PhD in Computer Science and Engineering The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology
Make your input really count as a postgraduate student in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering. Traditional computer science research covers the hardware and software of computer systems and their applications. Computer science programs at HKUST emphasize an integrated approach to the study of computers and computing methods to collect, process, analyze, and transmit information to support relevant and useful applications in modern life.
Computer science is still a young field. The world is only just beginning to realize the potential of information technology. The Department and its programs prepare students to meet the exciting challenges that await and to generate new advances in computing that will fuel future progress.
The Ph.D. program aims to develop the skills needed to identify research issues related to a practical application, formulate an original research plan that addresses some of those issues, and independently create a computing-related solution.
