Doctor of Philosophy Program in Information Technology (Ph.D. in IT) at Faculty of Information Technology, KMUTNB, is a three-year program designed for students who would like to gain advanced knowledge in Information Technology related fields. The program needs 48 credits: 12 credits for regular coursework and 36 credits for dissertation. The students enroll 12 credits for coursework (4 classes) in the first and second semesters and must receive at least 3.0 GPA. Then qualifying examination can be taken in the third semester, must be within two years of the program. The students who passed qualified exam then can propose a dissertation topic. Then at least at least 182 days or before final defense at least 30 days, students can take progressive examination. The final defense can be conducted after approval of dissertation topic at least 365 days. The programs required students to publish their research work in an international journal indexed by ISI Thomson Reuters or at least Scopus to complete the degree.  Students must also submit papers and participate in international conferences indexed in Scopus database.


Some highlight of coursework are the subjects as follows:
