In 2003, the SHB is bestowed the right to offer PhD programs. The Project Competence PhD also adheres to dual education principles in parallel to work. PhD students must work on a research project within a company or organization sponsoring them. The project must be approved and supervised by the SHB while the research forms the basis of the dissertation, underpinned by optional seminars on related subjects and compulsory colloquia to monitor progress.

Same as for the masters’ degrees, the Institute for Advanced Risk Technologies might support you to find a 3-5 years projects which will finance your PhD and set the framework for your researches.
