If the final evaluation of the PhD thesis and defense is positive, the PhD school sends it to the Academy Council who is given one week to comment on the final evaluation. If there are no objections from the academic council, the Faculty PhD school informs the author that they have been awarded the PhD degree.
The PhD school issues the PhD diploma. As of January 2020, the faculty issues digital PhD diplomas.
Your diploma is issued as a series of PDF documents. At The Faculty of Engineering a complete diploma consists of:
• A description of the digital diploma
• Degree certificate
• Final evaluation (separate document)
The verified diploma is to be downloaded from the Digital Diploma Mailbox.
A valid digital diploma must contain a verification link. If the link is removed from the diploma, the diploma is no longer valid documentation for degree and results from SDU.
When SDU issues a digital diploma on the university's secure server a verification link will be embedded in the pages of the diploma. If the recipient of the diploma clicks on the link, he or she will be able to see the verified original diploma directly from the university's server.
