PhDDoctoral School of Applied Informatics and Applied Mathematics

More information 


Program description:
8 semesters in two parts. At the end of the first four semesters (education phase) a complex exam is obligatory. Those successful can continue the second phase (Semesters 5-8) which concentrates on research and thesis writing. The Doctoral School of Applied Informatics (GSAI) started its activities in 2009. Its aim is to train researchers, who are familiar with both soft and hard computer sciences, computing theory, and have multi-disciplinary knowledge, communication skillsand teamwork experience that make them able to solve real industrial research and development tasks. The aim of hard computer science (hard computing) is the analysis and design of technical and physical processes using quantitative, formal, and categorization methods. The aim of soft computer science (soft computing) is the analysis and design of intelligent engineering systems. It typically uses multivalued logic such as the fuzzy logic, as well as results from neural networks, probabilistic methods such as the genetic algorithms, chaos theory and machine learning. The Óbuda University and the Universita degli Studi di Milano has a joint PhD Degree program in Informatics since 2011 the participants of which may obtain PhD degree from both universities.
