Doctoral Colloquium – DissKo

PhD students at the Faculty of Architecture can attend the self-organised doctoral colloquium “DissKo” (short for Dissertationskolloquium) to exchange with their fellow students. During the lecture periods, monthly meetings are organized to present and discuss PhD projects which are still in progress. They offer the opportunity for every student to present his/her PhD project in a protected space for discussing research questions and methods and to train their presentation skills.
