Graduate School Science, Medicine and Technology - OLTECH

Graduate School Science, Medicine and Technology - OLTECH

Graduate School Science, Medicine and Technology

The aims of the Graduate School OLTECH are to train PhD candidates in an international and interdisciplinary context. They learn to develop inventive research questions and new approaches to solving problems, to plan and manage projects and to present the results of their studies. The early-career researchers learn about the relevant models and hypotheses in their field of science and can practise discussing them.

The curriculum combines several disciplines ensuring that the doctoral researchers are able to integrate their scientific skills into a broader context. All curriculum elements serve to enhance the scientific independence and creativity of the PhD students.


OLTECH Network of Alumni and Active doctoral candidates

We would like to invite OLTECH PhDs and former OLTECH members to join the LinkedIn group "OLTECH Network of Alumni and Active doctoral candidates". With the group we want to bring together current OLTECH PhD candidates with former OLTECH members, provide opportunities for networking, exchange and news.

Next courses and events

english+ 4.9 "Open Seminars" (NEW)

Note that any text reviews by Eric can only be considered in the framework of English+ Open Seminars. The previous "Schreib-Sprechstunde" offers, such as they existed before are discontinued.

Below is the topic schedule for our new seminar series. Each meeting is split into three different roughly equal phases. The first 30 minutes will be the topics given below. The second will be devoted to your own specific questions from what you are working on. The third phase is devoted to discuss topics, so we can practice talking English about relevant issues in a relaxed environment. You are welcome and encouraged to bring in small bits of your works for help, review and discussion.

The fee of 30€ applies to a total of four seminars you are attending. You do not have to visit all meetings, and can flexibly decide which you would like to visit after you have registered for one "turn" of four seminars. After you have attended four seminars you would have to register again. Of course, you are welcome and encouraged to visit as many as possible.
