academic reasons for doing so (an interdisciplinary topic, joint or international programmes, etc.) and the academic committee of the programme gives its approval, an additional thesis supervisor may be assigned. Supervisors and co-supervisors have the same responsibilities and academic recognition.

The maximum number of supervisors of a doctoral thesis is two: a supervisor and a co-supervisor.

For theses carried out under a cotutelle agreement or as part of an Industrial Doctorate, if necessary and if the agreement foresees it this maximum number of supervisors may not apply. This notwithstanding, the maximum number of supervisors belonging to the UPC is two.

Permanence

The academic committee of the programme may authorise an extension of up to one year for full-time doctoral candidates who have not applied to deposit their thesis by the end of the three-year period of study, in the terms outlined in the Academic Regulations for Doctoral Studies of the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya. In the case of part-time candidates, an extension of two years may be authorised. In both cases, in exceptional circumstances a further one-year extension may be granted by the Doctoral School's Standing Committee, upon the submission of a reasoned application by the academic committee of the doctoral programme.

A doctoral candidate may be dismissed from a doctoral programme for the following reasons:

  • The doctoral candidate submitting a justified application to withdraw from the programme.
  • The maximum period of study and of extensions thereof ending.
  • The doctoral candidate not having enrolled every academic year (unless he or she has been authorised to temporarily withdraw).
  • The doctoral candidate failing two consecutive assessments.
  • The doctoral candidate having disciplinary proceedings filed against him or her that rule that he or she must be dismissed from the UPC.

Dismissal from the programme implies that doctoral candidates cannot continue studying at the UPC and the closing of their academic record. This notwithstanding, they may apply to the academic committee of the programme for readmission and the committee must reevaluate them in accordance with the criteria established in the regulations.

International Mention

The doctoral degree certificate may include International Doctorate mention. In this case, the doctoral candidate must meet the following requirements:

a) During the period of study leading to the award of the doctoral degree, the doctoral candidate must have spent at least three months at a respected higher education institution or research centre outside Spain to complete courses or do research work. The stays and activities carried out must be endorsed by the thesis supervisor and authorised by the academic committee of the programme. The candidate must provide a certifying document issued by the person responsible for the research group of the body or bodies where the stay or activity was completed. This information will be added to the doctoral student’s activity report.
b) Part of the thesis (at least the summary and conclusions) must be written and presented in one of the languages commonly used for science communication in the relevant field of knowledge, which must not be an official language of Spain. This rule does not apply to stays and reports in Spanish or to experts from Spanish-speaking countries.
c) At least two PhD-holding experts belonging to a higher education institution or research centre outside Spain must have issued officially certified reports on the thesis.
d) The thesis examination committee must have included at least one PhD-holding expert from a higher education or research institution outside Spain who was not responsible for the candidate’s stay abroad (point a) above).
e) The thesis defence must have taken place on UPC premises or, in the case of joint programmes, at the location specified in the collaboration agreement.

    Thesis abstract: This doctoral thesis delves into the knowledge of Venetian glass known as smalti, a unique material with a long history whose main application has been as a tesserae of mosaic cladding. During the Modernism period architecture paid great interest to discontinuous coatings; techniques, such as mosaic, had a revival that came hand in hand with an interest in the materials that traditionally composed it, so the smalti is introduced in this context and also adapts to the new techniques that emerged in this period as the trencadís.The main objectives of this thesis were: to carry out a study to understand the surface characteristics of the material, to review its behavior as part of the trencadis coating and to understand the surface aging of the material. It is developed in two main parts in order to approach the subject from a global perspective. The first was made possible through the study of a set of current glass samples from one of the reference workshops for the manufacture of smalti; based on these samples, a study of their primary surface anomalies and a color characterization was carried out. This material, which is still manufactured today in an artisanal way, is characterized by allowing a wide variation of shades; with the use of a portable spectrocolorimeter a color catalog was made, using the CIE L*C*hº and CIE L*a*b* color spaces, as a tool that allows the subsequent identification and comparison of colors in non-industrialized materials.In a second part, using trencadis specimens made with smalti tesserae, the secondary and tertiary anomalies generated later during the coating process were identified and classified. Subsequently, durability studies of these specimens were carried out with accelerated aging tests that allowed periodic monitoring of the progression of damage to the specimens and the identification of the quaternary anomalies that occurred at this stage. Smalti has proven to be a handcrafted material capable of meeting the requirements of trencadis cladding; for its correct selection, conservation or restoration, a thorough understanding of the advantages and limitations it offers is needed. It was confirmed that the durability of this glass depends on an adequate protection of its surface, that it is crucial to make a correct initial selection of the pieces that present a lower amount of first anomalies and to use the face with the highest quality of the glass as the face side.Key words: smalti, coating, trencadis, color, CIELCh, CIELab, surface

