Junior researchers

With an increase in research activities, THWS is continuously strengthening the foundation for successful doctorates. Currently, there are more than 80 ongoing doctorates at THWS in cooperation with universities in Germany and abroad. Many of the supervising professors and doctoral candidates are members of one of the seven graduate programmes in which THWS participates.

New in 2024: Doctoral centre "Sustainable and Intelligent Systems"

THWS has been granted the right to award doctorates for the cross-university doctoral centre "Sustainable and Intelligent Systems (NISys)" by the Bayerisches Staatsministerium für Wissenschaft und Kunst. This means that, for the first time, young scientists will be able to complete a doctorate directly at THWS. The doctoral centre is being set up in cooperation with the THWS, Aschaffenburg University of Applied Sciences and Coburg University of Applied Sciences and focuses on engineering doctorates.
