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.
