Cumulative Thesis
D-MAVT is usually requesting standard doctoral thesis.

A doctoral candidate may submit a doctoral thesis in the form of a “cumulative” thesis:
 Several publications
 Publications published or accepted in a peer reviewed journal (ISI journals or comparable)
 The doctoral candidate must be the first author of all publications;
 The thesis includes an extended introduction chapter with:
   i.   the overriding research question;
   ii. the methodology used;
   iii. the relevance and the contribution of the thesis to specific subjects;
 The thesis includes an extended conclusion chapter which integrates the results of the different
   publications and includes suggestions for future research, plus providing evidence for a
   coherent research framework of the thesis.

                                                                        Doctoral Program Presentation   |   May 17, 2017   | 9

   the lecturer defines the requirements for the confirmation (Testat)
   if the Testat is “received” # credits = # hours (V+U, G)
   results visible in myStudies (Functions: Studies overview)
 Course not listed in the course catalogue at ETH Zürich:
   Language courses (Sprachzentrum)
   LET (“How to teach”, see later), Seminars

                                                                            Doctoral Program Presentation   |   May 17, 2017   | 13
Disagreements and Conciliation Committee
 In the case of serious disagreement between the supervisor and the doctoral
  candidate, the Head of the Department (Prof. Norris) together with the
  Delegate of Doctoral Affairs (Prof. Jenny) will attempt to settle the dispute. If
  necessary, the Vice-Rector Doctorate (Prof. Togni) will act as mediator.

 Should the mediation efforts fail, and the supervisor no longer wants to act in
  this role, the Vice-Rector for Doctoral Studies will refer the matter to the
  Conciliation Committee (Prorector for Doctoral Studies (chair), the Head of D-
  MAVT or Delegate, and a representative of the ETH Association of Scientific
  Staff (AVETH))

 Should no agreement be reached, the Rector will take over the matter.
