The Ph.D. 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 candidates are exposed to a wide range of core and elective courses with in-depth syllabi. In addition to this, students write a research proposal and start 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.
