PHD Data Science

The PhD Network in Data Science is a collaboration between two Swiss universities of applied sciences (ZHAW Zurich University of Applied Sciences and SUPSI University of Applied Sciences and Arts of Southern Switzerland) and four Swiss universities (UZH University of Zurich, UNINE University of Neuchatel, UNIBE University of Bern and UNIBAS University of Basel).

The aim is to offer students with a master degree (including degrees from an university of applied sciences) the opportunity to obtain a PhD in cooperation between a university of applied sciences and a university.
