What Makes us different?

  1. The Doctoral programme conforms to the R&T strategy of EPS. That is to say, that research is aligned with the three key vertices of the knowledge triangle: universities, technological centres and companies, forming a model of Research Collaboration in which technological transfer and innovation are key.
  2. Students within the doctoral programme without paid employment may be able to get pre-doctoral grants with which to finance this stage of training.
  3. EPS Mondragon University promotes the international mobility of the students in order that they may gain the 'International Doctor' annotation, or otherwise to develop a thesis under co-tutoring. Currently 50% of doctors have the 'International Doctor' annotation.
  4. Doctoral students have the highest-level equipment and facilities, whether located within EPS or in collaborating institutions.
