About

The main goal of the Doctor of Philosophy Programme Computer Sciences offered by the University of Innsbruck is to make an independent contribution to research through submission of an original piece of scientific work on the highest international level in one of the fields of competence offered at the Faculty of Mathematics, Computer Science and Physics. 

Overview

This work is to widen the boundaries of knowledge in the relevant special field and thus to contribute to the progress in the dissertation subject.

This goal is to be achieved by completion of the compulsory modules in the curriculum, where particularly the module „Scientific Basics/Core Skills of the Thesis Topic“ offers the requirements to research-oriented subject matter. 

The modules „Analysis of Own and External Research Results“ and „Core Subject“ convey the current state of research. An addition to these skills (e.g. project management, professional presentation of scientific contents) guarantees the module „Generic Skills”. Graduates of the Doctor of Philosophy Programme have a systematic understanding of their research discipline and research methods of this field.

The programme concludes with a dissertation which is to be supervised by a team of supervisors and is completed by an oral exam taken before an examination board. Graduates are awarded the academic degree „Doctor of Philosophy (PhD)“. 

Expected Learning Outcomes for the Doctorate

Graduates are qualified junior academics. They have mastered the methods applied in research in their area and are capable of critically discussing, analyzing, and further developing theories. Junior academics possess the competence to develop and conduct substantial research projects with scientific integrity, and they are qualified to reflect on these processes scientifically and theoretically. They are also aware of issues and questions in gender research. 

Future Prospects: Occupational Profiles and Career Opportunities

Graduates of the Doctor of Philosophy Programme Computer Sciences offered by the University of Innsbruck are able to independently solve complex scientific problems of fundamental research and applied research on an international level. They hold leading positions in research, industry and the tertiary education sector. 

Graduates are able, after a short introductory period, to take over managerial functions in all companies and institutions of the development and realization of innovative and complex hardware, software or network systems.
