 InDTech Graduate School Conference 2023!  

This gathering brings together the brightest minds in academia, providing a platform for PhD scholars to showcase their groundbreaking work, exchange valuable insights, and foster collaborative efforts. 



This year, we are thrilled to announce an exciting expansion of our network to Germany and Luxembourg which remarks the further steps of internationalization of IndTech Graduate school. 

Research Tracks

Four research tracks have been designed to match the existing academic excellence and the development needs as well as the industrial strategic priorities, challenges, and competence needs. Accordingly, a comprehensive postgraduate course program provides strong support for the research.

Meet our PhD students

The co-production in INDTECH between MDU and the 12 industrial partners will result in 15 graduated PhD students in a strategically important area. PhD graduates of INDTECH with a new interdisciplinary perspective will pilar digitalization and Industry 4.0 of the whole society.

I have a master’s degree from Mälardalen University in product and process development with a subsequent professional career, after graduation, I worked as a consultant at one of the country’s leading consulting companies before I got a job at Volvo, one of MITC’s partner companies. My career crosses academia and companies. I have been longing to return to the university and the environment with the community varied projects, and cross-border collaborations. IndTech offers me a great opportunity to deepen my knowledge in this area.

The Rhetoric Workshops aim to enhance the PhD student’s public speaking skills with intensive one-day training. The rhetoric coach Elaine Eksvärd was invited to this workshop to give practical tools and customized training for each student. Here you will find the introduction, the useful tips, and the final presentations from students after practice.

Workshop Introduction

IndTech graduate school organized the Rhetoric workshop for Ph.D. students to enhance their presentation skills on 13th May 2022, Eskilstuna campus. Elaine Eksvärd, the experienced communication consultant, was invited to coach the young researchers for the whole day.

Episode 1: Goals and students expectations

The common challenge most researchers face is how to make the academic presentation engaging. She used presentation examples on different occasions to help them understand the importance of clarity, engagement, and fun.

Episode 2: The tools

Elaine provided powerful tools to facilitate the students to break the routine by building the first impression from self-introduction. Each student got individual training regarding the details such as the voice, the gesture, eye contact, etc.

Episode 3: The presentations

The workshop aimed to support their 5 minutes pitch at the upcoming IndTech graduate school conference, where they will present themselves and research topics for more than 50 participants.
