Augusta University’s PhD in computer and cyber sciences, a new program offered by the rapidly growing School of Computer and Cyber Sciences, is accepting applications for fall 2022.

The school has added more than 20 faculty in the last three years and is currently recruiting for another 10 faculty openings.

The school also has research momentum with more than $6 million of new National Science Foundation funding obtained in the last 15 months, together with other funding from the Department of Defense and the National Security Administration.

The program offers an opportunity for new doctoral students desiring close interactions with research-oriented faculty in a city with low cost of living and a warm climate.

The primary research areas for the PhD program are parallel and distributed computing; security and privacy; programming languages, software engineering, and formal methods; internet of things (IoT) and edge computing and cyber-physical systems; and information systems.
