PhD Training

One of the main objectives of the DaSCI is to promote research activities through the initial and continuous training of future professionals in the area of Data Science and Computational Intelligence and their continuous professional development in universities, research centres or companies that demand this profile for their R&D departments.

Our lines of research are in line with the different areas of research that are worked in the Institute:

  • DATA SCIENCE AND BIG DATA (Coordinated by María José del Jesus, Sebastián Ventura and Salvador García)
  • COMPUTATIONAL INTELLIGENCE (Coordinated by Luis Martínez and Enrique Herrera)
  • DASCI APPLICATIONS (Coordinated by Oscar Cordón and Juan Manuel Górriz)

Attached a list of topics for doctoral theses, dissertations and master’s degrees.
