Background:

This doctoral programme was first offered in the academic year 1986-1987. At the time, the name of the programme was Water Engineering. The programme, organised by the Department of Engineering Design of the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, was offered under this name in the academic years 1986-1987 and 1987-1988. In the 1988-1989 academic year, the degree was renamed the doctoral programme in Environmental Engineering. From the 1989-1990 academic year, the programme was delivered mainly at the Institute of Applied Petrochemistry (IPA) and later at the Institute of Environmental Modelling and Technology (ITEMA), both institutes of the UPC. Since May 1999, the doctoral degree has been an interdepartmental programme. For organisational purposes, it is currently based at the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering. This degree can be considered the first doctoral programme in environmental engineering offered in Spain.

Based on a call issued in February 1995, the Directorate-General for Higher Education of the Spanish Ministry of Education and Science included the doctoral programme in Environmental Engineering on a list of high-quality doctoral degrees.

Objectives:

The aim of this programme is to enable doctoral students to acquire research skills in the field of environmental engineering, particularly in the following research areas: environmental modelling (atmospheric and water quality), waste management, environmental impact assessment, environmental management systems, noise, industrial wastewater, groundwater, remediation of contaminated soils, and treatment technologies.

Competencies that must be acquired by students (based on the Dublin descriptors). Students must:

• demonstrate systematic understanding of a field of study of the programme and mastery of the skills and methods of research associated with that field;
• demonstrate the ability to conceive, design, implement and adapt a substantial process of research with scholarly integrity;
• have made a contribution through original research that extends the frontier of knowledge by developing a substantial body of work, some of which merits national or international refereed publication;
• be capable of critical analysis, evaluation and synthesis of new and complex ideas;
• be able to communicate with their peers, the larger scholarly community and society in general about their areas of expertise;
• be able to promote, in academic and professional contexts, technological, social or cultural advancement in a knowledge-based society.

Rationale:

In the contemporary world, the importance of environmental issues, both locally and at the global level, is beyond dispute. The importance of environmental issues was clearly recognised in three key Earth Summits: the UN Conference on the Human Environment, held in Stockholm, Sweden in June 1972; the UN Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED), held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in June 1992; and the World Summit on Sustainable Development (informally known as “Rio+10”) held in Johannesburg, South Africa in August–September 2002. The problem of climate change, for which there is conclusive scientific evidence, and the legal framework defined in the Kyoto Protocol also underscore the pressing need to tackle environmental issues. All of these factors clearly justify the need for a doctoral programme that provides students with advanced research training in these areas.

General information

Access profile

Given the goal of increasing internationalisation, and in line with the Pathway to Excellence quality requirements that apply to the doctoral programme in Environmental Engineering, the most suitable academic background for applicants is a master’s degree in environmental engineering, environmental sciences or a related field (engineering, chemistry, physics, etc.). Applicants should be high academic achievers with the solid training needed to take a rigorous, high-quality approach to their proposed thesis topic. They should also have good oral and written communication skills, particularly in English, and be able to articulate and specify their main research interests in the field of environmental engineering.

Output profile

Doctoral candidates who complete a doctoral degree will have acquired the following competencies, which are needed to carry out quality research (Royal Decree 99/2011, of 28 January, which regulates official doctoral studies):

a) A systematic understanding of the field of study and a mastery of the research skills and methods related to the field.
b) An ability to conceive, design or create, put into practice and adopt a substantial process of research or creation.
c) An ability to contribute to pushing back the frontiers of knowledge through original research.
d) A capacity for critical analysis and an ability to assess and summarise new and complex ideas.

Duration of studies and dedication regime

Duration
The maximum period of study for full-time doctoral studies is four years, counted from the date of first enrolment in the relevant programme until the date on which the doctoral thesis is deposited. 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 seven years from the date of first enrolment in the programme until the date on which the doctoral thesis is deposited. To calculate these periods, the date of deposit is considered to be the date on which the thesis is made publicly available for review.

If a doctoral candidate has a degree of disability equal to or greater than 33%, the maximum period of study is six years for full-time students and nine years for part-time students.

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 requirement to complete this minimum period of study.

Temporary disability leave and leave for the birth of a child, adoption or fostering for the purposes of adoption, temporary foster care, risk during pregnancy or infant feeding, gender violence and any other situation provided for in current regulations do not count towards these periods. Students who find themselves in any of these circumstances must notify the academic committee of the doctoral programme, which must inform the Doctoral School.

