The Program

The PhD in Design Program is a joint program between the Universities of Porto and Aveiro, this year being offered by the University of Porto in partnership with the UPTEC Science and Technology Park. A hub environment facilitates knowledge exchange and reciprocal relevance stemming from ongoing research. Various long-terms projects hosted by the Program welcome new, contrasting and complementary contributions from multi-disciplinary perspectives. It is a bi-lingual course, in English and Portuguese.

Five full scholarships are available exclusively to this course edition, offering a monthly stipend from the start, and covering full tuition fees from year 2 onwards.
