The Department of Informatics grants the academic degree of a Doctor of Natural Sciences or the academic degree of a Doctor of Engineering for independent scientific achievements.

Admission for a doctorate at the Department of Informatics requires that individuals fulfil certain requirements as specified in the Doctorate Regulations from 15 August 2006. In particular, candidates have to hold a master or diploma degree in a course of study over at least five years at a recognized university.

Applicants have to submit an application for the admission as a postgraduate with the Deanery of the Department of Informatics, including the topic and the mentors of the Department of Informatics (reviewer and second reviewer).
This application has to be approved and accepted by the Doctorate Committee. After this, the doctoral thesis can be handed in at the Deanery by way of verification of the scientific achievement. You should also announce your examiners here.
After the thesis has been submitted, an oral examination for the doctorate takes place within a given period of time.
