Program Overview



The full name of the final degree is Doctor of Philosophy in Computational Sciences. The program will educate students and carry out significant research in Computational Science with specialization in important fields that require High Performance Computing such as Climate Modeling, Computational Physics, Machine Learning, Scientific Computing, Computational Chemistry, 3D Visualization and Computational Biology. More precisely, the program educates future researchers in mathematical modeling and computational methods and techniques needed to solve complex scientific and engineering problems, as well as in management and visualization of complex data sets.

The program provides the necessary educational setting where excellence in education and research are fostered through interdisciplinary collaboration on regional problems of global significance.


Program Structure and Requirements

The Cyprus Institute uses the European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS). Each course is worth 10 ECTS-credits. To satisfy the requirements of the PhD program, a student requires a total of 180 ECTS-credits, of which 50 ECTS-credits are from courses.
