Is there a PhD program in Computer Science? I only see a Masters program... just curious

Good question! We have PhD students but no official PhD programme yet since we need a ministerial accreditation to be able to graduate PhD students.

However, we received a visit by the ministerial accreditation committee on Monday, 3 December, and we fully expect to get the green light and to be in a position to start our PhD programme officially in January 2008.

New recruits with an interest in TCS will join our ICE-TCS research centre. We have 11 permanent members so far, a strong advisory board that keeps us on our toes, and we try to maintain a reasonable level of activity.
