Doctoral Programme in Information and Systems (DPIS)

The Doctoral Programme in IS operates in the areas of computer science, mathematics and statistics, and it offers doctoral research opportunities on the respective themes, such as:
- data analysis, data mining and statistical modelling,
- mathematics and mathematical methods of data processing, and
- software, databases and data systems.

The programme operates in the Faculty of Information Technology and Communication Sciences. The steering committee appointed to the programme is responsible for planning, arranging and developing the doctoral programme together with the academic officer.

The Academic Board of TAU has decided that the Doctoral Programme in Information and Systems (DPIS) will be discontinued on 31 July 2021. The fields of research covered by the programme will be transferred to the doctoral Programme of Computing and Electrical Engineering (DPCEE). The transitional period following the discontinuation is 4 years, which means that students currently enrolled in the DPIS programme will be able to graduate from the programme up until 31 July 2025 or transfer to the oteher programme. The student's progress in the doctoral degree will be monitored in connection of considering the transfer.
