PhD in Logistics
The doctoral programme at Molde University College is a three-year full-time programme leading to a doctoral degree (phd) in logistics. The conferral of the doctoral degree in logistics signifies that the candidate has attained expert competence in a major field of study. Candidates usually plan on spending four years, including a 25% workload outside the programme or with teaching duties at the college.
The general structure is as follows: The study itself takes three years and includes 45 ECTS with courses and similar activities. The rest of the time is allocated to the thesis. Schoolarship holders (stipendiater) will in addition normally have one years of working duties for the college. Doctoral students may take one or two semesters abroad, which may be used for both coursework and work with the thesis.
Courses are taken from three sources
- The master-program in logistics at Molde University College
- Doctoral courses at Molde University College
- Courses at master or doctoral level at other (foreign or domestic) universities
You must take some courses from groups 2 and 3, but may drop group 1.
You will normally have one supervisor in Molde plus one or more co-supervisors from elsewhere. These can typically be your foreign host, or a representative for the industry you are financed by or are working for. Other academics may also have this role, depending on your needs. Suggesting co-supervisors is the duty of your main supervisor, and the Doctoral Committee approves them.
About one year before you plan to finish, an evaluation committee will be appointed. The committee has three members, at most one from the college and at least one international. The committee has two major duties: To approve your thesis for its final defense, and to evaluate your defense. As the committee is appointed one year before you plan to finish, it will have the possibility to give you advice so that approval is achieved.
