Doctor of Information Systems (D.Sc)

School of Science and Engineering
Atlantic International University

The Doctor of Information Systems (D.Sc) objective is to prepare students for research or teaching positions in the academic community so that they can conduct or contribute to research in their chosen areas of study. The Information Systems program is designed to advance the professional development of experienced information systems graduates and professionals in the information systems arena by extending their knowledge and equipping them with broad research and process information systems skills, enabling them to make a key leadership contribution to their chosen fields.

AIU’s Doctorate degree in Information Systems goes one step further by allowing students to study and research multiple key areas of computer science to develop a unique foundation of practical knowledge and computer science theory.

Your AIU Distance Learning Doctorate program in Information Systems will be a custom-made program, designed just for you by you and your advisor. This flexibility to meet your needs is seldom found in other distance learning programs. Our program does not require every student to study the same subjects and use the same books and other learning materials as every other student. Instead our online Doctoral programs are designed just for you. They are individually designed to meet your needs and help you to reach your professional and personal goals.
