The Thesis: A Unique Project
The Doctoral College will be organizing a doctoral cross-curricular seminar entitled “The thesis: a unique project” (DOC803-CRN 12212) to be held on November 23rd, 24th, 25th and 27th, 2017 from 3:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. The seminar will be delivered by Professor Christophe Schmitt, Vice-president for Entrepreneurship and Incubation at the University of Lorraine and holder of the “Entreprendre” chair.

The said seminar will be open to all doctoral fields of study and will take place in the Auditorium of Building B.

The objective of the seminar is to show that a thesis can be related to a particular project. From this perspective, it is necessary to explain what is meant by project, and to show what mechanisms and tools are involved in order to manage this project. The seminar will be delivered as a practical training during which PhD students will work on the definition of their project and the ways of steering it in order to make it more effective and eventually to allow its added value to emerge for the benefit of all concerned societal stakeholders.

PhD students willing to participate are invited to proceed with the online registration within the registration deadlines of the Fall Semester or to send an e-mail to the Doctoral College

PhD students from outside USEK willing to participate in the said seminar, will have to follow the “Quick-Admit” procedure at the Orientation and Admission Office.
