Message from the Director of the Doctoral School

Welcome to the website of the Doctoral School in Sciences, Technologies and Engineering (EDCTI) of the University of Granada, responsible for doctoral programmes linked to the fields of theoretical and experimental sciences, information and communication technologies, civil and computing engineering, and architecture.

This portal aims to help students and lecturers in an agile and efficient way, offering relevant information about the School's structure, academic programmes and procedures. Efficient communication is very important for us, so we welcome any suggestions for the improvement of this website.

The EDCTI, like the rest of the Doctoral Schools of the UGR, is a young centre, although sufficiently experienced and committed to offer high-quality doctoral studies and to train highly qualified researchers for a knowledge society. We pursue training in theoretical and applied frontier research in the fields of natural sciences, information and communication technologies, and engineering. For the realisation of this task, we aim to achieve local, national and international collaborations. To this end, we rely on qualified lecturers and students from various national and foreign educational and research centres.

If you are interested in receiving doctoral training in the fields of sciences, technologies and engineering, explore this website and the doctoral programmes offered by our School and join us on the exciting journey of scientific-technical research and discovery.
