Our research education program spans a large spectrum that includes the theoretical underpinning of computer science, the development of applied embedded and distributed systems, the design of computer hardware, the design of software languages, the processes, practices, and methods of real-world software engineering and realistic drawing of images in computer games and films. When you study in the doctoral program in Computer Science and Engineering, you will contribute to the development of theories and concepts to describe, understand, and develop the use of computers. By doing a PhD in Computer science and engineering, you will gain a broad understanding of current research issues and practical applications, in-depth insights into one or more fields, as well as knowledge of research methodology. More details are available in the study plan.
The graduate school is organised within the Department of Computer Science and Engineering.

Regarding older syllabus, please contact the first vice/vice head of department.
A doctoral student admitted to an older syllabus may earn a degree in accordance with this, provided that the current Appointment regulation for doctoral programmes and current Local Qualifications Framework – third cycle qualifications are followed.
Doctoral students admitted to an older syllabus of graduate school Computer Science and Engineering can, however, change to the current syllabus by an application to the Deputy/Vice Head of Department. The change must be documented in the individual study plan.
The graduate school is regulated by the Appointment regulation for doctoral programmes and the Local Qualifications Framework for Chalmers University of Technology - third cycle qualifications and is described in the syllabus for the graduate school. In the event of any conflict between the documents, the Appointment regulation for doctoral programmes and the Local Qualifications Framework for Chalmers University of Technology - third cycle qualifications are governing.
