Erasmus+ PWs@PhD Project: international schools in Software Engineering

Pathways at PhD

The PWs@PhD project focuses on Software Engineering discipline that has the same core as Computer Science. The overall aim of the project is to support the development, modernization and internalization of software engineering higher education in the target countries while helping also EU countries in strengthening their PhD programs and them making more attractive for international students. The project will create an opportunity to build and offer a sustainable multi-disciplinary, multi-cultural and multi-region, multi-institutions, and multi-perspectives program for educating the next generation of software engineering professors.

The PWs@PhD project develops a strategic network, a program, and a framework for education in Software Engineering. All the partner universities have specific expertise in different areas that the program will make available for all the other partners in the project. In practice the proposed program is structured in 7 development work packages. Each WP details 2 week intense school organized at different universities roughly every 6 months.
