The IIE Master of Philosophy in Computer and Information Sciences is a 100 percent research program. A research candidate is required to undertake a program of supervised research within the faculty resulting in the completion of a major thesis.

Students acquire research skills appropriate to their discipline, gain increased understanding of the fundamentals of conceptual, methodological and implementation issues of IT-related research, and will conduct research in a selected area using the concepts and principles learned, which culminates in the completion of a master’s thesis.
