AIT's PhD program in collaboration with Aalborg University in Denmark
Athens Information Technology's recent establishment of a collaborative program provides qualifying students with a strong will to perform academic research the opportunity to pursue a PhD degree with Aalborg University (AAU) in Denmark (http://en.aau.dk/).
Following a modern approach to teaching and research, Aalborg University's
Qualified students with a desire to pursue high-quality research in any ICT field of interest to both AIT and AAU may apply for this program. The selected applications will be judged by the Doctoral School of AAU. Once approved, the students will acquire the status of Doctoral Student at AAU and will be supervised by AAU and AIT professors.
Students that enroll successfully on this program will have to comply with all academic procedures and practices of Aalborg University, including the acquisition of required course credits for the PhD degree, but will also enjoy access to all privileges of AAU doctoral students. The added value of the program is that doctoral students will be given the opportunity to benefit from the people, lab infrastructure, services, research projects and other activities at both institutions, as well as from their joint collaboration.
All students that enroll to the program will have their progress periodically monitored by the supervising professors and will have to file the requested reports. A joint faculty committee will also oversee the overall progress of all enrolled students and will provide any further administrative or other help needed by the students in order to guarantee a smooth and efficient PhD work.
Upon successful completion of the required course credits and research work, as judged by the academic supervisors and AAU's Doctoral School, the PhD candidates will present their thesis defense before a PhD Examination Committee at Aalborg, which will decide on the awarding of the PhD degree of Aalborg University.
PhD applications for this program may be submitted to:
Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University
The Information Networking Institute
“Overall it was an unique and fascinating experience. Participating in this multi-disciplinary course, obtaining state-of-the-art knowledge and hands on experience in many areas of network telecommunications and information technology, collaborating with an outstanding faculty, interacting with professors and students overseas and being an active member of the CMU community are only some of the competitive advantages of the program. The solid and interdisciplinary background I obtained through the MSIN program, along with AIT’s intense research activities, provided me with the necessary qualifications to continue with my PhD.”
