CUNY GC Ph.D. Program in Computer Science prepares selected students for leadership positions
in research and development careers in CS and IT industry, as well as for research and teaching positions in academia institutions. Our Ph.D. candidates master the CS discipline in its broadest sense, in the same time obtain in depth knowledge
of a specialized area and perform independent innovative research in cutting edge fields.
We have over 100 participating faculty members, most of whom are globally recognized scholars.

Doctoral students in Computer Science join the program with a record of exceptional work in Computer Science, Mathematics, or related sciences. Throughout their tenure at the Graduate Center, students will conduct their own original research that is publishable in archival peer reviewed journals and conferences, teach at one of the CUNY colleges, and complete their dissertation. Hear from some of our alums
New York City is one of the nation's leading high-tech hubs, offering a wide range of research, business, and teaching opportunities. Since the Computer Science program works as a consortium, with most seminars, lectures, and colloquia held at the Graduate Center in midtown Manhattan and many lab-oriented courses held at CUNY's senior colleges spread out amongst the five boroughs, students become familiar with the city and all it has to offer.
