A PhD in computer science is primarily composed of independent original research that makes a significant contribution to knowledge in a field of computer science. The program also includes three advanced courses that complement the research topic. A PhD degree can be completed within three years. PhD research is supervised by faculty members. A supervisor must be arranged before a student is accepted into the program. An advisory committee monitors the progress of the student throughout the program.


These courses are intended as guidelines. Speak to your guidance counsellor to see what courses are offered at your school.
    A research-based Master's degree in Computer Science or related area with first class standing from a recognized University is required. Students must have a supervisor at UNB before being accepted into the PhD program. In exceptional circumstances students enrolled in a Master's program in Computer Science may transfer into the PhD program. Students with a course-based Master's degree will need to demonstrate their research potential before being accepted into the PhD program.