Doctoral candidates may request periods of temporary withdrawal from the programme for up to a total of two years. Requests must be justified and addressed to the academic committee responsible for the programme, which will decide whether or not to grant the candidate's request.

Extension of studies
If a doctoral candidate has not applied to deposit their thesis before the expiry of the deadlines specified in the previous section, the academic committee of the doctoral programme may, at the request of the doctoral candidate, authorise an extension of this deadline of one year under the conditions specified for the doctoral programme in question.

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 doctoral candidate not having completed their annual enrolment or applied for a temporary interruption.
  • The doctoral candidate not having formalised annual enrolment on the day after the end of the authorisation to temporarily interrupt or withdraw from the programme.
  • The doctoral candidate receiving a negative reassessment after the deadline set by the academic committee of the doctoral programme to remedy the deficiencies that led to a previous negative assessment.
  • The doctoral candidate having been the subject of disciplinary proceedings leading to their suspension or permanent exclusion from the UPC.
  • A refusal to authorise the extensions applied for, in accordance with the provisions of Section 3.3 of these regulations.
  • The doctoral candidate not having submitted the research plan in the period established in Section 8.2 of these regulations.
  • The maximum period of study for the doctoral degree having ended, in accordance with the provisions of Section 3.4 of these regulations.

Dismissal from the programme means that the doctoral candidate cannot continue studying at the UPC and that their academic record will be closed. This notwithstanding, they may apply to the academic committee of the programme for readmission, and the committee must reevaluate the candidate in accordance with the criteria established in the regulations.

A doctoral candidate who has been dismissed due to having exceeded the time limit for completing doctoral studies or due to an unsatisfactory assessment may not be Academic Regulations for Doctoral Studies Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya Page 17 of 33 admitted to the same doctoral programme until at least two years have elapsed from the date of dismissal, as provided for in sections 3.4 and 9.2 of these regulations.

At the end of the selection process, applicants with a score of 150 or more out of 200 will be deemed eligible for admission to the doctoral programme in Environmental Engineering. The list of eligible applicants (ordered by score) will be published.
Applicants will be admitted to the doctoral programme in the order in which they appear on this list until all available places are filled. Eligible applicants who are not admitted to the programme will be placed on a reserve list in order of the score obtained. These applicants may be admitted to the programme if any of the admitted applicants give up their places.

Training complements

Applicants who have completed a master's degree in environmental engineering, environmental sciences or a related field (engineering, chemistry, physics, etc.) do not need to take any bridging courses.
In the case of students admitted with other degrees, the academic committee will review each student's curriculum vitae and indicate the bridging courses that they must take from among subjects of the master’s degree in Environmental Engineering. Bridging courses may provide research or cross-disciplinary training, but in no case may doctoral students be required to enrol for 60 or more ECTS credits. In such cases, the committee will keep track of the bridging courses completed and establish appropriate criteria to limit their duration.
Taking into account the doctoral student activity report, the academic committee may propose measures that complement those specified in these regulations and which result in doctoral students who do not meet the specified requirements being excluded from the programme.
As indicated at the start of this section, when students are admitted, the academic committee of the doctoral programme may define requirements for additional methodological or scientific training on a case-by-case basis according to each student’s academic background and experience. The bridging courses students are required to take will be subjects of the master's degree linked to the programme: the UPC’s master’s degree in Environmental Engineering. Thesis supervisors who note gaps in a student’s training or believe they need additional advanced training in one or more subjects related to their doctoral thesis may require that the student concerned complete additional training specific to their needs. This additional training will involve students attending specialised courses, seminars and/or workshops, and/or completing stays at research centres to complete their training in specific areas related to their thesis topic.
Any bridging courses specified by the academic committee of the doctoral programme as a condition for admission must be completed within a year and a half (18 months). Students who have not successfully completed any bridging courses required within their first 18 months in the programme may be excluded by the academic committee.
In the case of additional training required by thesis supervisors or academic tutors, the time limit is 12 months from the time that students are informed of this requirement. Thesis supervisors or academic tutors may request that the academic committee exclude students who do not meet training requirements within this time period.

Enrolment period for new doctoral students

In September and October (dates to be confirmed each academic year). Extraordinary enrolment period in February.

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.

