Short description of the study programme

The Doctoral School of Mathematics and Computer Science offers a PhD training in all branches of Mathematics, Applied Mathematics, Computer Science and Information Theory. Our PhD students have the opportunity to participate in world-class mathematical research under the guidance of internationally renowned scientists. In recent years a significant portion of our PhD students won a post-doctoral research position in leading European and American universities. After graduation some of them are still teaching in leading European and American universities. The PhD program is 4 years long, with a complex midterm exam at the end of the second year.
