Faculty-Wide Courses by the TekNat Faculty

Courses by the IT Department

The IT Department offers a core curriculum of PhD courses regularly. In addition, PhD courses in the form of seminars and guest lectures are often organised, in order to cover special issues and timely research topics. Here are the course lists of the four PhD programmes (including those of their specialisations):

Every PhD student is free to attend every course of every programme, so all four lists should be browsed, especially that there are broad introductory courses in each list.
