Apart from the research units, research at the Department of Computer Science at KU Leuven can also be organised by means of research groups. Members of a research group don’t have to belong to the same unit, nor to the Department of Computer Science. Research groups are established and dissolved by initiative of the involved members, and are not part of the official organisational structure of the department.
Official research groups with substantial participation from the Department of Computer Science are:
- Machine Learning (ML: part of DTAI)
- Declarative Languages and Systems (DLS: part of DTAI)
- Computer Science Teaching Methodology (CSTM)
- Combinatorial Optimization and Decision Support (CODeS)
- Functional Tools & Techniques for Online Programs (FunTTop)
- Embedded and Artificially Intelligent Vision Engineering (Eavise)
- Advanced Integrated Sensing (ADVISE)
- Human-Centered Systems for Health Care, Learning, Arts and Entertainment (e-Media)
- Mechatronics Group (M-Group)

- The easiest way to start a PhD application is to find a vacant PhD position in Science, Engineering & Technology and apply online.
- In principle, the PhD positions on the KU Leuven jobsite already have financing available (via the corresponding supervisor). Please read through the details of the position very carefully and make sure you meet all eligibility criteria!
- Each position has a link at the bottom to apply online. You will be asked to fill in an online application ("esollicitatie"). All complete applications will be automatically submitted to the corresponding supervisor of the project for assessment. Possibly the corresponding supervisor will contact you to request additional information.
