The Department of Computer Science and Engineering at the NYU Polytechnic School of Engineering is inviting applications from highly qualified students for its PhD program in Computer Science. We especially encourage strong applications from students with interests in our main areas of research: computer security and privacy, data analysis and data engineering, visualization and graphics, algorithms and complexity, and games and HCI.
The School of Engineering, located in Downtown Brooklyn, was established on January 1st, 2014, as the result of the merger between New York University and Polytechnic University. Our department, formerly part of Polytechnic University, has had an active PhD program for many years, and this is the first year that our students will be admitted directly to the NYU School of Engineering. Admitted students are expected to work closely with their research advisors in our department, but will also have the opportunity to participate in the many scientific opportunities available within NYU and New York City, including the Game Innovation Lab and the Center for Urban Science and Progress (CUSP) located directly at our Brooklyn location.
Please see here for more information about our PhD Program and how to apply.
Applicants are strongly encouraged to apply by February 28, 2014, though later applications may still be considered.
Successful applicants to the program are expected to have a BS and/or MS in Computer Science or a closely related field (such as EE, Math, or Computer Engineering), and should have an outstanding academic record. In addition, previous research experience and other technical accomplishments, as evidenced by publications, software, or letters of reference, are also important for admission. Financial support, in the form of scholarships, research assistantships, and teaching assistantships, is usually available for admitted applicants. Admission is highly selective.
