The Ph.D. Program provides computer science research opportunities for individuals who have a career goal of:
Research and teaching at a university
A career in industry or a national lab
Multidisciplinary research, such as biomedical computing
The Ph.D. program usually requires a minimum of four years of study and research beyond the bachelor's degree. Students interested in the Ph.D., and with a sufficient computer science background, may apply to the Ph.D. program directly after the B.S. degree.
