The principled development of modern computing systems involves the modeling and management of the interactions between discrete and continuous phenomena, coping with heterogeneous networks efficiently and sustainably, the possibility to access potentially unlimited hardware and software resources, handling of uncertainty, and the need to elaborate in real time massive amounts of data. It is our tenet that meeting these challenges requires one to develop a multidisciplinary knowledge that must be founded on firm modeling and reasoning capabilities. Therefore, the main aim of our Ph.D. studies is to provide students with the opportunity to develop those capabilities and to apply them to research challenges in Computer Science. To this end, we offer our graduate students introductory courses that provide the necessary formal background and specialized courses that introduce students to the newest developments in the areas of Reactive Systems, Software Engineering, and Algorithmic Aspects of Computer and Social Networks. -
