The Dual Degree program between TU Delft and UNICAMP
In 2013, Delft University of Technology (The Netherlands) and University of Campinas (Brazil) initiated a “Dual Degree PhD program”, as part of their extensive collaboration which has been on-going for more than a decade. This program is focussed on biobased economy, i.e. on biofuels and biochemicals. Both universities believe this program provides an excellent opportunity for students looking for international experience in addition to intensifying the academic collaboration between research groups.
What is a Dual Degree
It’s a four year PhD project with joint supervision, following normal PhD regulations from both universities.
And the PhD candidate divides the time between TU Delft and UNICAMP (at least one year abroad).
The research should result in one (English) thesis and, if possible, one (English) defence.
And when successful, two separate doctoral diplomas will be issued, referring to joint supervision.
