In the Doctoral program, students study more advanced mathematics and are expected to produce novel research results. They are given the necessary training to become competent mathematicians and independent researchers. Until now, about 45% of the PhDs produced by the DMS have become professors of mathematics, computer science, or related fields, while the rest are employed in research institutes or industry.
