Frequently Asked Questions - FAQ

This webpage aggregates frequently asked questions directed to the FGZ-EI.

Publication-Based Dissertation

The TUM Regulations for the Award of Doctoral Degrees include an option for a publication-based dissertation. The Department of Electrical and Comuter Engineering supports this option according to the regulations. Hence, both - i.e. Doctoral Candidate and Supervisor - must agree on this specific form (Download appendix 6).

Speculative Applications

The process of how to start a doctoral project supervised by members of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering is written down on our websites.
It is not helpful to send speculative applications and CVs directly to the FGZ-EI and FGZ-EI will not forward such emails to prospective supervisors.
