Doctoral programme of Natural Science - Faculty of Environmental and Regional Sciences and Education
The doctoral programme of Natural Science at the Faculty of Environmental and Regional Sciences and Education (URBI) provides students with a scientific education that reflects high international standards. This programme focuses on animate and inanimate nature described, measured and explained using advanced scientific theories and methods. In their doctoral thesis, students learn to independently master new scientific questions. They acquire new knowledge and widen their methodological competences in a compulsory subject, in which they also write their doctoral thesis, as well as in an elective course. The doctoral programme promotes students’ development of subject-specific scientific working methods. They focus on formulating hypotheses, designing experiments, applying analytical and quantitative methods, paradigms of logics, modelling and simulation, computer-based processing and visualisation. By regularly presenting their research results and through exchange with the scientific community (in lectures, special congresses and in scientific journals), doctoral students acquire skills in written and oral knowledge transfer. In addition, they are proficient in co-operative networking and dealing with any necessary interdisciplinary aspects. In addition to subject-specific knowledge, students further develop interdisciplinary key qualifications when writing their doctoral thesis (project and time management, troubleshooting and flexibility).
Graduates of the doctoral programme of Natural Science from the Faculty of Environmental and Regional Sciences and Education, are highly qualified junior researchers with a broad scope of specialist and methodological skills, which they can apply to specific questions. Students are able to critically analyse, evaluate and connect complex ideas. Due to their ability to conduct independent and innovative research, they will be able to substantially contribute to an (inter)national knowledge economy.
