The PhD program in Sciences for Sustainable Development (CIPDES) has an interdisciplinary approach that integrates various research disciplines allowing addressing problems of sustainable development from different perspectives such as: climate change, biodiversity conservation, economic valuation of natural resources and animal production allowing developing research to reduce problems of deforestation in the Amazon. Having 04 mentions: Management of natural resources and environment, Agriculture and rural development, Animal production and welfare and Economics of agricultural production.

The Program is designed with an interdisciplinary curriculum comprising various areas and lines of educational action. Established in 03 academic years of studies with 64 academic credits, of which 45 credits representing 70%, allowing the student to devote himself to his research work.

The program has proposed 10 strategic alliances with international universities of high scientific level and world ranking such as: University of Wisconsin-Madison, University of North Carolina, Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences, UNINORTE-Colombia, and national entities such as PUCP, UNALM, UNSM, INIA who led scientific research in sustainable development and agricultural systems in Peru.

This strategic alliance will allow the development of international and national internships, to have a teaching staff with internationally recognized researchers for lectures, to develop theses in the best laboratories of research institutes, to participate in international events to disseminate research work, allowing students a comprehensive training with scientific and humanistic basis to address the problems of the country.

Objectives of CIPDES

The objective of the Doctorate in Sciences for Sustainable Development is "To train specialized researchers with high-level scientific skills and competencies, who take an interdisciplinary, multidisciplinary and holistic perspective. The researchers will be capable of generating knowledge and innovating competencies to efficiently address, manage, and meet the needs of regional environments and their renewable resources through a sustainable approach. This will allow them to effectively face the challenges of a globalized environment with ethics and efficiency. They will achieve this through research, training, technological development and innovation competencies”.

Academic Objectives:

  • To train competent human resources able to face the challenges of new times with leadership, based on solid academic research training.
  • To promote excellent scientific and technological research in the field of sustainable development, with a focus on the Amazon region and in national and international contexts.
  • Develop leadership and teamwork skills in students, enabling them to actively participate in research projects and in resolving complex problems related to sustainable development.
  • Promote academic mobility and scientific/technological cooperation with other universities and national/international institutions to enrich student training and strengthen research in the field of sustainable development.

The program is designed for three years of study. The curriculum includes a minimum of 70% research-focused subjects, taught in shared chairs with partner entities, in a face-to-face and synchronous manner. This provides students with an enriching and flexible learning experience by promoting interaction, commitment, and the effective achievement of learning objectives. The Doctorate program comprises 64 credits distributed across six cycles. It is supported by 59 PhDs and 13 research groups.

Mentions and lines of research

The doctoral program has four mentions, which are framed in lines, centers, groups and research institutes oriented according to the training and research needs of students in the context of sustainable development.
