We are pleased to announce that applications to the Doctoral Program in Digital Media (PDMD) are open to the New University of Lisbon, to the University of Porto and for the FCT scholarhips.
The exciting program was created through the partnership between the New University of Lisbon, University of Porto and University of Texas in Austin, TX, USA. It is a 4-year PhD program, which is aimed at students with a Masters degree (2nd cycle Bologna or pre-Bologna) in the areas of information / communication sciences, multimedia, interactive design and all scientific and technological digital media areas. Digital media is an area that is rapidly growing and has gained increasing importance in our daily lives.
The Digital Media PhD program aims to train researchers, academics and leaders in innovative processes, to enable them to conceptualize and development digital products and services, taking into account target audiences, contexts, and goals relevant to several distribution channels.
We are pleased to announce that applications to the Doctoral Program in Networked Interactive Cyber Physical Systems (NETSyS) are open until June 28th, 2015!
This cutting-edge program, taught by Instituto Superior Técnico and Carnegie Mellon University, under the Carnegie Mellon Portugal partnership, aims to train researchers, professors and professionals to deal with innovative processes/situations, but also to enable them to analyze complex situations and propose new solutions, as well as giving them the ability to manage multidisciplinary teams. On this program M-ITI acts as hosting institution. Learn more
