Scientific qualification

The dkmi offers those interested in research the opportunity to pursue a scientific qualification within the framework of research projects.
Depending on the topic and subject area, a doctorate can take place in one of the research centres at Darmstadt University of Applied Sciences, or alternatively through a cooperation with another university. The central point of contact at the h_da for the topic of scientific qualification or doctorate is the Graduate School of the Darmstadt University of Applied Sciences (GSD).

The GSD supports those interested in doing a doctorate and doctoral candidates, supervising professors as well as the departments, institutes and divisions of the h_da, the cooperative platforms and the doctoral centres as well as all cooperation partners.
