Computer Science (PhD)
School of Information Technology & Computing
The Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in Computer Science program is designed for students who have particular interest in advancing either an academic or industrial career in computer science.
The program provides students with the platform to acquire and demonstrate broad knowledge in specific areas of computer science such as artificial intelligence, computer graphics, data management and mining, scientific computing, software engineering and advanced programming languages.
The program provides opportunities for senior leadership positions in academia as well as the foundation for graduates to start and own their computer-based services companies.
It is important to note that while we value the need for students to actively undergo the coursework requirements of the program, we emphasize that satisfactory completion of coursework is not the primary objective of the PhD program.
It is mandatory for each student to demonstrate mastery of the specific area of interest, write and publish quality articles in credible peer-reviewed journals and conference proceedings; and produce a quality original disser- tation that contributes to the existing body of knowledge.
The program is rigorous but it also provides flexible timing for busy professionals to advance their careers.
