About

The Doctoral Program in Computer Science aims to facilitate the acquisition of knowledge and scientific methods through seminars and workshops to which foreign experts will be invited. 

The doctoral program will also allow doctoral students to improve their aptitude for communication about their research, and offers a possibility to improve scientific English.
