Computer and Information Science PhD
The Computer and Information Science PhD prepares students to undertake independent research to promote science and engineering advances in the field of computer and information sciences. Doctoral students work closely with faculty at the frontier of research in the field, developing theory, methodology and experimental skills to investigate and solve advanced technological issues.
The program can be completed on either a full- or part-time basis, and classes take place during the evening. Many doctoral students work 20 hours each week in teaching assistant roles. This means that most students will be funded for up to four years beyond a master’s degree.
The Computer and Information Sciences (CIS) Department is located in the state-of-the-art SERC (Science Education and Research Center) building on Temple’s Main Campus. The CIS Department is one of the oldest Computer Science Departments in the country and is consistently expanding its academic and research offerings.
