WPI’s cybersecurity research groups offer lively and supportive environments for doctoral studies and research. Research seminars are open to all who are interested; times are announced at the start of each academic year (September).
PhD students wishing to focus on cybersecurity must first be admitted to either the Department of Computer Science or the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. Students receive a PhD in one of these two departments; WPI does not offer separate degrees in cybersecurity.
The MS specialization in cybersecurity is not required to pursue PhD studies in this area. All of the courses listed in the specialization requirements are open to PhD students.
