Work­ing field:

Doc­to­ral can­di­da­tes will join an indi­vi­dual men­to­ring and qua­li­fi­ca­tion pro­gram that com­pri­ses spe­cia­li­zed cour­ses that pre­pare can­di­da­tes opti­mally for their rese­arch. Also, a rese­arch semi­nar is offe­red where can­di­da­tes can dis­cuss with inter­na­tio­nally renow­ned rese­ar­chers in their field. More­o­ver, soft skills and lan­guage cour­ses are offe­red.


App­li­cants should have an excel­lent aca­de­mic record, and hold an MSc (or an equi­va­lent uni­ver­sity degree) in com­pu­ter sci­ence or rela­ted disci­pli­nes (such as mathe­ma­tics or busi­ness infor­ma­tics). Flu­ency in spo­ken and writ­ten Eng­lish is requi­red. App­li­cants with a good know­ledge of soft­ware engi­nee­ring or one of the app­li­ca­tion areas men­tio­ned above are pre­fer­red.
