The University of North Texas is located in the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex and has approximately 36,000 students. The university supports nearly 80 Ph.D. programs. The Department resides in a spacious research park approximately five km from the main campus and sponsors more than 80 actively-engaged Ph.D. students. Coming from around the world, Ph.D. students must meet UNT’s strict standards for admission, complete a rigorous curriculum, pass a qualifying exam, complete a dissertation, and publish in competitive conferences and journals. Their choices of research areas include natural language processing, computer security, video analytics, bio-informatics, low-power VLSI, robotics, network/wireless systems, computer language semantics, game development, computer-assisted instruction (dialogue systems), theory of computation, and several others. The Department is home to an NSF-supported Industry/University Cooperative Research Center which combines networks, security, and software systems within the context of joint industry-government research.

Upon graduation, many Ph.D. recipients return to their country of origin to assume or resume academic positions. Others acquire faculty positions in the U.S. In recent years, graduates have sought and found positions at highly visible corporations such as Google and Microsoft.
