About the programme

Computing and IT is one of the most pervasive fields today, with a presence in all sectors of the economy and in all areas of science. The rapid development of the field dictates the need for highly educated people capable of developing new computer and information technologies and integrating them into innovative environments. The main objective of the doctoral programme in Computer Science and Informatics is to train highly qualified professionals and future scientists who will be able to carry out demanding independent research and development work in the field of computer science and informatics. In addition, we expect doctoral students to acquire the necessary communication skills, the ability to report on scientific research achievements and to develop the ability to work in interdisciplinary teams. The main focus is on independent research work in the field of the doctoral thesis and on guiding the student on his/her scientific path.
