Informatics Engineering

Informatics Engineering is a branch of computer science, focused on effective solution of practical computation and information processing problems with application of scientific knowledge. This programme of doctoral studies prepares future scientific leaders in the scientific field of Informatics Engineering. Each doctoral student who aims to acquire doctoral degree has to complete doctoral studies in the scope of 30 credits, conduct original scientific research in the scientific field of Informatics Engineering and develop new scientific knowledge, present the results of his/her scientific research in national and international scientific conferences and scientific journals, write and orally defend his/her doctoral dissertation. Programme provides doctoral students with a possibility to complete one study module at the foreign academic institution or participate in summer camp for doctoral students organised abroad and actively conduct the most advanced scientific research at the integrated centre of science, entrepreneurship and studies of Santaka valley since the first day of their studies. Awarded doctoral degree proves that doctoral student acquired a deep academic education and is able to conduct original scientific research in the field of Informatics Engineering.

The PhD program aims to prepare well-educated researchers, teachers, and future global leaders in Informatics Engineering.
