Welcome to the Doctoral Program in Information Security!
The Program aims at training experts capable of carrying out autonomous research activities in the broad area of information security, mastering relevant subjects in Mathematics, Computer Science and Electrical Engineering, including computational complexity, cryptography, systems security and information theory.
The program was restructured in the beginning of 2021. The main changes were:
• New curricular plan: 30 ECTS in courses; thesis of 210 ECTS;
• Courses: courses shared with the 2nd cycle will be removed;
• Removal of the qualification exam: substituted by an evaluation of the thesis proposal by the Thesis Advisory Commission (CAT).
