Graduate support

At the University of Applied Sciences Jena, research and teaching are highly valued. For this reason, the support of young scientists is particularly important.

Our university promotes the doctoral studies of outstanding graduates, among other things, by awarding doctoral scholarships. Doctoral studies are also possible through third-party funding within the framework of research cooperations with external partners from industry and research. More than 40 graduates are currently engaged in applied research and development with the aim of obtaining a cooperative doctorate.

In addition, students can participate in research projects at the university, in part already during their studies, especially during the bachelor's or master's thesis, but also within the framework of student research projects.
