New international partnership in computer science
Western Sydney University has joined with Universitat Autonama de Barcelona (UAB) to offer a double PhD program in computer science, available in 2017.
The program is for students particularly interested in the cutting edge field of Artificial Intelligence (AI).
It brings together industry-leading scientists from Western Sydney University's School of Computing, Engineering and Mathematics and the MARCS Institute for Brain, Behaviour and Development with the Artificial Intelligence Research Institute (IIIA) of the Spanish National Research Council at the UAB.
The double degree allows students to utilise the full range of facilities at the two universities to conduct their research, and benefit from the research cultures at both institutions.
Positions in the program will be limited to four places each year, allowing two from the University and two from Barcelona. Students who complete the program will receive their doctorate in computer science from both universities.
Students who enter the program through Western Sydney University will be required to spend a total of six months across the program at the UAB.
