PhD in Computer Science in the Mathematical and Computing Sciences Group, Faculty of Science (FOS), is a programme that fosters pure and applied advanced research in various Computer Science areas. PhD in Computer Science include the elaboration of original projects with an international research impact, which incorporate modern techniques and methods, in a broad range of pure and applied research topics. Candidates are expected to work diligently and they should be able to perform integrated research under the supervision of Computer Science staff members. They should be able to carry out analytical and experimental research and to synthesise and interpret the relevant data in a timely manner. The PhD candidates must also participate actively in research team meetings, as well as in Symposia and Conferences.
The Programme is designed for qualified individuals, who wish to acquire advanced knowledge, as well as analytical and research skills, and significantly contribute to the advancement of Computer Science fields.
Aims and ScopeThe PhD Programme in Computer Science aims to make scientists with high level specialised training, in order to cover the increased needs of Industry, Research Institutions and Academia in related aspects.
The scope of the Programme is to educate students to become independent researchers, as well as to train them to develop advanced scientific skills and analytical capabilities. The candidates are also expected to become capable to design scientific projects, to develop independent critical thinking and ability for proper scientific interpretations.
StructureStudents conduct an approved, original research project, with the supervision of one or more staff members. Upon completion of their research, they submit a Thesis, which normally does not exceed 100,000 words
AssessmentAssessment includes examination of the Thesis by internal and external examiners. As stipulated in the relevant UBD regulations the examiners may subject a candidate to an oral examination or any other test they think necessary to assess the acceptability of the Thesis. Periodic assessment of the progress of the candidate is carried out as stipulated in the relevant UBD regulations.
