TU Graz/ Studying and Teaching/ Degree and Certificate Programmes/

Doctoral School of Computer Science

In the Doctoral School of Computer Science at TU Graz, you will deal with the processing, storage and communication of information as well as with the structure and behaviour of information-processing systems. You will work independently on scientific challenges from the entire field of computer science. Much of the research work results from industrial cooperation projects and combines basic research with real-world applications.

Content of the doctoral programme

  • You attend in-depth courses.
  • You work on scientific and applied problems in computer science.
  • You conduct independent research at the highest scientific level.
  • You prepare research results and publish them in international journals and at conferences.
  • You write your dissertation in English.
