PhD students are expected to produce an original PhD thesis, publish the results of their independent research in peer-reviewed academic journals, and present them at reputable international conferences.
The PhD student takes courses at the doctoral level at Skoltech to meet the coursework requirements. A plan for coursework should be developed in consultation with the supervisor following a PhD program curriculum (year of admission 2023).
The research is the key part of the doctoral studies. It is expected that the PhD student starts his/her thesis research at Skoltech immediately after the start of the program and devotes to it most of his/her time within the doctoral study.
The results of the thesis research are a high quality thesis, publications of research papers in peer-reviewed academic journals, presentations at reputable international conferences, and applications for grants and patents.
