University of Göttingen

Ph.D. in Computer Science (PCS)

The “Ph.D. Programme in Computer Science” (PCS) is a Ph.D. programme offered by the graduate school of the Faculty of Natural Sciences and Mathematics: Georg-August University School of Science (GAUSS). PCS was created by the participating institutions of the Center for Computational Sciences and the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science at the Georg-August-Universität Göttingen in 2005 with the mission to provide high-quality Ph.D. education on a high scientific level within three years. The PCS programme includes lectures, seminars, and methods courses. In addition, PCS encourages to participate in international conferences or workshops. PCS also emphasizes soft skills such as teamwork, problem-solving and moderation techniques. The Ph.D. candidates are obliged to take part in tutoring activities.

Each PCS applicant needs to choose a research area from a computer science related research group, e.g. Center for Computational Sciences or Institute of Computer Science. Afterwards, a related supervisor from the list of eligible examiners needs to be found, which is normally one of the group leaders of the chosen research group.

PCS is open to students from Germany and from abroad who hold a Master's degree in Computer Sciences (or equivalent). After the successful completion of the PCS programme, the international degree of Ph.D. (Doctor of Philosophy) or alternatively the degree of Dr. rer. nat. (Doctor Rerum Naturalium) will be awarded.
