    About the department

    The Department of Computer Science features a broad range of synergistic activities within research and education in the general area of computer science, including curiosity-driven research and targeted research in collaboration with industrial partners, as well as traditional university education, with a unique problem- and project-based focus, and continued education and knowledge dissemination.

    About Integrated PhD

    Integrated PhD stipends are allocated to individuals who have not yet completed a Master’s degree and who wish to begin a PhD study in connection with a Master study. Thus, a prerequisite for acceptance is that the candidate is enrolled in a relevant Master’s programme at Aalborg University, such as computer science, software, and IT.  

    An Integrated stipend consists of two parts: A and B. During part A, candidates are enrolled simultaneously in the Master’s programme and in the PhD programme. The stipend consists of two SU-PhD Grants per month (SU: The Danish students’ Grants and Loans Scheme). One SU-PhD grant equals DKK 6.321 (2021 level). SU-PhD Grants are paid for a maximum of two years. When the Master’s degree has been obtained, candidates will be employed as a PhD fellow for two years according to the present collective agreement. Part B has a maximum duration of two years.

    Note

    • Based on whether successful applicants already hold a master degree, they will either receive a regular PhD stipend (3 years) or an Integrated PhD stipend (4 years).
    • For further information, please contact Professor Bin Yang, byang@cs.aau.dk.
    • Integrated PhD stipends are open for appointment from 1 September 2021.
