It provides various support services, e. g. the collaborative doctoral programmes listed below, to ensure the doctoral students have appropriate support. These are offered in cooperation with the various universities where the doctoral students can undertake their doctoral work. The students are supervised by professors at Esslingen University of Applied Sciences and also at their particular university.
