The primary goal of the Doctor of Computer Science (D.Sc) is to grow research computer scientist with the ability to generate new knowledge. The program of Computer Science (D.Sc) is designed to advance the professional development of experienced computer scientist and professionals in the computer arena by extending their computer knowledge and equipping them with broad research and process computer skills, enabling them to make a key leadership contribution to their chosen fields. The program has been created to train students for careers in research such as government research, universities research, and industrial research laboratories.
AIU’s Doctorate degree in Computer Science goes one step further by allowing students to study and research multiple key areas of computer science to develop a unique foundation of practical knowledge and computer science theory.
Your AIU Distance Learning Doctorate program in Computer Science will be a custom-made program, designed just for you by you and your advisor. This flexibility to meet your needs is seldom found in other distance learning programs. Our program does not require every student to study the same subjects and use the same books and other learning materials as every other student. Instead, our online Doctoral programs are designed just for you. They are individually designed to meet your needs and help you to reach your professional and personal goals.
