The training and the IFP School doctoral college
In addition to the academic doctoral program, the doctoral college of IFP School provides doctoral students with a number of trainings and conferences. These activities are open to all doctoral students carrying a thesis in partnership with IFPEN.
By participating in these activities, you can claim at the end of the thesis, a doctoral college diploma certifying your skills in the different disciplines of IFPEN. The various training courses are held in collaboration with the IFP School and are grouped under the name "Opening Training for the oil industry and engines."
The director of doctoral training is Andreas EHINGER, its assistant Anne DANRE-DUCLOS.
The seminars of the IFP School doctoral college
Monthly lectures covering various research topics there of interest and directly or indirectly applicable to the projects of the PhD candidates are offered from December until June. Each student will take at least twelve lectures on the eighteen proposed over the course of the three-year PhD project. The conferences are held alternately in Rueil and Solaize but are available in each site (Rueil and Solaize) by videoconference.
The various training courses are held in collaboration with the IFP School and are grouped under the name "Opening Training for the oil industry and engines." They last a week (35 hours) and are intended to give doctoral students an opening to the oil industry and engines by covering technical and economic aspects.
They are divided into four modules:
- Hunting for oil
- Gross - Refining - Products - Manufacturing Drawings
- Fuels - Lubricants - Engines
- Oil Economy
Each student must participate three out of four trainings. The number of places available each year will equal the number of current PhD students. The distribution of doctoral students will be conducted by the Doctoral Training Directorate, the following criteria in order of application:
- Priority of 3rd year over 2nd year, 2nd year over first year.
- Overlap field of interest between the course and the project of the PhD candidate.
You will be notified during the year of the dates for these trainings. At the end of each training, you get a paper attesting to your participation. These courses can also be validated by your university graduate school as a compulsory training package for graduation. Educate yourself.
Recently, PhD candidates have the opportunity to follow documentary formations, to more efficiently use the online librairies. These courses are free and are held on the Rueil-Malmaison site.
