The goal of the three-years Computer Science programme from University of Pisa is to foster post-graduate education of researchers and innovators in Information Technology.


Key Features

The Department of Computer Science of the University of Pisa runs a Computer Science programme from University of Pisa, in cooperation with the University of Firenze and the University of Siena. 

Our Alumni are employed in academic and research positions, as well as in R&D positions in industry and the public sector, in Italy and worldwide.

We seek for prospective candidates, both in Europe and in the rest of the world. Candidates are expected to have a general knowledge of Computer Science theory and applications, together with a in-depth knowledge of some research topics connected to Computer Science.

The core activity of PhD students is research which is expected to be pursued in one of the research groups of the Department, as well as in other Pisan institutions and research centres, that are active in almost all the fields of Computer Science and in multi-disciplinary areas. They will benefit from the rich interactions with international research projects and cooperations these groups are involved in.
