AUN/SEED-Net Scholarship for Doctoral Degree Sandwich Program
(ASEAN University Network / Southeast Asia Engineering Education Development Network)
The AUN/SEED-Net Project with support from Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) has been established to help development of "high quality" human resources in engineering fields in each ASEAN country which will lead to the self-reliance and sustainable industrial development for the Region. In order to reach this goal, AUN/SEED-Net provides scholarships for highly qualified applicants from Member Institutions to pursue doctoral degrees with international standard in the following nine fields at respective Host Institutions as follows:
Chemical Engineering at De La Salle University (DLSU)
Civil Engineering at Chulalongkorn University (CU)
Electrical and Electronics Engineering at Chulalongkorn University (CU)
Environmental Engineering at University of Philippines-Diliman (UP)
Geological Engineering at Gadjah Mada University (UGM)
Information and Communication Technology at King Mongkut's Institute of Technology, Ladkrabang (KMITL)
Manufacturing Engineering at University of Malaya (UM)
Materials Engineering at Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM)
Mechanical and Aeronautical Engineering at Institute of Technology Bandung (ITB).
In order for AUN/SEED-Net students to produce doctoral dissertations with international standard, a part of their thesis research is expected to be published in an international refereed journal, with the completion of the doctoral degree study within three years. The AUN/SEED-Net Project thus employs a joint thesis research supervision scheme under the "Sandwich Program" as follows.
First, well-qualified advisors of the Host Institutions, who have good research publication record in international refereed journal(s) (for example, at least one publication in an international refereed journal in the last 5 years), are assigned to students along with co-advisors of high calibre from Japanese Supporting Universities headed by Field Coordinating University.
Second, students are assigned a research topic chosen from a collection of interrelated and progressively conducted thesis research topics, termed as research themes (or research umbrellas) of Collaborative Research Program. Students would receive thesis research supervision support at a Japanese Supporting University under the supervision of a Japanese co-advisor under Short-Term Study in Japan Program.
During the three years of scholarships, students are eligible to make Short-Term Study in Japan once or twice for a total duration of eight (8) months maximum on condition that one of the two times must be less than one month. The number of study and duration of each time will be specified upon commencement of their doctoral study based on the consultation between their advisors and Japanese co-advisors.
Besides, according to AUN/SEED-Net Students' Mobility scheme which is promoted to enable students to benefit educationally and culturally from the experience of learning at other Member Institution(s), Ph.D. Sandwich students may be supported to take a course or conduct research at other Member Institution(s) for a short period. Students are advised to consult with their advisors and Host Institution on the necessity, possibility and procedures of their mobility.
