Fully Funded PhD in Computer and Information Science

University of Michigan-Dearborn’s College of Engineering and Computer Science (CECS) is a leader in providing quality graduate programs in an environment integrated with research, engineering practice and continuing professional education.

The Ph.D. program addresses the growing need for meaningful research in computer and information science as well as computational professionals with advanced knowledge and technical skills. This Ph.D. program of the Rackham Graduate School of the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor is located, administered, and offered by UM-Dearborn.

The program observes the standards for admissions, registration, degree requirements, awarding of degrees, and other administrative policies and regulations established by the Executive Board of the Rackham Graduate School.

PhD in Computer and Information Science Program Requirements

Admission to the Ph.D. degree is offered to exceptional students who have completed, with distinction, a Bachelor’s or a master’s degree in computer and information science or a closely related field. Working engineers can be accepted with a master’s degree.

A bachelor’s or master’s degree in engineering, applied mathematics, computer science, or physical science, from an accredited program. A minimum cumulative GPA of 3.2 or higher on a 4-point scale for the B.S. degree and 3.5 or higher on a 4-point scale for the master’s degree.

There are three types of students who will be admitted to the Ph.D. CIS program:

1. Students with just a B.S. in computer and information science or closely related area

  • Complete at least 36 credit hours of coursework, including 30 credit hours toward the completion of the MS degree, and at least 24 dissertation credits, and can earn an M.S. CIS, M.S. DS, M.S. SWE, M.S. CIA or M.S. AI along the way to their Ph.D. CIS.

2. Students with a relevant Rackham or a UM-Dearborn master’s degree

  • Complete at least 6 credits of coursework and at least 24 dissertation credits.

3. Students with a relevant non-Rackham and non-UM-Dearborn master’s degree

  • Complete at least 18 credits of coursework and at least 24 credits of thesis research.

Students with insufficient background in computer and information science who are accepted into the program will be assigned remedial courses to complete.

PhD Funding Coverage

Our Ph.D. program adheres to the CECS full-funding model for Ph.D. students. All Ph.D. students receive full-funding in the form of an appointment as a Graduate Student Instructor (GSI), Research Assistant (GSRA), or a combination of both which covers: a monthly stipend, health insurance, and tuition waiver.

Students admitted to the program are fully funded for up to five years. Funding is guaranteed based on continued good academic standing and adequate progress towards the Ph.D. degree.
