The videos from our April 13th information session focused on research in computer science is up on YouTube.
The videos from our April 13th all-grad student information session focused on Ph.D. student life in computer science is up on YouTube.
We have two live information sessions coming up in April. They will be held on Zoom. Each will have two parallel “tracks” focused on different aspects getting a Ph.D. The tracks will run in parallel.
Mor Harchol-Balter’s essay “Applying to Ph.D. Programs in Computer Science” is one of the most often-cited documents about applying getting into a CS Ph.D. programs. It’s a classic of the genre and full of good advice. It’s definitely worth a read.
There are many different rankings available for Ph.D. programs in CS. In making your decision about where to apply and attend for your Ph.D., use one that is based on meaningful, objective metrics of program quality.
In most cases, you don’t have to pay to get a Ph.D. in CS. Instead, the university will pay you to get a Ph.D.! This might seem to good to be true, but it is true, and it is how the vast majority of CS/CE students pay for their Ph.D.
NO! You do not need to get a masters degree before enrolling in a Ph.D. program, and the majority of new Ph.D. students do not have one. In fact, if you know you want a Ph.D., it is a bad idea to enroll in a masters program first. Let’s consider the pros and cons.
Every year, the Computing Research Association (something like a trade group for computer science research) publishes the Taulbee Survey which collects a bunch of information about computer science programs in the US and Canada. It’s a valuable tool for comparing schools.
Hi! Our website for Computer Science Ph.D. information started construction!
We held our second CS Ph.D. information session yesterday for ~350 registered attendees. Below, you can find links to questions we answered on YouTube and written answers to the questions we didn’t get to.
We held our first CS Ph.D. information session last Wednesday for 285 registered attendees. Below, you can find links to questions we answered on YouTube and written answers to the questions we didn’t get to.
