Promotion Process

The doctorate is the highest academic degree awarded at the TUM Campus Straubing. This is proof of their ability to work independently on scientific projects.

Depending on the topic of the dissertation, the TUM Campus Straubing offers a doctorate in natural sciences (Dr. rer. nat.), engineering (Dr.-Ing.) or economics (Dr. rer. pol.).

Start of the Promotion

At the beginning of your doctorate, you must first find a doctoral supervisor to supervise and support your project. You will find possibilities and ways to approach this as well as further information for applicants on the homepage of the TUM Graduate School. You will find advertised doctoral positions at the TUM Campus Straubing in the job offers.

Once you have found a doctoral position, the following steps will follow at the beginning of the doctorate:

  • Entry in the doctoral list
  • Find a Mentor
  • Matriculation (optional)
Execution of the Promotion

In order to successfully complete your doctorate, you must, in addition to submitting your dissertation, complete an accompanying qualification programme (link to the download page), which contains various mandatory elements.

These should promote the professional and interdisciplinary skills of the doctoral candidates and thus support the doctorate in the best possible way. In addition, there are various optional offers as well as special financial support, e.g. the proofreading service and internationalisation measures.

The GCS team will be happy to advise you on the mandatory and optional elements of the TUM-GS qualification programme.

After submission of the dissertation and opening of the doctoral procedure, the examination board must be appointed by the Institute Council. The dissertation must be submitted to the Examination Office (link) no later than 14 working days before the next meeting of the Institute Council.

The TUM doctoral regulations (link to download page) must be observed in the composition of the examination board. If you have any questions, please contact the GCS team.
