Doctor of Philosophy in Engineering Sciences
31/08/2023 - 31/10/2023
The complexity of today’s technological problems requires that experts be addressed by searching for, adapting, and integrating globally available alternatives. This Doctoral program contributes to this perspective and allows for new research and development for the industry, regulatory agencies, and academic activity. In addition, the Doctoral program is a platform for specialized consultancy, creating innovative companies, and acting as an agent of profound technological change within the company.
Our students can do an internship in top-level foreign research centers financed by the school or the university. They can also present their research results at international conferences and publish articles in mainstream journals. In addition, they can opt for a dual degree through one of the cooperation agreements currently in force with prestigious foreign universities.
Years of Accreditation
- Program accredited by CNA-Chile for five years until 9 November 2028.
The objective of this program is to provide students with the most advanced knowledge (state-of-the-art knowledge) in the area of Computer Science through a systematic program of courses and the completion of research leading to a doctoral thesis.
Obtaining the academic degree of Doctor of Philosophy in Engineering Sciences requires demonstrating mastery of the area of study and conducting research independently, making an original contribution to knowledge.
During their doctoral training, students will acquire competencies to face scientific and technological problems creatively and efficiently, and that, due to their diverse nature, require complementing solid theoretical and conceptual bases with the application of methodologies and techniques of analysis relevant to some of the research areas of the program’s areas of specialization.

Human-Oriented Computing and Systems
This line of research focuses on the processes and tools that exist for and due to the interaction between humans and people. The research focuses on the analysis of the interaction of processes between humans and computers, as well as the development of new technologies to improve these processes. In this line, different points of view converge from where we look at technology and its interaction with people, which includes software development and specification mechanisms, the study of the impact that interfaces and technologies have on human processes, and the data they generate. human-computer processes.
This line of research seeks to generate basic knowledge and technological applications that can break the limits of current computing. Today, the emphasis of computational processes is on efficiency, in order to be able to work with as much data as quickly as possible, and flexibility, in order to generate tools with a high level of adaptability and autonomy. The entire computational process is covered, from the generation and management of data to the construction of artificial intelligence tools or relevant visualizations. In turn, the methods are broad, ranging from logical and mathematical tools, used to model and understand complex algorithms, to the development of intelligent applications with an impact on the industry.
