A  PhD in Computer Science enables students to become experts in a technical sub-field of computer science and advance the state of the art by contributing original research in that discipline. Most PhD students also gain practical experience in the classroom, as well as become visible members of the research community by publishing research and through oral presentations at conferences and research seminars. Upon completing the PhD program, students are able to set their own research direction, teach and advise students, and work at the forefront of cutting-edge research in academia or at an industrial laboratory.

Masters’s degree in Computer Science or related field from The University of Zambia or any other recognized University.
