Doctor of Philosophy (Information Technology)

Image result for information technology

The Ph.D. programme offered by the Department of Information Technology is a research degree program. The program is designed for students with a bachelor’s and master’s degree from a variety of disciplines recognized by the University Senate. The doctoral program is intended for serious students who desire to make significant scientific research contributions to the field of Information Technology. While course work is required, it is important to understand that satisfactorily completing course work is not the goal of a doctoral program. A doctoral candidate is required to produce a publishable doctoral dissertation based upon the candidate’s original research. The dissertation must necessarily advance the body of scientific knowledge that underlies the discipline of Information Technology.

A critical component of a doctoral candidate’s development is the dissemination of scientific information. Doctoral candidates are routinely expected to author by themselves or co-author with their professors and fellow students scholarly papers for submission to scientific journals and conference proceedings. Doctoral candidates should also be prepared to present these research results at various national and international conferences.
