Booking of events via DokMS from 1 January 2024

There is a new doctoral management IT system on campus, DokMS. All HITEC courses from 1 January 2024 can only be booked via DokMS. However, the dates will still be listed here on our HITEC website to give you a quick overview of what is available.

All remaining HITEC courses in 2023 can be booked as usual here on our website. We will gradually transfer these bookings and registrations to your DokMS account.



Orientation Week

The orientation week will provide an overview of the scientific and technological work at the IEK-institute, the scientific methods and the infrastructure available. General informations include the scope of the central library and the requirements of the Doctoral Committee. Most important PhD students will get to know their peers and start building their network.



In the HITEC Labs small groups of students from various institutes concentrate on details of specific methods which might be applied in various fields. The HITEC Labs lasting 2 to 3 days are either hands-on periods of practical training or include comprehensive explanations and demonstrations of a specific scientific infrastructure.

HITEC Retreat

Retreats are 2-3 day workshops which are organized by doctoral candidates for doctoral candidates. The main focus of the PhD workshop, which will be held at an external venue, is scientific and personal networking between the PhD students. Emphasis will be given to a mutual exchange on basic issues and methodological approaches. This framework will encourage both specialist and interdisciplinary networking of the PhD students.

Scientific Writing

..for PhD students in their second year.

To write a good scientific article is hard work - even for experienced scientists. If you know the key criteria which are applied in the formal assessment of English-language scientific publications and align your writing process accordingly you will enhance the chances of publication considerably. In the seminar the necessary knowledge and skills are taught and practiced.

Starter Pack

The teaching of professional skills is a key component of our graduate school. The modules of the starter pack are specifically developed for HITEC students and encompass ‘Scientific Presentation’ and ‘Doing Science’.

HITEC Excursions

The HITEC Excursion Team, a group of HITEC docs, organizes an excursion series, in order to learn more about the state-of-the-art of energy generation in Europe. Trips to nearby energy suppliers will be offered.
