The School of Applied Statistics at National Institute of Development Administration (NIDA) offers Ph.D. degrees in Computer Science and Information Systems (CSIS). The objective of the program is to provide educational environment that encourages student to develop their ability to contribute to the advancement of the fields. Requirements for the program emphasize students’ ability to carry out independent research by synthesising non-trivial, original ideas; and communicating their research effectively through well-written dissertations and publications.


The program targets those students with research interests in topics generally associated with computer science and information systems. The area of concentration consists of artificail intelligence and machine learning, computer network and security,  multimedia and image processing, computer graphics and animation, database systems, information systems management, User Interface Design, information security management , knowledge management, software architecture, distributed and parallel computing, operating systems.


Students with superior qualifications who are interested in advancing their knowledge in computer science and information systems are invited to apply. The program combines course work with research work led by researchers in their areas of expertise.
