The E2 PhD student council aims to create better work conditions and communication opportunities for the PhD students at the Electrical Engineering (E2) department.

Aims and Motivations

At the E2 PhD student council, we would like to

  • Facilitate good relations between the PhD students, and to this aim we arrange social activities, workshops, and seminars, etc.
  • Promote the common interests for the PhD students by raising important work-related topics and issues in discussion with the department
  • Represent the PhD students at the Chalmers Doctoral Students Guild (Doktorandsektionen) and the E2 Advisory Board (Institutionsrådet), to promote our joint interests
  • Be a reference organ which can give direction and support to the PhD students in case of academic and work experience
  • Convey useful information to the PhD students and increase communication opportunities between the local and the central level


Women in Science – WiSE – is a supportive network aiming to inspire and encourage collaboration between women in academia and to support female researchers in pursuing their academic career.

The network is hosted and financially supported by the Department of Electrical Engineering at Chalmers University of Technology. The target group for the activities arranged by WiSE is primarily researchers at Chalmers and researchers engaged in MedTech West.

WiSE’s vision is to provide equal opportunities for women and men to qualify for positions, and to make a career in academia. WiSE aims at providing a dynamic and inspiring network, and to motivate women who want to move forward in their academic careers and want to share their experiences in doing so.

WiSE & E2 PhD Council: WiSE has one representative in the E2 PhD Council, to enable collaborations on shared interests such as:

  • Employee survey
  • Inspirational seminars
  • Social events
  • Other activities with E2 PhD students as target group
