Our research results are published regularly in top conferences (e.g., MobiSys, SenSys, MobiCom, RTSS) and premier journals (i.e., various IEEE/ACM Transactions). We have received multiple Best Paper Awards and Best Mobile App awards from premier conferences. Preference will be given to candidates who major in Computer Science or Electrical Engineering and have strong hands-on experiences in computer systems, smartphones, embedded systems, signal processing, and circuit design. Exceptional undergraduate students with strong research experience are especially welcome to apply. Prospective Ph.D. students are strongly advised to read our papers listed at http://www.cse.msu.edu/~glxing/ before submitting an application.
To apply, please submit a Ph.D application to MSU as soon as possible (deadline is approaching!). Please also email your application to Prof. Xing (glxing at cse dot msu dot edu). To facilitate the application process, please indicate in the email (1) a short summary and any critiques of our current papers you have read, and (2) what you are most interested in doing for your Ph.D research.
Why CSE@MSU? The Computer Science Doctoral Program at Michigan State University placed in the top 17% of the United States according to the recently released National Research Council's (NRC) ranking. The NRC's "Data-Based Assessment of Research-Doctorate Programs" provides two ranking metrics, which are ranges for which the ranking is 90% confident. Of the 126 programs assessed, one ranking (R-ranking) places the MSU's Computer Science Doctoral Program within the top 10%-25% in the U.S., and the other ranking (S-ranking) places MSU in the top 8%-35% in the U.S. When program scores are sorted according to the rankings, MSU's computer science doctoral program falls within the top 17% of all the programs in the U.S. Further information about the NRC rankings may be found at http://sites.nationalacademies.org/PGA/Resdoc/index.htm.
