The ICS doctoral programs have experienced tremendous growth in recent years, buoyed by faculty growth in all ICS departments (Computer Science, Informatics, and Statistics).  The School currently enrolls a vibrant and diverse community of more than 400 doctoral students who work side-by-side with world-class faculty and post-doctoral researchers to shape the future through advances across a remarkable range of research areas, from artificial intelligence, data science, and software systems to accessibility, digital media, and health informatics.

Graduates of the ICS doctoral programs move on to research and teaching careers in academia, advanced research and development positions in industry, non-profits, and the government, or leading roles in technology startups. Their work has profound impact on academia, industry, and society, enhancing how we live, interact, and play through information and computation.
