Ph.D. Ph.D. - Computer Science

A Ph.D. in Computer Science represents the highest academic achievement in the field of Computer Science. This program is designed to provide students with the knowledge, skills, and mindset necessary to conduct cutting-edge research in Computer Science. Those pursuing this degree are expected to contribute their research findings to leading international journals and conferences within the field.

The Doctor of Philosophy in Computer Science offers a limited amount of coursework to establish a strong foundation in the subject matter. The primary focus is on original research, leading to the completion of a doctoral thesis. This process involves in-depth exploration of a research topic, encompassing idea generation, rigorous mathematical analysis, problem formulation, a comprehensive literature review, software development, and performance evaluation.

Typically, students select their research area and receive guidance from faculty within the first year while completing any required coursework. Subsequently, they progress through coursework to build research expertise and breadth, defend their thesis proposal, and ultimately defend their thesis. Successfully meeting these requirements culminates in the award of a Ph.D. in Computer Science, signifying expertise and significant contributions to the field.
