Overview


GTIIT aims to attract the best and most talented graduate students available, to drive the research conducted at GTIIT to greater horizons. GTIIT's faculty members are recruited globally, including people from the Technion. These individuals are required to play significant roles in education, research and innovation and exploit the synergy between them. The faculty is supposed to conduct research and to act as role models for students regarding research and innovation.

 

For graduate students, the research will be carried out mostly at the GTIIT campus in Shantou, China. The graduate students for both master and PhD degrees will be part of the Technion Graduate School. They will have to attend graduate classes and research facilities at the Technion campus in Haifa, generally one semester for a master and two for a PhD degree. The degrees will be awarded by Technion, Israel.

 

GTIIT has open positions available in many research areas. We are looking for enthusiastic, motivated and competent scientists to conduct research projects with us.

The student is required to take classes based on a unique program and perform research, an engineering project or a final paper. The research or project for a master’s degree can be theoretical or experimental, focus on research of unique phenomena in pure or applied science, or can present a more practical approach in engineering design or manufacturing processes.


PhD:  Doctor of Philosophy


Studies towards a PhD span three to four years, and generally require full time study at Technion/GTIIT. The students devote their time primarily to research, and participate in seminars on advanced matters and courses based on a personal study program.
