The PhD Programs will connect knowledge of three disciplines mathematics, statistics, and computer science to policy-relevant decision-making in business and government. The programs aim to train researchers to contribute to theory, develop inventive and useful models and methods, and conduct applied scientific investigations. Individual researchers will vary in their emphasis, but the field includes all these aspects. This program emphasizes on rigorous course work and high quality research that should be published in international conferences and HEC recognized journals. Course and research work are arranged as per HEC criteria.

Eligibility

M.Phil. /M.S. / in Computer Science related field or equivalent graduates from HEC recognized institutions meeting the following criteria:

  • A minimum CGPA of 3.00 on a scale of 4.00 (or overall 60% marks) or equivalent
  • A minimum of 18 years of schooling that corresponds to MS / M.Phil or equivalent degree from HEC recognized institutions in a relevant discipline.
  • GRE subject specific or GAT subject test conducted by the NTS, or equivalent in the relevant discipline. A minimum of 60% (percentage) marks is required
  • An interview conducted by the Institute
  • All other HEC stipulated requirements
