Training courses

From Lunam to Amethis

All your courses will be transferred automatically from Lunam to Amethis. This will be done by the team working on the software (with whom we are in contact) and not by doctoral schools.

Doctoral schools still have access to Lunam and a view on the courses taken by each PhD student.



For any questions relating to the disciplinary training offer, you can contact your Doctoral School : Sciences for the engineer
The ED SPI board adopted on September 20, 2018 the rules and procedures for training.

The Doctoral School of Engineering Sciences offers several types of training which aim to deepen the training of the doctoral student and prepare him for his career pursuit after the thesis.

Doctoral students must undergo at least 100 hours of training during the preparation of the thesis. These 100 hours are to be divided between scientific training (40 hours) and transversal training (60 hours). This distribution can be modulated to pass to 50 hours of scientific training and 50 hours of transversal training.

The doctoral school offers several types of training courses designed to deepen PhD students’ training and to help them prepare for their post-doctoral career. PhD students must take at least 100 hours of training courses during their thesis preparation. 

Field-specific training courses

Disciplinary training courses are organized by the doctoral school. These courses provide scientific instruction within the student’s research specialization. All students need do is register in the “AMETHIS” application.
Follow this link to consult the catalogue of disciplinary training courses. 

These are “outward-looking” courses in management, ethics, preparing one’s professional career, etc. 

Cross-disciplinary training courses

Cross-disciplinary training courses are offered by both the Doctorate School and the Site Doctoral Centres. Consult the  "AMETHIS" websites for the up-to-date training course offer.
