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 doctoral 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 research. 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 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 doctoral candidates.

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).


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.

Modern Business Manners in a digital world

Technology has changed the way we do our jobs, communicate, share
information and network. We often work remote, are located in Coworking
spaces and use teleconferencing in business. Smartphones have brought
every aspect of our lives to a new level. Social media has changed the way
we used to collaborate.

As our world has changed, there are many new questions. What should a
young professional know for everyday working life? What are the rules on
networking on LinkedIn? How do you write good emails? Is WLAN part of
hospitality today? How do you show respect and appreciation when dealing
with others? Missteps can have lasting consequences. Good manners and
kindness helps us get on in life, foster better relations in the workplace, but
also make us more happy, self-confident and successful.

This 1-day (online) seminar is designed to cover the spectrum of modern
manners in the modern work place. Participants learn which modern manners
apply in everyday professional life and clarify their questions. They optimize
their appearance, gain confidence and learn how to move confidently and
friendly - analog and digital - in the corporate world and outside the Academia
