The scientific production and training capacity of the researchers in the different UOC groups involved in IT, multimedia and telecommunications justify the creation of a specific doctoral programme, with a separate identity, to consolidate research and knowledge exchange activities in this area. Therefore, the IT, Multimedia and Telecommunications (IMT) Department at Universitat Oberta de Catalunya (UOC) is offering this Doctoral programme in Network and Information Technologies.
In order to acquire the advanced training required for the research project, the student must complete, during the doctoral programme, the subjects, courses or activities that comprise his or her personal academic itinerary.
The training offering consists of diverse training activities with different types, duration, timeframes and objectives, which are structured in five blocks (methodology courses, subject-specific research seminars, complementary training, research-oriented complementary training activities and the doctoral research seminar).
The programme offers the following research lines:
- Computer Vision, Machine Learning and Pattern Recognition
- Distributed, Parallel and Collaborative Systems
- Simulation and Optimization
- Management of ICT Systems and Services
- Information and Network Security and Privacy
- Knowledge Technologies
- Learning Technologies
- Software Engineering
- Wireless Networks and IoE
- Human-Computer Interaction, Design and Multimedia
- Applications of Geographic Information Systems
- Complex systems
- Data Science
