Computer Science and Informatics

The CSE department offers a doctoral program in Computer Science and Informatics with one of two specializations. A specialization in Computer Science is designed for students in core computing disciplines such as database systems, networking, formal methods, knowledge engineering, programming languages, embedded systems or parallel processing.

Alternatively, a specialization in Software and Information Technology is applied and multidisciplinary in nature as research communities seek collaboration among domain experts. Areas of research in this stream may include personal mobile distributed computing, multidisciplinary simulation analysis, computational biology, marketing informatics, digital media and animation, etc.
