Introductory Workshop for Newly Admitted PhD Students at LTH

We wish all new doctoral students (enrolled from july 2011 and on) welcome to Lund University Faculty of Engineering (LTH). To support a smooth start of your research studies, we have gathered a range of information and activities we hope you will find useful in a new three-meeting workshop, corresponding to 2 credits for all who participate and fulfil course requirements and preparations between meetings. This PhD study introduction will be available twice annually, each semester. The workshop calls for some student-supervisor interaction between meetings.

Course instruction

The course consists of three threequarter-day workshop sessions a week apart. Study tasks have to be prepared prior to session 2 and 3. For a Pass on the course, the participant must have attended all of the scheduled activities and completed and passed all assignments in the course.

The course is held in English.


To be admitted to the course applicants have to be newly (within one year) admitted to a PhD programme at LTH.


The course corresponds to about 1 week of full-time work and to 2 credits in third-cycle (PhD) studies (with Pass and Fail as available grades), if this is in line with the individual study plan.

Course leaders

  • The LTH Directors of Postgraduate Studies (Eva Nordberg Karlsson, Anders Gustafsson, Per Tunestål) are the principal course leaders together with
  • Anders Ahlberg,, Senior lecturer and Academic developer, LTH. Course coordinator and examiner.
