The computer science group at the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science is particularly strong in the following research areas:
- Algorithms, including Online Algorithms, Data Structures , Graph Algorithms, and Cryptology and Complexity Theory.
- Practical Applications of Combinatorial Optimization and Effective Algorithms.
- Bioinformatics and Cheminformatics and Computational Biology.
- Database Systems.
- Programming Languages and Verification
With a PhD degree from the University of Southern Denmark, in one of the above areas, you will be well groomed for a future international research career or a very interesting career in the private sector.
As a PhD student in Computer Science, in addition to taking part in the active research environment in the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science, you will in most cases have a research stay abroad. You will achieve research results that are publishable in well respected international scientific journals, and you will present your results at high quality international conferences. As part of your PhD programme, you will also acquire teaching and knowledge dissemination skills and establish a broad academic basis by attending specialised PhD courses.
