Promoting young talents

A key component of research activities at RheinMain University of Applied Sciences is supporting young academics. Doctoral programs are an integral part of teaching and research.

Currently, there are around 70 doctoral students at RheinMain University of Applied Sciences pursuing their studies in a cooperative individual set-up or in one of the structured programs.

The updated Hessian Higher Education Act (HHG) offers universities of applied sciences the right to autonomously award doctoral degrees. This option has been in place since January 2016 . RheinMain University of Applied Sciences applied for this right in the area of Social Work, together with the Frankfurt University of Applied Sciences and Fulda University of Applied Sciences.

RheinMain University of Applied Sciences offers young academics the opportunity to pursue their doctorate in an interdisciplinary, practice-oriented and application-based environment. Doctorates are an integral part of research activities at our university.

Long-standing cooperation projects with universities means students can choose to follow structured doctoral programs with us. At present there are programs in computer science, applied social sciences, electromobility, nanostructures and mobile media.

A cross-university doctoral network (DoktorandenNetzwerk Hochschule RheinMain) helps doctoral candidates to forge links and share and exchange ideas. Network members are also eligible for financial support and free training and seminars for their doctorate.

There are also numerous support programs for young academics. An overview of the support programs offered by a group of organizations for the promotion of young talent can be found  here.
