PhD in Informatics

Objectives and contents of the programme

This PhD studies integrate in the new framework of the European Higher Education Area (EHEA) and allow obtaining the PhD official title.


One of the most important novelties of the EHEA is that the PhD is totally focused on the realization and defence of the thesis.


The Informatics PhD studies are therefore oriented to the training of investigators, with an emphasis in the research methodology and techniques, that leads to the PhD thesis. The PhD studies also consolidate the diversity of approaches and approximations and the balance between basic and applied research, so a rich intellectual atmosphere is possible, necessary condition for quality PhD research.


This PhD Informatics studies are a continuation of the old PhD Informatics program, which received the Quality Mention award by the Education and Science Ministry (MEC). In the same way, this PhD is integrated in the Official Engineering Postgraduate Program, which also received the Quality Mention by the MEC.
