The Faculty of Computer Science at Dalhousie University is in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, a city with a long maritime tradition, and the regional economic, cultural and research hub of Atlantic Canada. Dalhousie University has world-class oceanography, biology, medicine and science research, and is a member of the U15 (the 15 leading research intensive universities in Canada).

The Faculty was established in 1997, and has developed research strengths in text mining, knowledge management, human-computer interaction, visualization and graphics, computer networks, network management and security, and algorithms. The Faculty has a collaborative culture internally and an interdisciplinary outlook.Admission to the PhD program requires a strong academic and research record, and aptitude for research. The PhD degree has light course requirements (two graduate courses in the intended area of research), and focuses early on in publishable research.

Building on a critical mass of faculty and funded research, the Faculty is in the process of establishing a research institute in Big Data Analytics, which will serve as the focal point for research and industrial collaboration. The Faculty is actively collaborating with other universities in Canada in the context of federally-funded Networks of Centres of Excellence and Strategic Networks. This gives PhD students the opportunity to interact with top research faculty in Canada, develop their personal networks and enrich their PhD studies experience.
