Pace University’s Seidenberg School launches new Ph.D. program in Computer Science

White Plains, NY – August 15, 2013 — Pace University’s Seidenberg School of Computer Science and Information Systems will offer a new Doctor of Philosophy in Computer Science degree program starting in the fall 2013 semester.

The Pace program is unique in that it is the first Ph.D. program in computer science in the Hudson Valley between New York City and Albany, and only accepts students with proven research experience. From the very start, students are closely integrated in strategically important applied research projects focusing on telehealth and biometrics, web computing and information assurance, artificial intelligence and robotics, and software engineering and formal methods.

“The United States urgently needs quality computing innovators to enhance its competiveness in the global market and create new job opportunities,” said Dr. Amar Gupta, dean of the Seidenberg School. “The goal of the new Ph.D. program is to build on Pace’s successful B.S. in Computer Science, M.S. in Computer Science, and D.P.S. in Computing programs and cultivate advanced computing research scholars and professionals who will be competent in both industry and academia.”

Computer science is a dynamic discipline that requires faculty to perform advanced research in order to remain current and produce quality computing researchers and professionals. The new program will enable the Seidenberg School to partner with other Pace colleges/schools and other universities to offer advanced interdisciplinary degrees in areas important to New York and the national economy.
