Ph.D. Program Overview
Our research-oriented Ph.D. program in Computer Science prepares exceptional students for careers at the cutting edge of academia and industry. The foremost goal of the program is for students to conduct outstanding research that advances the state of the art in their research area. Students are also expected to get some basic familiarity with various disciplines of computer science through breadth courses.
What makes our program special?
- Outstanding research groups and distinguished faculty.
- Our students are offered guaranteed support through a MacCracken fellowship, independent of the availability of funds by the academic advisor. This offers unparalleled flexibility and peace of mind to the student.
- Located in one of the most vibrant parts of New York City, our department is within short walking distance of several of the world's leading research labs. As a result, many of our students end up developing close ties with those labs, further advancing their research, and their integration in academia and industry after graduation.
