Doctoral Centers at Harz University of Applied Sciences

Doing a Doctorate at the Doctoral Centers in Saxony-Anhalt

Since May 2021, universities of applied sciences in Saxony-Anhalt have been able to award independently doctoral degrees to their young researchers. We work together with our partner universities in the state of Saxony-Anhalt on a cross-university basis. 


In the inter-university doctoral centre "Engineering Sciences and Information Technologies" (IWIT), interested students can do their doctorate at Anhalt University of Applied Sciences, Harz University of Applied Sciences or Merseburg University of Applied Sciences, depending on their focus. The doctoral centre "Social, Health and Economic Sciences" (SGW) is a doctoral centre founded by all four universities.


Here, young researchers can obtain the following academic degrees:


  • Doctor of Philosophy (Dr. phil.)
  • Doctor of Economic and Social Sciences (Dr. rer. pol.)
  • Doctor of Engineering (Dr.-Ing.)
  • Doctor of Natural Sciences (Dr. rer. nat.)
