PhD program

The Digital Media PhD program, proposed by the University of Porto and NOVA University of Lisbon, provides specialized training in the field of Digital Media, fostering a culture of innovation, creativity, entrepreneurship and mutual support between undergraduate students, professors and industry partners. The Digital Media PhD Program involves a full year of courses, including theoretical, methodological and laboratory-based work.
