Centre Tecnològic de Telecomunicacions de Catalunya

ANNUAL REPORT 2013

Post-Doc, Pre-Doc & Undergraduate

CTTC offers a training environment defined as experimental in R&D activities in telecommunications and highly reputed both in science and technology. This environment aims at reducing the existing gap between graduate training and industry, in order to pave the way to a productive setting where R&D is the main activity. This is approached both at graduate and undergraduate levels. Moreover, visitors are welcome for short to mid term pre- and post-doc stays.

Post-Doc

Currently CTTC enrols 5 post-doc researchers, mainly funded on a project basis. During 2013 a new post-doc research joined the program.

Pre-Doc

Currently CTTC’s pre-doctoral program consists of 19 PhD students. During 2013, one PhD student joined the program.

Undergraduate

CTTC also offers a challenging training environment for undergraduate students, who can carry on their Master and Bachelor Thesis by participating in R&D activities, under the supervision of researchers and engineers.

The following Master and Bachelor Thesis have been supervised at CTTC and defended during 2013.
