North Carolina A&T State University, a historically Black educational institution in Greensboro, has received approval to begin a new Ph.D. program in computer science. The first students are expected to enroll in the program during the spring 2014 semester.
“The new Ph.D. program will further strengthen the graduate programs at North Carolina A&T by attracting highly qualified students for advanced study and research in information security, distributed systems and artificial intelligence,” said Dr. Sanjiv Sarin, vice provost for research, graduate programs and extended learning, and dean of the graduate school.
Dr. Gerry Dozier, professor and chair of the computer science department at North Carolina A&T, added, “We are extremely excited about our Ph.D. program. Over the past six years our computer science faculty and staff have done an excellent job in preparing for this program.”
