Georgia State University's computer science Ph.D. program ranks high in several categories at the PhDs.org website. This site generates customized rankings for U.S. Ph.D. programs based on priorities chosen by the visitor. The following table shows the ranking of GSU’s Ph.D. program using six categories suggested by PhDs.org.
In five of these categories, GSU’s Ph.D. program is the highest-ranked in the state of Georgia.
Much of the data used to create the rankings comes from an assessment of doctoral programs published by the National Research Council in 2010. Other sources include the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (an annual set of surveys of all U.S. colleges and universities), the Survey of Earned Doctorates (an annual survey of all new recipients of doctorates from U.S. universities at graduation), and the Survey of Graduate Students and Postdoctorates in Science and Engineering (an annual assessment of graduate students and postdoctoral researchers in science, engineering, and health-related fields).
PhDs.org provides graduate school rankings, Ph.D. job listings, and career resources. The site was originally created by faculty and students at Dartmouth College with support from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.
