Requirements for the Ph.D. degree

To obtain a Ph.D. in the Computer Science Department, one has to complete courses worthy of 10 academic points, and write an extensive Ph.D. thesis on a specific research topic of interest. The Ph.D. thesis is similar to the M.Sc. thesis, only it is more extensive and rich.  A good Ph.D. thesis is expected to contain scientific contributions that are substantial enough to be published in about three research papers in respectable journals. For comparison, a good M.Sc. thesis is expected to lead to one such research paper.
