PhD students in our program can decide whether they wish to be awarded a traditional German doctoral title or a Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degree. The doctoral degrees presented under the auspices of the TU Dresden (TUD) schools/faculties are as follows:
Dr.rer.nat., or Ph.D.
Dr.-Ing., Dr.rer.nat., or Ph.D.
In addition to the doctoral certificate issued by the TU Dresden, the IMPRS grants a certificate confirming successful completion of the PhD Program along with a detailed program description.
