PhDs and Graduate School
The Department of Computer Science of Kaiserslautern University (TU Kaiserslautern) is one of the leading computer science research institutions in Germany. One of our main objectives is the mentoring of excellent PhDs. We always welcome outstanding students and researchers, and we encourage them to apply.
The Computer Science Graduate School (CSGS) at the University of Kaiserslautern provides an ideal environment for pursuing a doctoral degree in the area of Computer Science, at an internationally competitive level. We offer a full doctoral program, in which students receive focused, research-oriented training in a scientifically challenging, inspiring and motivating surrounding. Students participate in one of a variety of research groups that are directed by leading researchers in their respective area. They can thus benefit from and contribute to top-level research being conducted at the CS department.
CSGS offers a full doctoral program in close collaboration with a variety of research institutions situated around the University, such as the Fraunhofer Institutes for Experimental Software Engineering (IESE) and Industrial Mathematics (ITWM), the German Artificial Intelligence Research Center (DFKI), and the Max Planck Institute for Software Systems (MPI-SWS). This enables our students to gather insight into modern topics and applications in Computer Science and equips them with the knowledge and skills for a successful career in both industry and academia.
