Information for PhD's

At IGS we want to offer a well-equipped research surrounding for PhD candidates. Therefore IGS organizes its annual PhD-Day, and yearly several courses and workshops are organized. In the past years we have organized a.o. poster workshops and media training workshops. For future events, you can regularly check this site and you will receive a notice by e-mail.

PhD’s at our institute take part in various programmes of the Twente Graduate School (TGS). TGS offers an increasing variety of integrated master’s and PhD programs for outstanding graduate students who aim at a career in scientific research. The programs are set up in cooperation between faculties and research institutes. For a full range of programmes, courses and events organized by TGS check out their website.

The central HR Department of the University of Twente organizes a wide range of training opportunities especially aimed at PhD candidates. Most of these training programmes focus on career development. You can find more information at the Centre for Training and Development.

Many PhD candidates participate in various Research Schools. These are organized by discipline on a national level. Here you can find information on several Research Schools in which our PhD’s participate.
