PhD Research in Mechanical Engineering, University of Oulu, Finland

Expires on: 04/15/2024


Digitalization, electrification, and autonomy make the machine industry to be on the verge of a disruptive transformation toward intelligent machinery. Real-world machines are being demonstrated around the globe in environments such as indoor and outdoor worksites (mines, airports, and harbors), urban spaces (roads and cities), and in nature (forest, air, and sea) for applications such as civil engineering work, SAR and transportation of goods and people.

The Intelligent Work Machines (IWM) doctoral program links new generations of professionals to the doctoral level with multidisciplinary engineering knowledge needed for intelligent machinery development. The doctoral training connects academic research excellence with relevant industrial research and development challenges and accelerates industrial transformation in the machine industry.
