Who we are
As the world’s first department dedicated to the study of today’s ever-growing networks, we strive to train skillful scientists who understand the structure and functions of large-scale social, economic and political systems. We are a group of sociologists, physicists and data scientists who combine data science tools with a network science approach to offer new and exciting ways to tackle complex problems impenetrable to linear-proportional thinking. We translate ideas into research projects, which are often funded through major grants from EU and U.S. agencies.
What we offer
PhD in Network Science / This pioneering, research-driven program will introduce you to network theory, methods and data so you can make sense of complex phenomena using simple principles of making network links. We offer advanced training in theoretical and computational methods, challenging coursework on the basic concepts and theories of large-scale networks, and hands-on experience in taming massive datasets.
Working across disciplines, you will learn how to measure and predict the dynamics of complex networks —biological, social, physical or technical. You will have the opportunity to focus on a specific field, such as mathematics, economics, sociology, political science or environmental science, and take part in cross-border research projects. By the end of your studies, you will develop into an independent researcher who is able to uncover and untangle the patterns of our connected world.
What you will study
Where your degree will take you
Be it academia, government or business, there’s a rapidly growing demand for network and data scientists in our increasingly interconnected, global society. Applied network scientists are sought after by tech giants and digital disruptors who want to improve users’ online experience. They are also employed as consultants for developing business infrastructures or as risk mitigation experts at major financial institutions.
