Plan of Studies
The Doctoral Program in Information Science and Technology consists of 3 years that may be extended up to a maximum of 5 years. In the first year the student must enroll in four courses plus the thesis proposal in order to complete a set of 60 ECTS:
- 24 ECTS obtained after the completion of four courses.
- 36 ECTS after writing a valid Thesis Proposal.
No student can enroll in Thesis without completing and successfully defending the Thesis Proposal.
The Thesis Proposal
The Thesis Proposal is a written essay that should include a detailed report on the state of the art and work related to the research theme, the description of the problem(s) intended to be solved, the possible techniques or methods used to solve that/those problem(s), an estimate of the expected results, a list of the papers that are targeted to be published and an activity plan. The thesis proposal will be evaluated in a public session by a Committee of three Professors.
Once the student obtains the 60 ECTS he/she should dedicate full time to research activities aiming at the writing of the final dissertation. This research work will be supervised by a department member and will be structured according to the framework of one of the CISUC research groups[.
During the research period the PhD students will be totally integrated in the activities of one research group from CISUC. The final Thesis should be submitted within a maximum of 5 years time after the beginning of the course.
