Quality criteria for an academic design thesis (MPhil and Doctorate-level), and other academic design output are formulated. Research in the program is executed by the research-oriented disciplines of the department from the domains of the humanities, the engineering, natural, and social sciences. The research includes the designrelevance that can be attained by the so-called Research-by-Design-approach. Originally the ‘Research by Design’-assumption led to the idea that Doctor-theses in Architecture should be mainly consisting of actual design. However, the policy of the USO-Built group has gradually changed. Although design could be part of theses towards a Doctor degree, Design Thesis should meet the requirements of a regular Doctorate Thesis
