Computing Ph.D. Program

The Computing Ph.D. Program encompasses expertise and research opportunities across a spectrum of computing fields under a single, high-quality research doctorate. The interdisciplinary program brings together faculty members from the Departments of Biological Sciences, Chemistry and Biochemistry, Civil Engineering, Computer Science, Electrical and Computer Engineering, Geosciences, Materials Science and Engineering, Mathematics, Mechanical and Biomedical Engineering, and Physics. With this broad reach lies strength: faculty and students are able to leverage a diverse and unique set of approaches, skills and expertise that enable and complement their research effort.


The PhD Computing program is interdisciplinary and intended to encompass a spectrum of computing fields under a single high-quality research doctorate. Currently it has three emphases:

The Computational Science & Engineering emphasis focuses on construction of mathematical models and quantitative analysis techniques and use of computers to analyze and solve scientific and engineering problems.

The Computer Science emphasis focuses on theory, design, development, and application of computer and software systems, and the development of algorithms for data search, manipulation, and analysis.
