Enroll in Dalhousie's PhD in Computer Science and conduct independent and original research in one of the Faculty of Computer Science's research concentrations alongside internationally respected faculty members. Advance the frontier of knowledge and publish high-quality, peer-reviewed conference papers and journals.

The PhD program is designed to focus you on research early, under the mentorship of a thesis supervisor, assisted by a supervisory committee. Students are expected to lead a well-defined component of a wider project and be the prime author in the resulting publications.

In addition to exploring theories, methodological concepts, and substantive knowledge related to computer science, our PhD in Computer Science will help you develop a deep expertise in areas like:

  • Visual Analytics
  • Text and Data Analytics
  • Networks and Security
  • Wireless networks and Security
  • Human-Computer Interaction and Ubiquitous Computing
  • Visualization, New Media and Image Processing
  • Mobile Graphics
  • Theory and Algorithms
  • Genetic Algorithms and Evolutionary Computing
  • Bioinformatics
  • Health Informatics
  • Autonomous Robotics

Your future:

By the time you've completed your degree, you will be ready for a career in industry, or within an academic setting. Some of our alumni have found jobs as:

  • Professors in computer science
  • Conducting advanced research in industrial or government research labs
  • Chief Technical Officers
  • CEO of their own start-up

Program details:

The PhD program requirements consist of a number of graduate courses, a Research Aptitude Defence, a Thesis Proposal, and the Thesis Defence. The general regulations of the Faculty of Graduate Studies are in effect for the PhD program. Here detailed information is provided about the PhD Program requirements in the Faculty of Computer Science.

A PhD in Computer Science will typically take 3 - 4 years to complete.

Degree requirement:

The PhD course requirement for a candidate entering the PhD program with a Master's degree in Computer Science is TWO graduate courses (CSCI 6XXX or above), plus any additional graduate or undergraduate courses mentioned in the letter of admission. Up to one CSCI 6902 doctoral directed studies course can be taken as one of the two required graduate courses. The PhD course requirement for a candidate entering the PhD program with a Bachelor of Computer Science degree is SIX graduate courses (CSCI 6XXX or above), plus any additional graduate or undergraduate courses mentioned in the letter of admission. Up to one CSCI 6901 directed studies course and one CSCI 6902 doctoral directed studies course can be taken as two of the six required courses. All PhD candidates should consult with and get the agreement of their supervisor on their graduate course selection.

In addition to the above graduate coursework requirement, a candidate is required to register in a Directed Doctoral Research Project, CSCI 7900.06 (worth one full course or 6 credit hours), leading to the research aptitude exam. Students should sign up for it in the two consecutive terms before their exam. The course reflects the effort that students put into their research leading to that exam.

Additional courses may be required either as specified upon admission or as a result of the student's performance in the research aptitude/thesis proposal examination to remedy deficiencies in the student's background.

On successful defense of the research aptitude exam candidates enroll in CSCI 9530 for the remainder of their program.
