Ph.D. programme by "Computer Architecture"



The objective of the doctoral programme Computer Architecture is to train researchers with international competence in some of the areas covered by the programme: computer architecture, operating systems, communications and networks of computers, and microelectronic design.

These researchers will be called on to contribute, within their fields of experience, to scientific, technical, social and economic progress, with the industries and institutions in which they will perform their professional tasks. In the field of teaching, the doctoral programme will also have the objective of training the lecturers who will be responsible for university teaching in the areas of knowledge covered by the programme.

To achieve these objectives, the program defines two specializations:

  1. High-performance Computing and Technology
  2. Communication Networks and Distributed Systems

Currently, academic comission is composed by professors Davide Careglio, José María Barcelò and Eduard Ayguadé.
