Impact the future of computer science with a Ph.D. in computer science at Stevens.

Students in the computer science Ph.D. program at Stevens work with world-class faculty members on research that is changing the face of computer science. Among our faculty experts are multiple NSF CAREER Award winners, the inventor of a landmark algorithm for today’s computer graphics, a collaborator in three major software advances, and numerous experts in cybersecurity.

All Ph.D. candidates receive financial support and begin their research immediately—getting them involved early and vigorously in this critical field. Industry leaders such as Microsoft, IBM, Google, and Intel regularly collaborate with—and recruit from—the computer science department.

Our federally funded research programs are currently growing at a rapid pace, preparing Ph.D. students for research careers in academia and industry. Ph.D. graduates with a high level of expertise go on to become experts working as faculty, software engineers, or research scientists in academia, corporations, government laboratories and agencies, while others hold positions as data scientists at finance companies and hedge funds. Others go on to make an impact in machine learning, artificial intelligence and cyber security.
