New Zealand Universities that offer various doctoral courses in Computer Science

There are four New Zealand Universities that offer various doctoral courses in Computer Science. Let us now briefly look into each of the four New Zealand Universities. Auckland University of Technology’ is a New Zealand University that offers seven full time doctoral courses in Computer Science. The courses in Computer Science that are offered by this New Zealand University are Doctor of Philosophy in Knowledge Engineering, Doctor of Philosophy in Artificial Intelligence, Doctor of Philosophy in Information Systems, Doctor of Philosophy in Novel Computational Paradigms, Doctor of Philosophy in Software Engineering, Doctor of Philosophy in Novel Theories and Applications and Doctor of Philosophy in System Usability. Each of these doctoral courses in Computer Science is a three year long course that costs 24,885 New Zealand Dollars annually.

‘University of Auckland’ offers four doctoral courses in Computer Science awarding Doctor of Philosophy in Software Engineering, Doctor of Philosophy in Information Systems, Doctor of Philosophy in Bioinformatics and Doctor of Philosophy in Computer Science. The fee for either of these doctoral courses in Computer Science would be 5,100 New Zealand Dollars. ‘University of Canterbury’ offers a full time doctoral course in Computer Science. This course offered is a two year long course awarding ‘Doctor of Philosophy in Computer Science’. The course contents include Simulation and Modeling Analysis, Machine learning, Mobile and Web Server Security, Wireless, Text Compression, Advanced Topics in Algorithms, Advanced Topics in HCI, Information and Software visualization, Intelligent Tutoring Systems, Security or Forensics Project etc… These topics are the hot topics of the day in the field of Computer Science Research. A student must have a first or second class pass in a Bachelor’s or Master’s Degree to get into this New Zealand University.

A ‘Doctor of Philosophy in Information Science’ is also offered by ‘University of Otago’ under its Department of Information Science at Dundelin Campus. This is a New Zealand University that offers this full time doctoral course in Computer Science over an academic period of two and a half years. A minimum of an upper second class in a Bachelor’s or a Master’s is very much required to get into this New Zealand University.
