Graduate School for Computational Science
The PhD programme in Computational Science is a joint initiative of the University of Zurich and ETH Zurich, which aims to:
- Foster sustained interactions between PhD students, faculty and staff
- Promote exchanges between academia, industry and society enabled by computational science
Computational Science (CS) integrates Information Technology and Mathematics to address scientific and societal challenges such as Energy, Health, Climate and Finance.
CS is a unique method of scientific inquiry, complementing theory and experiments, providing us with unprecedented potential for scientific discovery and innovation.
Application and enrollment
The Computational Sciences PhD programme is a 3-4year MSc to PhD program. Participating students can choose from a broad selection of research topics and classes. Enrollment into the program is decided by an admission committee. In order to graduate, students need to fulfill the following requirements:
- Acquisition of 12 credit points of advanced courses
- Deposition and defense of a Ph.D. thesis describing the student’s original research work,
- Additional requirements imposed by the host institution (Universität or ETH Zurich) so as to comply fully with their regulations.
The final degree is conferred by either the Universtät or the ETH Zürich, depending on the academic affiliation of the host laboratory.
