The Ph.D. in Computer Science at The University of New Mexico is a research-intensive program, which trains students for research careers in computer science and fields of study that rely on computing, for teaching at the university level, for consulting, for industrial employment entailing advance design and analysis skills, and for the pursuit of innovative entrepreneurial opportunities.


The Computer Science program at The University of New Mexico features quick-start introductory classes for students arriving from other disciplines, a small set of required courses covering core areas of computer science, and an intensive structured research experience with our internationally recognized faculty.

The five outcomes for the Ph.D. program are:

  • Knowledge of Computer Science fundamentals appropriate for discipline and specialization.
  • Depth of knowledge in specialization.
  • Ability to conduct original and independent research.
  • Ability to perform critical review of literature in Computer Science and area of specialization.
  • Ability to communicate effectively.

Programme Structure

  • The core curriculum consists of three areas, theoretical foundations, computer systems, and empirical methods. Courses in the core curriculum are expected to be introductory in nature, teachable by multiple faculty with regular rotations, and when possible not cross-listed with undergraduate equivalents.
  • The Empirical Methods core is currently short one or two courses. Until that is remedied students will have no flexibility in the empirical core, but it is anticipated that at least one additional course will be added.
