College of Computer Sciences & Information Systems

Course Detail

PhD programs will connect knowledge of three disciplines mathematics, statistics, and computer science to policy-relevant decision-making in business and government. The program aims to train researchers to contribute to theory, develop inventive and useful models and methods, and conduct applied scientific investigations. Although individual researchers will vary in their emphases, the field includes all these aspects. This program emphasizes rigorous course work and high quality research that should be published in international conferences and HEC recognized journals. Course and research work are arranged as per HEC criteria.
