Tuition fee

From the perspective of a student, tuition is an investment in his or her own future.

Tuition includes:

  • classes,
  • individual consultations,
  • taking exams,
  • complete literature in printed or electronic form,
  • software licenses,
  • unlimited access to the Internet,
  • use of other resources of the faculty,
  • all certificates, forms, diplomas and so on.

The price of doctoral studies is 5.000€.

In short, there are no hidden costs for the student.

Maximum discount of 40% - for each completed year of undergraduate and master studies at the RAF future doctoral students are entitled to 8% discount.

Prices are in Euros for one year of study, and the payment is made in dinars according to the middle exchange rate at the National Bank of Serbia on the day of payment.

Skills

In the doctoral study program of computer science, students acquire the following skills:

  • Solving problems using linear and integer programming,
  • Efficient use of matrix operations,
  • Enumerating , elements of combinatorial constructions, combinatorial algorithms and discrete optimization,
  • The characterization of optimal solutions and finding efficient algorithms for optimization problems over discrete structures,
  • The standard methods for solving complex problems and the use of approximate and probabilistic algorithms,
  • Critical analysis of existing solutions and synthesis of original solutions into the theory of algorithms, graph theory, mathematical programming and combinatorial optimization.
