The leading French scientific university and 7th European university according to the Shanghai ranking, UPMC represents significant research potential.
Over 3,400 PhD students and around 4,500 researchers and research professors are spread across approximately 160 laboratories and 20 schools. This research potential gives it important responsibilities in terms of teaching and, in particular, doctoral teaching. In the current context of the development of the society of knowledge, driving the economy of innovation, this area of concern is important for UPMC.
The ambition of UPMC is to contribute to the development of this society by proposing, within its doctoral programmes, scientific training of a high standard accompanied by a diversified range of additional programmes of study on offer and personalised support for the professional plans of PhD students.
These mechanisms, when put into place, should ensure that PhD students successfully graduated, creative and innovative, a professional capable of occupying positions of responsibility in the companies of the socio-economic world.
The scientific area covered under the "modeling and engineering" sector comprises pure and applied maths, informatics, mechanics, electronics, robotics and medical engineering. For each discipline, the work carried out ranges from fundamental research to applied research, this latter having various stages of completion.
The various disciplinary sectors enjoy guaranteed scientific autonomy (due in part to the physical distance imposed by the project, the laboratories involved being distributed over tens of different sites in the Paris region), but this grouping into one single sector does reflect the strong links that exist at the interfaces of the disciplines represented.
The existence of this sector is likely to favour the synergies between the different disciplinary sectors as well as joint initiatives with the 3 other research sectors of UPMC.
There are a wide variety of scientific challenges. Two immediately discernable topics are the essential fundamental research in a discipline, driven by the desire to increase the body of knowledge and application-orientated research in response to current social issues.
Subsequent to the doctoral school recruitment process, the candidate is asked to log on to the registration web site and download the forms authorizing thesis registration. Once those forms have been completed and validated by his /her doctoral school, he/she is to log on to the site again to finalize his/her registration.
Validation of the registration, payment of the fees and student card issue take place in the Information and registration office.
