Transcript

  • 1. Dual Computer Science PhD Porto, 2007 May 17
  • 2. CS at CMU
    • www.cs.cmu.edu/education/graduate/doctoral/
    • In particular: http:// www.csd.cs.cmu.edu/education/phd /
  • 3. Goal of Program
    • 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.
  • 4. Relevant Information
    • The CS PhD is heavily integrated with SCS research activities.
    • At any time there are about 140 students enrolled.
    • Records show that it takes about 6 years to complete the program and that over 70% of entering students receive a PhD
    • Students can enter with just a Bachelor's degree.
    • 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.
  • 5. Areas of Research
    • Algorithms and Complexity
    • AI: Planning, Knowledge Representation, and Game Theory
    • Computational Molecular Biology
    • Computational Neuroscience
    • Computer Architecture
    • Databases
    • Formal Methods
    • Graphics
    • Human-Computer Interaction
    • Large-Scale Distributed Systems
    • Machine Learning
    • Mobile and Pervasive Computing
    • Networking
    • Principles of Programming
    • Robotics
    • Security
    • Scientific Computing
    • Software Engineering
    • Technology and Society
    • Vision, Speech, and Natural Languages
  • 6. Doctoral Programs in the School of Computer Science
    • Computer Science
    • Computer Science/Neural Basis of Cognition
    • Robotics
    • Robotics/Neural Basis of Cognition
    • Language and Information Technologies
    • Human-Computer Interaction
    • Software Engineering
    • Computational and Statistical Learning
    • Computational and Statistical Learning/Neural Basis of Cognition
    • Computation, Organizations and Society
    • Computer Science (Pure and Applied Logic)
    • Computer Science (Algorithms, Combinatorics, and Optimization)
    • Interdisciplinary Ph.D. Program (self-defined)
  • 7. Contacts at SCS
    • Sharon Burks: questions about procedure and policy
    • Frank Pfenning: questions about the program's content and structure.
    • Martha Clarke: questions about How to Apply to the CS and SCS doctoral programs.
    • Students and their advisors; advisors and their students.
    • Doctoral Review Committee (DRC).
    • Student Ombudsperson.
  • 8. To complete the PhD, CMU requires that each student
    • Participate in directed research
    • Pass 96 university units worth of graduate courses , with certain distribution requirements
    • Serve as a teaching assistant at least twice
    • Demonstrate oral and written communication skills
    • Write and orally defend a thesis , a significant piece of original research in a specialized area of Computer Science
  • 9. Plan of Work
    • 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).
    • 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:
      • By mastering a body of graduate material, achieved by passing 8 full-time courses (96 university units).
      • By learning how to organize and begin to carry out original research, achieved by participating in directed research.
    • 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.
  • 10. CS at Portugal
    • Paulo Veríssimo - FCUL
    • José Cardoso e Cunha ou Luís Caires - FCTUNL
    • João Gabriel Silva ou Henrique Madeira - FCTUC
    • Ricardo Machado – Univ. Minho, Univ. Aveiro, Univ. Porto
