The purpose of the PhD programme of the JM Burgerscentrum is the development of PhD students into independent researchers in the field of fluid mechanics. To reach this goal a thorough and fundamental knowledge of fluid-mechanics and their mathematical and numerical modelling is required, as well as the ability to further develop this knowledge and to apply it to solve scientific and technical problems. An important part of the PhD programme consists of the execution of a scientific research project under the supervision of an expert of the JMBC. A smaller part consists of the participation in courses. Details of that part of the programme (the training programme) can be found here.
