Doctoral Defences

The degree of Doctor can be obtained at TU Delft following the public defence of a dissertation before the Board for Doctorates or the doctoral committee appointed by it. Below you find the agenda of the so called thesis defences of our department. For access to their theses you can have a look in TU Delft Repository. TU Delft Repository is the digital storage of publications of TU Delft. The theses will be available within a few weeks after the actual thesis defence.
