Reasons for a joint Program

This PhD Program in Mathematics follows from the will, jointly expressed by the Scientific Councils of the Department of Pure Mathematics of the Faculty of Sciences of University of Porto and of the Department of Mathematics of the Faculty of Science and Technology of the University of Coimbra, of creating a graduate program in Mathematics that may become an international reference school, aiming therefore at achieving the highest quality standards.

The Departments of Mathematics of the Universities of Coimbra and Porto have played a leading role in Mathematics in Portugal and share a remarkable scientific complementarity, together covering – and, in several cases, leading – a wide range of mathematical areas on the Portuguese scene. The PhD Program in Mathematics meets the need to develop, organize, and direct to an international audience, the increasing activity of the two Departments in the mentoring of PhD students.
