A doctoral programme was established in the Faculty of Engineering and Architecture on the 1st of August 2009. With the President’s decision on the 13th of December 2010, the programme became Aalto Doctoral Programme of Engineering. All the postgraduate students of the School of Engineering belong to the doctoral programme. There are two annual application periods for the programme: one at September and the other at March. The goal of our doctoral education is not only to educate researchers and future professors, but also experts and game-changers for the engineering industry and other sectors.

The Director of the doctoral programme is Professor Risto Lahdelma who is responsible for the programme activities and for developing and coordinating the doctoral studies together with the School of Engineering. Every year about 40-45 doctors graduate from the Programme.

The Doctoral Programme of Engineering consists of 8 research fields including land-use planning and transportation engineering, real estate economics, geoinformatics, civil engineering, water and environmental engineering, technology education, mechanical engineering and energy technology. Doctoral studies are available at all the departments of the School of Engineering: the Department of Mechanical Engineering, the Department of Civil Engineering and the Department of Built Environment.

  1. katsokaa alasivut, niihin on ripoteltu info-kenttien sisälle (jotka tietenkin poistetaan lopullisesta tuotoksesta) ohjeita ja ehdoituksia.  Sivujen järjestys on navigaation mukainen, siihen ei saa koskea koulukohtaisesti, jos jotain muutetaan, kaikille tulee sama muutos.
