PhD studies lead to the award of a doctorate (PhD) degree and are regulated by the Doctoral Studies Rules and Regulations.
In order to be accepted for Doctoral Studies, the applicants must hold a MSc Degree relevant to the subject areas of Computer, Electrical and Communications Engineering; the Master Thesis is a prerequisite. In exceptional cases, BSc degree holders from:
- Computer and Electrical / Electronic Engineering Departments;
- Engineering School Departments;
- Natural Sciences Departments; and
- Technological Institutes Departments (T.E.I.) with Program Studies relevant to the subject areas of the Department
can be admitted, with the requirement to successfully attend the MSc Program of the Department, during which they will conduct a Master Thesis.
The minimum duration for a PhD is 3 years for those holding a MSc Degree and 4 years in the other case. The maximum duration is 8 years for all candidates.
Those interested in pursuing a PhD can apply throughout the academic year, and must be recommended by a faculty member of the Department. This faculty member must submit the acceptance proposal, describing the theme of the work, and the other two members which will form the Advisory Committee.
