The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering offers doctoral programs in Computer Science that lead to the award of a PhD. The Doctor of Philosophy degree is a research degree that recognizes mastery of a field of study, a demonstrated ability to conduct independent research, and the dissemination of significant and original contributions to the body of knowledge in that field. The Graduate School of Engineering and Management specifies the degree requirements for the school’s doctoral program. The doctoral programs offered within the Department are differentiated from one another based on the area of research specialization chosen by each student.
Computer Science faculty are currently conducting research in the following areas:
Degree Required: MS in relevant area, with accredited BS in Computer Science
Test Required: GRE 156V/151Q (within the last five years)
GPA Required: 3.50 (MS); 3.00 (BS)
Waivers to the above criteria may be granted on a case-by-case basis. Therefore, individuals whose academic credentials fall below any of the above criteria may apply.
