The International Max Planck Research School for Computer Science (IMPRS-CS) offers a fully funded graduate program in cooperation with the Saarbrücken Graduate School of Computer Science at Saarland University.
The program leads to a doctoral degree (PhD) and is open to students who already hold
a research-oriented Master's degree in Computer Science (or an equivalent degree).
Admitted students will receive a support contract that covers all living expenses and tuition fees. These support contract recipients are automatically members of the Saarbrücken Graduate School of Computer Science.
Applications should be submitted to the IMPRS-CS; members of the Graduate School are also involved in the admissions process.
The IMPRS-CS graduate program is organized in collaboration with the MPI for Informatics, the MPI for Software Systems, and the Department of Computer Science at Saarland University, all three of which rank among the very best scientific research institutions in Computer Science in Europe.
Students who have a four-year Bachelor's degree in computer science with excellent academic performance and a strong research background or research interest canapply with the Saarbrücken Graduate School of Computer Science to enter the qualification phase of the PhD program.
- Master's Programs
Students who have a very good Bachelor's degree in Computer Science and first want to pursue a Master's degree in Computer Science or Visual Computing can apply with the respective Master's program at Saarland University. A small number of admitted students who show excellent performance and promise are selected for IMPRS-CS scholarships and become members of the IMPRS-CS.
Interested students should apply directly for admission to the Master’s program in Computer Science, the Master’s program in Visual Computing and the Master’s program in Mathematics and Computer Science .
