Where academic tradition
meets the exciting future

TUCS Graduate Programmes

TUCS Graduate Programmes continue the long-standing cooperation in PhD education and research in Information Technologies and Mathematics in the Turku region, formalized through the Turku Centre for Computer Science (TUCS). TUCS offers two doctoral programmes: Doctoral Programme in Mathematics and Computer Sciences at the University of Turku and Doctoral Network in Information Technologies and Mathematics at the Åbo Akademi University.

TUCS Graduate Programmes offer a framework for studying for the doctoral (Ph.D.) degree in Computer Science, Mathematics, Information Systems, Computer Engineering, Communication Systems, and Microelectronics. Study time for a full-time student is expected to be four years. The language of instruction is English.

The cooperation between the University of Turku and Åbo Akademi University gives TUCS students the possibility to participate in courses at both universities. In addition, TUCS cooperation offers active exchange programmes with other leading European research groups.
