The applications for the PhD in Networked Cyber Physical Systems (NETSyS) will be open from October 10 - November 11, 2016.
The PhD in Networked Interactive Cyber Physical Systems is the new program four year full-time program about to be launched by IST-UL (Instituto Superior Técnico da Universidade de Lisboa) in a partnership with CMU Portugal (Carnegie Mellon University) and LARSyS.
This program is aimed at students with a masters degree (2nd cycle Bologna or pre-Bologna) in engineering (electronic, computers, mechanical, aerospace and IT), computer science and applied mathematics and it offers a high level of expertise and skills in cyber-physical interactive systems. This PhD will provide students with the conceptual, scientific and technological tools to deal with the most challenging problems that happen in some of the most relevant real-life situations in the world. The fast progress that has been made in the field of systems engineering are allowing for the development and deployment of large-scale operating systems that interact with humans and physical systems, which are at the center of a vast number of applications in real world contexts and have significant scientific, economic and social impact.
Interested applicants should contact us as soon as possible to help describe the process and guide their application.More information on our website http://app.m-iti.org/ , or contact us by email or telephone (351) 291 721 006.
