I. General description

Julius Maximilian University Würzburg (JMUW) and Lviv Polytechnic National University (LPNU) offer to highly qualified master students in:

  • Applied Mathematics and Informatics,
  • Computer Science,
  • System Analysis and
  • Software Engineering

The language of instruction of the program is English. The JCP is completed by a Certificate issued jointly by both universities.

Both universities selected some of their top scientists for this program. During one semester, they combine their expertise to provide the students with skills serving as basis for a further career in international or national academia or companies.
Courses completed successfully within the Joint Certificate Program can be included simultaneously in regular master courses at Lviv Polytechnic National University as electives.

Upon successful completion of the JCP, Julius Maximilian
University Würzburg will offer PhD stipends for the best LPNU students, who successfully completed the JCP.

JMUW will offer for LPNU PhD candidates the opportunity to spend 1-2 semesters at JMUW as mobility students.

Excellent students who are interested in experiencing work life in Germany will receive help in finding internships in German companies that support the program.

Students, who want to be eligible for a PhD stipend, or who want to go to Germany for an internship need to speak (some) German. For students who don’t speak German, or who want to improve their German, German language courses and language tests are offered in the framework of this program.

The number of admitted students is limited to 50.

In the winter semester 2014/2015, the program includes six modules (corresponding to 5 ECTS Credit points each):

  • Computational Geometry I, a long slow semestral course taught by Prof. Taras Banakh (Lviv University) and preparing the students for;
  • Computational Geometry II, an intensive block course taught by Prof. Alexander Wolff (University of Würzburg);
  • Computational Complexity, a course taught by Prof. Klaus Wagner (1)(University Würzburg) in the 2 weeks Nov. 17-29
  • German language, a course delivered by teachers of the Chair of Foreign Languages of Lviv Polytechnic.
  • Intellectual data analysis, a long slow semestral course taught by Prof. Roman Tkachenko (LPNU)
  • Advanced signal and image processing , a long slow semestral course taught by Prof. Dmytro Peleshko (LPNU)

All the courses are taught at Lviv Polytechnic National University. Each course ends with an exam.

II. Application

Interested students must register electronically for the program at Lviv Polytechnic National University and the University of Würzburg. Application should be submitted to the contact person Prof. D.Peleshko (dpeleshkoatgmail [dot] com).
