The PhD is a doctoral degree, specifically called a "doctor of philosophy" degree. This is misleading because PhD holders are not necessarily philosophers (unless they earned their degree in philosophy!). That said, PhD recipients are able to engage in thought experiments, reason about problems, and solve problems in sophisticated ways.
Those who are studying in the computing field may explore a variety of topics, including system development and design, hardware, software, information management, structuring and processing and the creation of different forms of media.
