Abstract

We describe and analyze the PhD education in the visualization group at the Vienna University of Technology and set the education in a larger perspective. Four central mechanisms drive the PhD education in Vienna. They are: to require an article-based PhD; to give the student freedom to choose research direction; to let students work in shared offices towards joint deadlines; and to involve students in reviewing articles. This paper describes these mechanisms in detail and illustrates their effect.
