Structure of the Graduate School OLTECH

Since 2009, the Graduate School Science, Medicine and Technology (OLTECH) offers doctoral candidates the opportunity for subject-specific and interdisciplinary qualification to strengthen important key competences alongside their doctorate. 

OLTECH functions as an umbrella organisation for different PhD study programmes, PhD programmes of the School/Faculty of Mathematics and Science, the School/Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences and supports doctoral candidates of the Department of Computing Science of the School of Computing Science, Business Administration, Economics, and Law (School/Faculty II) with additional qualification opportunities.

Membership in OLTECH is voluntary. It offers many advantages and opportunities. At the end of the doctoral period, members also receive a transcript of records, an overview of all achievements or a final certificate confirming the successful completion of a doctoral course or programme (according to examination regulations).
