Here is an overview of all universities in Austria that offer PhD programs in Computer Science. Browse to see more information.
The Institute of Science and Technology Austria (IST Austria) is a PhD-granting research institution dedicated to cutting-edge research in the computer, mathematical, physical and life sciences. Located in Klosterneuburg on the outskirts of Vienna and established jointly by the federal government of Austria and the provincial government of Lower Austria, the Institute was inaugurated in 2009 and will grow to about 90 research groups by 2026.
As a PhD student at TU Vienna, you are a member of the Vienna PhD School of Informatics and encouraged to advance technology through independent creative research.
University of Vienna
Within the framework of this programme, students will attend a certain number of courses to learn about the current state of international research on the one hand, and become familiar with techniques of scientific research by participating in research groups on the other hand.
Johannes Kepler University Linz
Ph.D. candidates are trained to become scientists by learning in-depth how to formulate issues and conduct research at an international level. Independent scientific research is the focus, based on your undergraduate and graduate studies. Nothing can stand in the way of a research-oriented profession – at or outside of the university.
University of Salzburg
The doctorate degree is the last and highest step of the scientific education in the department and advances the students to do independent scientific work. Within the scope of the thesis, which is often carried out on financed projects, new contributions are built on topical current research projects in computer sciences.
In the Doctoral School of Computer Science at TU Graz, you will deal with the processing, storage and communication of information as well as with the structure and behaviour of information-processing systems. You will work independently on scientific challenges from the entire field of computer science. Much of the research work results from industrial cooperation projects and combines basic research with real-world applications.
University of Klagenfurt
Funding is made available to young scientists in recognition of the significant contribution these early stage researchers make to a university’s academic success, although not all doctoral graduates can or want to pursue a career in academia. Therefore, the University of Klagenfurt sees it as its duty to provide an environment that gives doctoral students the best possible chance of success in their chosen career.
University of Innsbruck
The main goal of the Doctor of Philosophy Programme Computer Sciences is to make an independent contribution to research through submission of an original piece of scientific work on the highest international level in one of the fields of competence offered at the Faculty of Mathematics, Computer Science and Physics. The programme concludes with a dissertation which is to be supervised by a team of supervisors and is completed by an oral exam taken before an examination board. Graduates are awarded the academic degree „Doctor of Philosophy (PhD)“.
