Information and Communication Technology

Description and objectives of the seminar

Computer science is a dynamically developing scientific area with a very wide application in the modern world. There is a huge demand for IT industry specialists, including programmers, analysts, IT system designers, and graduates of various IT specializations.

The offer of the seminar is addressed to people who intend to develop their knowledge in the field of engineering and technology in the discipline of Information and Communication Technology, and to prepare and defend a doctoral dissertation. The doctorate is of high value not only in the scientific work, but also in business and consulting, as well as e.g. in public administration. Having a doctoral degree for people planning an academic career is a necessary stage of development, and also creates a wide range of attractive job opportunities in the IT industry, both in Poland and abroad.

The University of Social Sciences has been authorized since 2012 to confer doctoral degrees in the field of computer science. Meeting the need for continuous development of knowledge and qualifications, our university offers a doctoral seminar that prepares participants for a doctoral degree in the discipline of Information and Communication Technology.

During the doctoral seminar, participants gain knowledge and the skills required to conduct scientific research and to present results. The main aim of the two-year doctoral seminar is to prepare the participants for the scientific work, the result of which should be a doctoral dissertation and obtaining a doctoral degree in the field of engineering and technology, in the discipline of Information and Communication Technology.

The procedures leading to the doctoral degree are carried out on the basis of the paragraph 197 of the Act of July 20, 2018 Law on Higher Education and Science (Journal of Laws 2018, item 1668, as amended) in the extramural mode. See Regulations of doctoral seminars
