The doctoral programme in Thermal Engineering at the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC) has been taught since academic year 1989-1990 due to the initiative of a group of lecturers from the Department of Heat Engines at the UPC. Their aim was to propose quality third-cycle studies, focused on deepening knowledge of basic and applied subjects that would serve as scientific and technical support in research tasks in the field of thermal mechanical engineering. See www.cttc.upc.edu http://mmt.upc.edu/?set_language=es

The goal of the programme is to provide basic training in subjects that constitute the scientific and technical support for research, development and innovation in the field of thermal mechanical engineering. The aim is also to provide operational scientific principles that enable correct resolution and a rational basis for design and construction problems in equipment for the generation, transfer and/or recovery of thermal energy from any source of industrial application. The core of knowledge is formed by thermodynamic concepts and the creation of models of heat transfer and mass phenomena.

Doctoral students gain solid training in basic subjects focused on mathematical formulation, numerical resolution and experimental validation of basic phenomena of fluid dynamics and heat and mass transfer. Subjects include: natural and forced convection, turbulence modelling, combustion, two-phase gas-liquid flow, solid-liquid phase change, radiation, porous media, flow dynamics, heat transfer and computational mass (CFD and HT), and high-performance computing (parallelisation).

In addition, doctoral students are encouraged to apply these subjects to some of the social and/or industrial fields in which their development is influenced by a command of the above phenomenologies and methodologies. That is:

I. Cooling (cooling systems using vapour compression, hermetic compressors, absorption cooling systems, etc.)
II. HVAC (ventilation, heating, air conditioning, pollutant diffusion in buildings and clean rooms, etc.)
III. Active and passive solar systems (high-efficiency flat solar collectors using transparent, insulating materials, façades of glazed buildings and with ventilation channels like curtain walls, high-temperature solar ovens, etc.)
IV. Heat exchangers (double pipe, casing and pipes, evaporators, condensers, compact, cooling towers, boilers, etc.)
V. Thermal energy storage systems (for sensitive and/or latent heat using phase-change materials, etc.)
VI. Wind generators
VII. etc.

There is feedback between the teaching activities, basic and applied research activities, and technology transfer that doctoral students could be involved in during the programme.

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.

Legal framework

Admission criteria and merits assessment

The natural route into the doctoral programme is via the master’s degree in Energy Engineering (specialisation in Thermal Energy) at the UPC. In this case, it is not necessary to take additional master’s degree subjects.

In general, the admission criteria are based on the academic background of applicants. Specifically, their academic record and university of origin will be assessed according to their potential tutor, associated with the subject area that is initially proposed for the thesis.

Students who come from other master's degrees must demonstrate basic knowledge of fundamental subjects in the thermal field, such as: thermodynamics, fluid dynamics and heat and mass transfer. Students should have certain knowledge of programming (Fortran, C, C++, etc.), although this is not essential, as specific sessions are organised for students who require assistance in this aspect. Specific knowledge of technology subjects is not required, such as heat exchangers, solar energy, energy accumulation, etc.

To facilitate the task of assessing an applicant’s academic background and suitability for the doctoral programme, and to start previous orientation, candidates should fill in some questionnaires and some exercises. These reveal more about their ability and possibility of successfully preparing a doctoral thesis.

The weighting of admission requirements is:
I. Academic record and assessment of the university of origin (75%).
II. Personal contact through questionnaires, exercises and telephone interviews (25%).

If students who are accepted on the programme need to take additional master’s degree subjects, these will not be worth over 30 credits in total.

Training complements

The academic committee for the programme may require that doctoral students pass specific bridging courses. In this case, the committee will monitor which bridging courses have been taken and establish suitable criteria to limit their duration.

To move on to the tutorial phase, students should have sound knowledge of programming, heat and mass transfer and fluid dynamics. If students lack some of this basic knowledge, they should enrol for suitable official subjects and/or attend seminars and specific tutorials in the research groups in which they will prepare the doctoral thesis.

Enrolment period for new doctoral students

The enrolment period for new doctoral students is between September and April.

More information at the registration section for new doctoral students

Enrolment period

The standard enrolment period is between September and October.

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 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.

Legal framework

Learning resources

Research groups that organise and teach the doctoral programme carry out intense activity that leads to technology transfer in Spain and internationally. In recent years, the average revenue for research and technology transfer concepts has been above 1 million euros/year. Most of these resources have been allocated to training and recruitment of doctoral and postdoctoral students and to the adaptation of experimental and numerical infrastructure so that students can satisfactorily carry out their activities.

Facilities for the doctoral programme:

In addition to the staff resources that are assigned to the programme, there is significant material infrastructure for doctoral students.

The first is the computational infrastructure JFF HPC, which consists of a cluster of parallel computers with two processors per node, four cores per processor (a total of 8 cores per node) and 16 GB of RAM. Infiniband connection network with latencies in the order of 2.25 microseconds, so that the number of nodes can be scaled up considerably with four cabinets (each one can incorporate 32 nodes of height 1U). Currently, there are over 1,000 cores.

The available experimental infrastructure is comprised of a set of specific facilities for testing thermal systems or equipment and with a high level of instrumentation for the acquisition, control and regulation of the units. We highlight:

• Solar cell for testing solar collectors and multifunctional ventilated façades.
• Set-up to test vapour compression refrigerating systems in general and specially hermetically-sealed compressors.
• Set-up to test absorption cooling systems.
• Environmental chamber to test heat exchangers and ventilation systems.
• Set-up to test energy storage systems.

Both the experimental and numerical infrastructure are essential to carry out doctoral theses, as most use a combination of numerical simulation and experimentation to validate the mathematical formulae that have been implemented.

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.
