Below you will find a short description from the 7 universities offering 8 different PhD programmes in Computer Science and IT.

University of Southern Denmark

The PhD programme in Computer Science at the University of Southern Denmark is based at the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science. The department has a very international orientation, with less than half of the faculty members in computer science being Danish. The PhD programme covers the entire spectrum of Computer Science competences required to produce quality solutions to computationally hard and computation or data intensive problems, from theoretical analyses to actual implementations on a variety of platforms.

Danish Technical University

For almost two centuries DTU, Technical University of Denmark, has been dedicated to fulfilling the vision of H.C. Ørsted—the father of electromagnetism—who founded the university in 1829 to develop and create value using the natural sciences and the technical sciences to benefit society.

Today, DTU is ranked as one of the foremost technical universities in Europe, continues to set new records in the number of publications, and persistently increase and develop our partnerships with industry, and assignments accomplished by DTU’s scientific advice.

Aalborg University

The PhD programme in Computer Science & Engineering is part of The Doctoral School of Engineering and Science. The programme aims at:

• A high international level in the education of researchers

• Integration of the individual PhD student and the individual doctoral programme into active research groups with a strong international reputation

Aarhus University, Department of Engineering

The Department of Engineering at Aarhus University provides a very strong interdisciplinary research environment, in different areas of engineering. At the Electrical and Computer Engineering section provides closely related engineering disciplines that focus on the development of hardware and software for intelligent units and networks. This includes hardware at system and component level as well as many different types of software for controlling electronic devices and networks.

A PhD degree from Aarhus leads to great job opportunities. After graduation many of our students are employed in the electronics and IT industry in the Aarhus region, which includes Terma, Vestas, Systematic, Mjølner and numerous small innovative companies. However, many choose to seek opportunities internationally, and many obtain academic positions either in Denmark or abroad. At the Electrical and Computer Engineering section we benefit from external funding from a large amount of both national and international funding agencies.

IT University of Copenhagen

The PhD program at the IT University of Copenhagen (ITU) includes many academic disciplines: Computer Science, Software Engineering, Information Systems, Management and Social Sciences are represented along with Conceptual Design and Creative Practice-based Computing.
At ITU, Information Technology is a tool for managing mental constructs: these constructs are as diverse as organisation charts, artworks, mathematical logic, software, games and so on. This is illustrated by the ITU triangle, which consists of the Arts, Sciences and Business – each placed in each vertex. The edges between vertices are intended for interaction between the disciplines: with multi-disciplinarily research being encouraged and supported. The area of the triangle represents the interdisciplinary possibilities.
Many different views of Information Technology make innovative interdisciplinary research projects possible at ITU. Computer science is strongly represented within this structure, and so are Software Engineering, Business Systems, Design, Media and Communication.
