The Faculty of Engineering has the following rules for part-time studies, pursuant to the PhD Order.
PhD students who wish to complete their studies on a part-time basis must apply for this at the same time as they enrol. Part-time PhD study may last for six years at the most. The way in which part-time study is carried out must be agreed in each instance at the time of enrolment.
It is possible to apply for transfer to part-time study after one’s PhD study has begun if so prompted by special circumstances, such as important personal or work-related reasons. Substantiated personal applications signed by the head of the department and the principal supervisor must be submitted to the head of the PhD School for final approval via the PhD administration office.
