The Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), in Germany and the National University of San Martín in the Province of Buenos Aires, Argentina, jointly offer Double Doctorates; one in Astrophysics (DDAp) and another in Engineering (DDEIT).

Doctoral students participating in the DDAp and the DDEIT will work on joint research projects in astroparticle physics, for example, related to the Pierre Auger Observatory, and will spend at least one year in the other country. Doctoral students must follow the regulations of both universities and a specific collaboration agreement. The research project is complemented by a lecture program covering astrophysics, astroparticles and particle physics, as well as language courses. At the end of a project after approximately three years, KIT and UNSAM will conduct a joint examination and both will issue their doctoral degree.

The DDAp is supported by the German Argentine University Center (CUAA-DAHZ) and the Helmholtz International Research School for Astroparticle Physics and Enabling Technologies (HIRSAP), a graduate school of KIT and UNSAM. PhD students from HIRSAP and KSETA can apply to participate in the DDAp, provided their research topic fits with our partner institute ITeDA.
