PhD theses

GRIC is open to the incorporation of PhD students interested in developing research projects within the framework of the GRIC’s main research topics:

-        Improving the energy efficiency of buildings

-        Modelling the built environment

 

Doctoral studies can be performed through:

 -        Environmental Engineering Doctoral Programme

 -        Construction Engineering Doctoral Programme

 

Last doctoral theses directed by group members are:
