Pedro Pinho Senna - EIT Manufacturing Doctoral School PhD Student (2020)

I recommend the EIT Manufacturing Doctoral School as it helped me gain state-of-the-art knowledge. We had 3 modules that were more prone towards Business, Economics, and getting the Ph.D. ideas that would later turn out to be innovative startup ideas. I thoroughly enjoyed the program and recommend as it is totally worth it.

I am also glad to be part of the EIT Manufacturing alumni, a diverse community of 20000 students as it provides a vast network and knowledge sharing with other communities.


Diago Rocha - EIT Manufacturing Doctoral School Student

If you are a Ph.D. student, I encourage you to enroll with EIT Manufacturing Doctoral School. We need new researchers to develop new startups in the future and to bring manufacturing back to Europe.

During the program, we had a compilation of Scientists who were from Business, Marketing, Robotics, and Mechanical Engineering backgrounds. We all come from different backgrounds and every individual will have a different point of view and we work together to put these different pieces together to obtain a good product in the end.


Maja Trstenjak - EIT Manufacturing Doctoral School Student

I recommend the EIT Manufacturing Winter School as it helped me gain
state of art knowledge. I am also super happy to have won in one of the
case studies conducted on 'How to adapt products & business for the new age' where we collectively worked as a team and our efforts were recognized.
