The milestone presentation is designed to allow reflection on interim work results and for establishing the individual PhD students‘ remaining program of work in consultation with their respective supervisors.
The milestone presentation is held in the GS SimTech framework roughly 18 months after starting the doctoral thesis project.
Order of events
The milestone presentation consists of a public talk followed by a closed-door oral exam conversation with the dissertation supervisor(s).
In addition to the oral presentation, the doctoral students prepare a “Milestone Report” in which they detail in writing the status of their individual research activity to date.
