The dual degree program represents an exciting new development in the collaboration between our two institutions. Building on the impactful joint research that has already been conducted, the new program will see the partnership consolidated through the co-supervision of talented graduate researchers.
Transnational education takes many forms, but what makes this program distinct and exciting is the way it goes beyond the standard concept of progression from one institution to another. The partnership and interrelationship are tangible throughout the duration of the program:
- The definition of PhD projects is a collaborative process involving supervisors from both institutions.
- Both institutions participate in the selection of candidates for the program.
- The joint supervision team is maintained throughout the program and both institutions monitor the evolution of the program.
- Evaluation is carried out annually by a joint panel with internal examiners from both institutions.
- Upon completion of the program, both institutions will issue degree certificates that reference the degree award.
By spending two years at each institution, postgraduate researchers in this program will benefit from the collective experience of the joint supervisory team, as well as the research facilities and infrastructure of two world-renowned institutions. Of course, they will also benefit from the cultural experience of conducting research in two different countries.
To join this Dual Doctoral Degree program between the University of Chile and the University of Manchester, applicants must submit separate applications to the regular Ph.D. programs in Electrical Engineering at the University of Chile and the University of Manchester. Both applications should indicate the intention to pursue the Dual Doctoral Degree program between the University of Chile and the University of Manchester.
Applicants may seek funding through the ANID National Doctoral Scholarship, Chile. This is the same instrument used to fund studies in the regular PhD program at the University of Chile.
Before making both applications, it is recommended to contact the Coordinator of the Dual Doctoral Degree program, Prof. Rodrigo Moreno.
