After graduating from a master’s program, students in the Faculty of Production Engineering at the University of Bremen have the possibility to move on to Ph.D. studies leading to the award of the academic title “Doktor-Ingenieur (Dr.-Ing.)? or “Doktor-Ingenieurin (Dr.-Ing.)?. Ph.D. studies end with completion of an independently researched and academically substantiated thesis – the doctoral dissertation – and a viva.

In principle, you can either study for your doctorate the traditional way by undertaking your own individual research project, or apply for admission to a structured study program offered by a graduate school. See the Doctoral Degree Regulations for admission to doctoral studies and other details.

Get in touch with us. Remember: An admission requirement is that a professor agrees to supervise your doctoral project.
