The Ph.D. program in Computer Science presents both advanced instruction and opportunities for independent research. The Ph.D. degree is the highest academic degree offered, and graduates typically find employment as researchers in government or industry laboratories or as university faculty. Earning a Ph.D. degree requires initiative and responsibility, and the student is expected to make a significant contribution to computer-science knowledge by investigating a topic that is recognized as significant.

As the price of computers and related hardware drastically decreases, the most valuable component of any computing system increasingly becomes the SOFTWARE. Think about it. What would your Cellphone, iPod, XBox, PlayStation, Wii, or Notebook Computer be like without the SOFTWARE running on them? That's why the demand for our students is … expected to increase much faster than the average for all occupations.

Here, in the Department of Computer Science, we are developing computer scientists for exciting and prosperous careers in 21st Century Computing. This new age of Computing is focused more on the creative engineering aspects of software design & development than merely on programming. Our curriculum provides our students with exposure to Game Design, Cybersecurity, Robotics, Software Engineering, AI and Machine Learning, Data Science, Computational Intelligence, and more! Come join the excitement!
