The Doctor of Philosophy in Computer Science provides students with the opportunity to conduct extensive and sustained original research at the highest level in the field of computer science. This discipline is the hardware and software that detects or causes a change, through the direct monitoring and control of industrial equipment, assets, processes, and events. CS is also the technology that interfaces with the physical world, including Industrial Control Systems (ICS), Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) Distributed Control Systems (DCS), and the Internet of Things (IoT). The PhD in Computer Science is a unique doctoral program designed to meet the demands of the highest skilled professionals to become the leaders who will be involved in the advancement, expansion, and support of the Computer Science industry. Computer Science has existed since the discovered ability to use and store business data with machines and electricity has powered machinery and equipment in factories, buildings, transportation, systems, the utility industry, and more. However, the accelerating convergence of CS with Information Technology (IT) has made CS one of the most rapidly growing fields, permeating all sectors of our lives, work, and national security. As a result, the field requires innovative researchers and practitioners who desire to elevate their skills to the highest level and contribute to the body of knowledge in Computer Science.
