The Department of Informatics Engineering of the University of Coimbra, 
Portugal (http://www.dei.uc.pt) has created a new Ph.D. Program in 
Information Science and Technology, with the duration of three years, 
including a first year where the student must complete a set of four 
courses and write a thesis proposal. The initial courses and the thesis 
proposal will grant the student 60 ECTS.

After that, research work will be carried out in one of the nine groups 
of the research centre hosted at the department (http://cisuc.dei.uc.pt) 
under the supervision of a Department member in order to write the 
Doctoral dissertation.

The Department is offering PhD scholarships for the year 2006/2007 for 
top students that join the doctoral program. This includes a monthly 
allowance of 980 €, plus security insurance and tuition. Students that 
are granted scholarships are expected to perform 6 hours of weekly 
teaching assistance at the undergraduate level. The scholarships are 
non-renewable but further funding may be available for outperforming 
students, either from on-going projects or directly from the Portuguese 
government.
