Program Description: EPFL offers an interdisciplinary program for graduate studies in computer, communication and information sciences. The study areas presently include systems, communications, signal processing, and all aspects of computer science. We currently offer only a doctoral degree program. The study in the program has three aspects. First, a number of courses are offered to let the students develop strong theoretical background. Second, more advanced courses, projects and a variety of seminars introduce the research problems of current interest in many fields as well as equipping the student with the advanced techniques that may be useful in attacking them. The third and major part of the study is original research conducted under the direct supervision of a faculty member that results in a PhD thesis.
Available Financial Aid: Financial support is available for the best candidates on a competitive basis.
