The doctoral school offers the opportunity to pursue a doctoral degree to those with a master's degree who are interested in research and development in applied and theoretical computer science. The doctoral school deals with three main topic areas: applied computer science, information technology for pro­duction engineering (including measuring and control engineering information systems), and material flow systems (information technology for logistics). The doctoral programme can be undertaken through a course-based structure or independently. The doctoral school deals with three main topic areas:
