Each PhD student will get a personal program, customized to his/her background, needs and ambitions, covering both technical components as well as transferable skills. As a research school, COBRA offers an extensive educational program to all of its PhD students, who have a four-year contract with the TU/e and are on the payroll of a COBRA group. Together with the supervisor, every PhD student will write a training and supervision plan. The program consists of Master and specialized courses organized by COBRA, the departments of Electrical Engineering and Physics and external partners. All parts of the program are also open to every postdoc affiliated to COBRA.
