The program is designed to prepare students for highly rewarding careers in academia and research labs. The demand for quality PhDs is increasing at a rapid rate in the country, thereby creating an ever-widening gap between the demand and supply.

Depending upon the academic preparation, admitted students are exposed to a wide range of core and elective courses with in-depth syllabi, followed by a qualifying exam to test their knowledge. In addition to this, students write a research proposal and starts pursuing research that eventually culminates in a Ph.D. thesis. Such an excellent combination of academic excellence in subject matters and top-notch research equips SNU PhDs in CSE with strong knowledge and research skills necessary for pursuing highly productive careers in academia as well as in research labs.
