‘Evolution as a top research university:’ UNF unveils its first Ph.D. program in computing

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — The University of North Florida is offering its first Ph.D. program among doctoral offerings.


The new Ph.D. in Computing is now accepting applications for Fall 2024.

It’s taken the university several years to get the program established.

“As UNF’s first Ph.D. program, this serves as an important step in UNF’s evolution as a top research university, Dr. William Klostermeyer, dean of UNF’s College of Computing, Engineering and Construction said. “It will help us recruit new faculty and students as well as enable new partnerships with local industry, other universities and funding agencies.

The Ph.D in Computing program will focus on intelligent systems and cybersecurity. This will include AI, data mining, computer security, and algorithms.
