Tamas Jantvik defended his doctoral thesis at Luleå University of Technology in December last year. Now, after a successful assesment of his thesis, at Monash University, he has two doctoral degrees.
The possibility to be considered for dual doctorates, is given to a doctoral student who is enrolled at least 12 months at the university that is not the student's home university. For Tamas Jantviks, this meant several periods working at Monash University in Australia.
– It has been really fun, says Tamas Jantvik.
– I've learned a lot and got a broader range of experience when seeing how they work at another university. And to be able to discuss thoughts and ideas with people in Monash has been very valuable.
LTU and Monash are so called alliance universities. This means that cooperation between the two universities includes several fields, including joint doctoral programs and research projects. Collaboration on joint third-cycle subject courses, was discussed at a workshop in Prato at the end of June. The idea is that more doctoral students will be incorporated into the cooperation between universities.
Tamas Jantviks thesis is called Phenomenological modeling of sensory integration phenomena Using Self-organized feature maps. He has been supervised by Jerker Delsing, Luleå University of Technology, Lennart Gustafsson, LTU, and Andrew Paplinski, Monash University.
