PhD Program

Consider these questions:

  • Do you want society to transform power efficiently and thus reduce environmental impact?
  • Do you want to decrease mental and physical work load on operators and drivers?
  • Do you want to reduce the noise level in society?
  • Do you want to work with advanced technology development and methodological research?
  • Do you want to have a graduate project that is relevant to both industry and society and which is carried out in close collaboration with an industry partner?

Of course you do! Engineers, with a deep understanding, that make an effort and really push the limits of knowledge are key contributors to a lasting society. If you want to be one of them, contact us. Flumes is known for its warm and innovative work climate, long history and its ability to perform research that interests industry. The division is one of the highest-ranked research groups in fluid power in the world.

Graduate Exams

Graduate exams (Licentiate and Doctor) consist mainly of two parts described below: Graduate research leading to a thesis and Graduate courses. More information on formalities can be found here (in the Swedish version of the page).

Graduate Research

You will have the choice to work either on general development of theory and methods, or to work problem oriented focusing on problems where the choice of method is an open question.

Existing projects so far have in most cases had industrial contacts where the industry already was on the leading edge internationally. In several cases the graduate student project has lead to patent applications. The graduate projects have also resulted to publications in international journals and conferences leading to an international network of contacts.

See our research pages for some examples of Graduate projects.

Graduate Courses

The aim of the graduate courses is to give a broad mechatronics- and fluid power design and control education of international top class. Each graduate student has an individual study plan, but a typical example could be (approximate numbers) 50% applied mathematics, control, diagnosis, and systems theory, 20% computer science, and 30% fluid power (general treatment but especially aiming at modeling, simulation and control of fluid power components and systems).
