MS / PhD Studies in Information Systems at UC Irvine [USA]

The faculty of the Information Systems Group (ISG) at UC Irvine is looking for a handful of excellent prospective students who are seeking an exciting, active place to study and do research on databases and information systems starting in the Fall of 2009. Several large projects are underway and several new ones are just beginning and will provide excellent opportunities for incoming students to “get in on the ground floor” of interesting new research initiatives.

ISG is a part of the CS Department within the Bren School of Information and Computer Sciences at UC Irvine, an environment that offers a number of unique advantages and opportunities. Being one of just a handful of such schools across the country, ICS offers a broad, stimulating intellectual environment for graduate studies. ICS is comprised of three departments -Computer Science, Informatics, and Statistics- covering all traditional computer science areas as well as related areas such as software engineering, human-computer interaction and usability, collaboration technologies, and statistical machine learning and data mining and analysis.

UC Irvine itself, in the words of our current chancellor, “combines the strengths of a major research university with the bounty of an incomparable Southern California location.” Thus, in addition to a stimulating research and educational environment, graduate study in ISG at UC Irvine offers attractive off-hours opportunities. Our location in Orange County offers easy access to a wide variety of outdoor and indoor entertainment and sporting activities.

More information about graduate study in CS at UC Irvine can be found on the UCI CS graduate studies page.

The application period is open now and applications will be accepted through January 15, 2009. More specifics about ISG, its faculty, and its projects can be found on our new ISG web site.

Closing date: January 15, 2009