More information at the PhD theses section

Permanence

The maximum period of study for full-time doctoral studies is four years, counted from the date of first enrolment in the relevant programme until the date on which the doctoral thesis is deposited. 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 seven years from the date of first enrolment in the programme until the date on which the doctoral thesis is deposited. To calculate these periods, the date of deposit is considered to be the date on which the thesis is made publicly available for review.

If a doctoral candidate has a degree of disability equal to or greater than 33%, the maximum period of study is six years for full-time students and nine years for part-time students.

If a doctoral candidate has not applied to deposit their thesis before the expiry of the deadlines specified in the previous section, the academic committee of the doctoral programme may, at the request of the doctoral candidate, authorise an extension of this deadline of one year under the conditions specified for the doctoral programme in question.

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 doctoral candidate not having completed their annual enrolment or applied for a temporary interruption.
  • The doctoral candidate not having formalised annual enrolment on the day after the end of the authorisation to temporarily interrupt or withdraw from the programme.
  • The doctoral candidate receiving a negative reassessment after the deadline set by the academic committee of the doctoral programme to remedy the deficiencies that led to a previous negative assessment.
  • The doctoral candidate having been the subject of disciplinary proceedings leading to their suspension or permanent exclusion from the UPC.
  • A refusal to authorise the extensions applied for, in accordance with the provisions of Section 3.3 of these regulations.
  • The doctoral candidate not having submitted the research plan in the period established in Section 8.2 of these regulations.
  • The maximum period of study for the doctoral degree having ended, in accordance with the provisions of Section 3.4 of these regulations.

Dismissal from the programme means that the doctoral candidate cannot continue studying at the UPC and that their academic record will be closed. This notwithstanding, they may apply to the academic committee of the programme for readmission, and the committee must reevaluate the candidate in accordance with the criteria established in the regulations.

A doctoral candidate who has been dismissed due to having exceeded the time limit for completing doctoral studies or due to an unsatisfactory assessment may not be Academic Regulations for Doctoral Studies Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya Page 17 of 33 admitted to the same doctoral programme until at least two years have elapsed from the date of dismissal, as provided for in sections 3.4 and 9.2 of these regulations.

    Thesis abstract: The leather industry faces global challenges related to its sustainability credentials due the significant waste generated throughout the leather production processes. In the context of contemporary environmental policy, which is increasingly focused on sustainable production and consumption, the need to understand and mitigate environmental impacts associated with leather has become a strategic and economic imperative. In this respect, a comprehensive "gate-to-gate" life cycle assessment (LCA) was conducted following the newly released Leather Product Environmental Footprint Category Rules (PEFCR). The analysis aimed to evaluate the environmental impacts of leather production, with a specific focus on New Zealand's leather production industry, mainly due to its agriculturally oriented economy and large size of livestock sector.This thesis builds upon this foundation by addressing the issue of solid waste in the leather industry. Therefore, a waste valorization strategy was investigated to convert unavoidable waste into valuable resources through the production of new, value added composites, which involves incorporating leather waste (BF) into virgin and recycled high-density polyethylene (HDPE). The focus of this thesis is to analyze environmental impact of these novel composites, to improve the implementation of circular economy principles, within the context of their use in automotive bumper production. The environmental impact of these novel composites was compared to conventional polypropylene (PP), bumpers, by performing a cradle-to-gate life cycle assessment (LCA). The thesis also aims to provide a contribution to LCA methodology applied to composite materials, by adopting various functional units, such as mass, volume, and the volume of raw material fulfilling a specific impact strength requirement.The in-depth analysis of mechanical and thermal properties of the BF/HDPE composites highlights the composite’s potential for industrial applications that require high mechanical strength and low thermal conductivity. The incorporation of leather waste not only enhances material properties, but also contributes to environmental sustainability by converting unavoidable waste into a value added product. The environmental assessment, adopting a cradle-to-gate LCA with various functional units, indicates that composites made from recycled HDPE and leather waste have a lower environmental impact than those from virgin materials. The only exception is when the material's impact strength is a key factor in the functional unit, due to the higher impact strength of HDPE-BF composites. In all cases, increasing the content of recycled materials in the bumpers increases its environmental performance, supporting the advancement of circular economy principles in the automotive sector.The research highlights the significance of choosing an appropriate functional unit, based on specific applications such as automotive bumpers, in comparing the environmental footprint of innovative composite materials with that of traditional materials. Broadening the scope of evaluation to include various functions yields a more realistic scenario, but it leads to higher uncertainties in the results as well.

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.
