Training courses

MathSTIC doctoral students are required to take a minimum of 100 hours of complementary training courses, with at least 40 hours comprising scientific or field-specific courses and at least 40 hours comprising cross-disciplinary and/or vocational courses. With the Thesis Director’s approval, this hour volume and the balance between cross-disciplinary and field-specific courses will be modified according to the specificities of both the thesis and the PhD student’s project. Students will only be allowed to defend their thesis if they have respected their thus established training volume in hours. PhD students are encouraged to carefully read the document: “MathSTIC Doctoral School training courses: offers, rules and procedures”.
