Dual Computer Science Ph

  1. 1. Dual Computer Science PhD Porto, 2007 May 17
  2. 2. CS at CMU <ul><li>www.cs.cmu.edu/education/graduate/doctoral/ </li></ul><ul><li>In particular: http:// www.csd.cs.cmu.edu/education/phd / </li></ul>
  3. 3. Goal of Program <ul><li>The goal of the program is to take people with raw talent and intellect, nurture them in our environment through a thorough immersion in research and coursework, and produce well-educated researchers and future leaders in Computer Science. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Relevant Information <ul><li>The CS PhD is heavily integrated with SCS research activities. </li></ul><ul><li>At any time there are about 140 students enrolled. </li></ul><ul><li>Records show that it takes about 6 years to complete the program and that over 70% of entering students receive a PhD </li></ul><ul><li>Students can enter with just a Bachelor's degree. </li></ul><ul><li>Students do not need to have an undergraduate degree in computer science, but most have one either in computer science or in a closely related technical field, such as electrical or computer engineering. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Areas of Research <ul><li>Algorithms and Complexity </li></ul><ul><li>AI: Planning, Knowledge Representation, and Game Theory </li></ul><ul><li>Computational Molecular Biology </li></ul><ul><li>Computational Neuroscience </li></ul><ul><li>Computer Architecture </li></ul><ul><li>Databases </li></ul><ul><li>Formal Methods </li></ul><ul><li>Graphics </li></ul><ul><li>Human-Computer Interaction </li></ul><ul><li>Large-Scale Distributed Systems </li></ul><ul><li>Machine Learning </li></ul><ul><li>Mobile and Pervasive Computing </li></ul><ul><li>Networking </li></ul><ul><li>Principles of Programming </li></ul><ul><li>Robotics </li></ul><ul><li>Security </li></ul><ul><li>Scientific Computing </li></ul><ul><li>Software Engineering </li></ul><ul><li>Technology and Society </li></ul><ul><li>Vision, Speech, and Natural Languages </li></ul>
  6. 6. Doctoral Programs in the School of Computer Science <ul><li>Computer Science </li></ul><ul><li>Computer Science/Neural Basis of Cognition </li></ul><ul><li>Robotics </li></ul><ul><li>Robotics/Neural Basis of Cognition </li></ul><ul><li>Language and Information Technologies </li></ul><ul><li>Human-Computer Interaction </li></ul><ul><li>Software Engineering </li></ul><ul><li>Computational and Statistical Learning </li></ul><ul><li>Computational and Statistical Learning/Neural Basis of Cognition </li></ul><ul><li>Computation, Organizations and Society </li></ul><ul><li>Computer Science (Pure and Applied Logic) </li></ul><ul><li>Computer Science (Algorithms, Combinatorics, and Optimization) </li></ul><ul><li>Interdisciplinary Ph.D. Program (self-defined) </li></ul>
  7. 7. Contacts at SCS <ul><li>Sharon Burks: questions about procedure and policy </li></ul><ul><li>Frank Pfenning: questions about the program's content and structure. </li></ul><ul><li>Martha Clarke: questions about How to Apply to the CS and SCS doctoral programs. </li></ul><ul><li>Students and their advisors; advisors and their students. </li></ul><ul><li>Doctoral Review Committee (DRC). </li></ul><ul><li>Student Ombudsperson. </li></ul>
  8. 8. To complete the PhD, CMU requires that each student <ul><li>Participate in directed research </li></ul><ul><li>Pass 96 university units worth of graduate courses , with certain distribution requirements </li></ul><ul><li>Serve as a teaching assistant at least twice </li></ul><ul><li>Demonstrate oral and written communication skills </li></ul><ul><li>Write and orally defend a thesis , a significant piece of original research in a specialized area of Computer Science </li></ul>
  9. 9. Plan of Work <ul><li>Toward the end of September of the 1st year, each student is matched with a suitable advisor (if research interests change, he or she is free to change advisors at any time). </li></ul><ul><li>During the first 2 years, the student begins to gain the foundation of knowledge that will allow him or her to go on and become an expert researcher in CS, primarily through the following ways: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>By mastering a body of graduate material, achieved by passing 8 full-time courses (96 university units). </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>By learning how to organize and begin to carry out original research, achieved by participating in directed research. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Twice the student serves as a teaching assistant. While teaching or taking courses, we expect students to spend at least half their time doing directed research. </li></ul>
