The annual P-NUT PhD & EngD Day will be held on 24th February in DesignLab. Carrying the theme ‘Research & Sustainability in times of crisis’, the event for doctoral candidates includes hands-on activities, such as a workshop on how to deal with stress.
Results of a well-being survey show that UT doctoral candidates are impacted by loneliness and wish for more sense of belonging. The survey was conducted by the EQUITY working group from P-NUT (PhD Network of the University of Twente) from December 2021 to February 2022.
There won’t be any more PDEng candidates at the UT. As of the 1st of September, PDEng (Professional Doctorate in Engineering) changed its name to EngD (Engineering Doctorate). This is part of a bigger ambition, explains dean Bart Koopman. ‘We want one general EngD programme for the whole university.’