    Thesis abstract: This research proposes a design method for deployable domes from the scissor-type system, starting from the geometry of regular polygons for its configuration. The geometry of the regular polygons inscribed in a circumference, allows to determine the general shape of an arch in the final state of the deployment, defining the number of necessary bars, the positioning of the holes, the distances of the points of articulation, the length of the bar and the necessary opening angle to obtain a specific geometry.Taking the arch as the main structural component for the configuration of domes, the proposed method allows to implement the correlated design with folding floor platforms and folding textile covers to achieve a simultaneous deployment between structure and enclosures.The study develops as part of the constructive viability, an assembly process based on the traditional system to erect arches and domes, that is, through the progressive semi-arches approximation from the floor, to midpoint, at a specific height, in this way, the advantage of deployable structures is used to raise the arches, optimizing assembly times and facilitating the execution method in deployable structures. The method viability and demonstration is verified through the construction of several scale prototypes developed during the investigation that expose the validity constructive, architectural and structuralFinally, the objective is to propose new spatial alternatives for deployable domes, through an interactive table that allows the user to explore different geometries of arches formed with the scissor-type system and applied to an enclosure with specific requirements for height, radius or length of bars.

    Thesis abstract: The construction of mass housings (MHs) solved high demands for housing in urban areas in the 1960s and 1970s worldwide. After decades of continuous use and inadequate maintenance, these MHs have been censured due to their several social, economic, and environmental negative impacts. The mentioned MH¿s deficiencies require MH interior rehabilitation. In Iran, this rehabilitation is currently based mainly on traditional and conventional construction technologies and techniques, most of which neither follow sustainability requirements nor contemporary building standards. In this regard, selection of proper MHs¿ interior rehabilitation procedures, from a sustainability point of view, is a crucial issue that faces several challenges since this is a multidisciplinary and multi-criteria process. To overcome this challenge, several studies applied different building sustainability assessment (BSA) methods and tools. Most BSAs have various shortfalls such as (i) lacking a holistic approach, (ii) neglecting the involved stakeholders¿ satisfaction, and (iii) employing some predefined sustainability indicators some of which are not relevant or applicable for all projects. These BSA¿s shortfalls lead numerous researchers to develop individual models based on MCDM methods to fulfill their projects¿ objectives. The present thesis aims to develop a novel MCDM model based on the MIVES and Delphi methods for holistic sustainability assessment of interior rehabilitation of MHs. This MIVES-Delphi model relies on a comprehensive literature review, seminars composed by experts, on-site surveying, LCA, BIM, user- and expert-based questionnaires, bias reduction, and sensitivity analysis. The model was first applied to the Ekbatan MH case study, which is the largest MH in Iran. Moreover, the author has applied this novel model to assess the sustainability of four different interior rehabilitation scenarios, including three common rehabilitation scenarios plus an innovative one. Consequently, the new model has been validated and the most sustainable rehabilitation scenario has been selected. This validation proves that the developed model can objectively quantify the holistic sustainability assessment of interior rehabilitation in MHs in Iran by considering the involved stakeholders¿ preferences. Additionally, this model has flexibility, adaptability, and applicability for any type of interior rehabilitation procedure in MHs in different geographical contexts as well as different construction phases including design, construction, and rehabilitation. The specific results regarding the rehabilitation scenarios¿ evaluation disclosed that none of the studied three common conventional rehabilitation scenarios could either meet the minimum sustainability target value or serve as proper solutions for interior rehabilitation. On the other hand, the fourth scenario, with a global sustainability index of 0.71, could meet the standard minimum target. This proves a possibility for innovative rehabilitation processes to have positive effects on increasing the sustainability performance in MH buildings. This thesis aims to contribute to moving forward to more sustainable rehabilitation techniques for interior rehabilitation in MHs as well as moving towards more sustainable architecture and construction. Moreover, this thesis opens up opportunities for future research perspectives that could be (i) adaptation and implementation of the developed model to other MHs beyond Tehran in order to consolidate and strengthen the proposed model, and (ii) combination of the developed model with Fuzzy logic to reach a superior methodology. Keywords: MHs¿ interior rehabilitation, Common rehabilitation techniques, Advanced rehabilitation techniques, Sustainability assessment, MIVES, Delphi.

Quality

The Validation, Monitoring, Modification and Accreditation Framework (VSMA Framework) for official degrees ties the quality assurance processes (validation, monitoring, modification and accreditation) carried out over the lifetime of a course to two objectives—the goal of establishing coherent links between these processes, and that of achieving greater efficiency in their management—all with the overarching aim of improving programmes.
