Doktorandrådet vid ACE/ The PhD Student Council at ACE

Aims and mission of the PhD Student Council

DR aims to work for a better work environment for PhD students and promote future research cooperation within the department of Architecture and Civil Engineering, our Areas of Advance and with industry. Furthermore:

  • We discuss and work to improve the work situation and the work environment for PhD students at our department;
  • We express our opinions on e.g. courses, supervision and the research school;
  • We are represented in the Chalmers Doctoral Student Guild (Doktorandsektionen) and the Departmental Advisory Team (Institutionsrådet) of ACE;
  • We plan fun events like BBQs, trips, and fika for PhD students.

Basically, we are here to help make the PhD experience as good as possible. We also hope to be a resource for individual students with issues they may have, where the student may not know where to turn to. Even if we are unable to assist with every issue, we can (hopefully!) at least put you in contact with the right person(s).
