Doctoral Studies in Computer Science or Electrical Engineering
The Department of Computer Science Electrical Engineering also participates in the Interdisciplinary Ph.D. program of the University of Missouri-Kansas City. This program is administered through the School of Graduate Studies at the University of Missouri-Kansas City and requires a student to select both a coordinating discipline and a co-discipline. Many doctoral students choose both coordinating and co-disciplines in our department or the School of Computing and Engineering, but other disciplines can be taken as well. Three such disciplines are housed in our department: These were formerly known as computer networking, software architecture and telecommunications networking. See the School of Graduate Studies section of this catalog for details about the Interdisciplinary Ph.D. program.
