PM for doctoral thesis

Startseite / PM Training Science / PM for doctoral theses

Doctoral students face the task of conducting a research project within three years and coming up with results they can present to the scientific community. 
This undertaking is probably their first complex project and it will have a huge influence on their professional career. At the beginning of their thesis doctoral students are often enthusiastic and willing to perform whatever comes up. But often after the initial excitement, they learn that this is not only about working scientifically but also about managing their thesis, structuring their work, demonstrating progress and dealing with people.
This workshop shows them how to manage their thesis to come up with results within their given time.
