Explore the frontiers of AI at Alma Mater Europaea with our cutting-edge PhD program in Applied Artificial Intelligence
Alma Mater Europaea is proud to offer an immersive and research-focused PhD program in Applied Artificial Intelligence (AI). Our fully accredited program aims to shape the next generation of innovators, researchers, and thought leaders who will drive the future of AI technology.
The Alma Mater's PhD in Applied AI is deeply research-oriented. Doctoral candidates will get an opportunity to work on a variety of projects under the mentorship of our distinguished faculty. Doctoral supervisors include members of the European Academy of Sciences and Arts, which unites two thousand leading scholars, 34 of whom are Nobel Prize winners.
In this 3-year doctoral program, which will start in October 2023, students intensely work on a research project resulting in an AI application and prepare doctoral dissertations. The program is suitable for both full-time students and those who work. You can study from any time zone or study while working in one of our partner corporations and research labs throughout the European Union.
Studying is blended with weekly online sessions and intense week-long in-person meetings in Europe and US once per semester. The study language is English.
Our curriculum is designed to provide students with a comprehensive understanding of AI, including machine learning, deep learning, natural language processing, computer vision, robotics, and AI ethics. It is curated by a globally renowned faculty, pioneering research in AI, and is regularly updated to reflect the rapid advancements in the field.
The Applied AI PhD study is open to citizens or residents of any country who have previously completed bachelor's or master's degree studies or equivalent in any discipline, which is typically received after four or five years of higher education. The candidates who do not have a background in Computer Sciences, AI or related fields take introductory training in computer science and applications of AI in areas such as management, economics, public policy, medicine, or others, in the first few months of their studies.
We believe in merging academic rigor with practical innovation. We are excited to invite experts with revolutionary ideas to integrate the development of their AI solutions into our prestigious PhD program in Applied Artificial Intelligence. Selected candidates with promising ideas will receive full scholarships and offer to develop their proposals in top-of-the-line corporations and research labs.
This unique opportunity provides a platform to amplify your ideas' impact and gain recognition as an influential thought leader in the AI landscape.

We encourage you to bring your ideas to life and create AI solutions that can change the world. Let's redefine the future of AI together at Alma Mater Europaea.
Alma Mater Europaea is pleased to announce full-tuition research grants, partnerships and teaching assistantships for Applied AI projects. Global corporations, industry leaders and influential research groups worldwide will be involved in financing doctoral projects.
If you have a specific Artificial Intelligence project or research topic that you care deeply about and are interested in studying it from a theoretical angle, we invite you to combine your work with a doctorate.
Grants are available in 120,000 Euros for three years (40,000 Euros per year) and more. Selected proposals will have the opportunity to partner with global AI industry leaders and may develop million-dollar world-changing solutions. Read our Grants page to know more about these opportunities.
"The future of humanity is closely connected with artificial intelligence research," stressed Klaus Mainzer, the European Academy of Sciences and Arts president and author of the Artificial Intelligence: When do Machines Take Over? (Springer 2020), in March 2023 when Alma Mater announced the Applied AI PhD program.
"Our doctoral researchers will be in the center of the innovation and discovery. Our university will support you in presenting your research at top-tier conferences, publishing in high-impact journals, and creating a strong professional network within the global AI research community. We believe in pushing the boundaries of human knowledge and making impactful contributions to society," said Ludvik Toplak, the Alma Mater Europaea ECM president.
