Hood was one of four children, including a sister and two brothers, including a brother with Down syndrome. One of his grandfathers was a rancher and ran a summer geology camp for university students, which Hood attended as a high school student.
These courses will not count towards the 64 semester hours requirement for entrants with a master's degree.
Basic Competency Advanced database management IDS Distributed processing and telecommunication systems IDS Enterprise application infrastructure IDS Each course may be waived based on equivalent prior coursework or appropriate work experience in the technical area. Minimum of six courses 24 credit hours including two IDS research seminars IDSthree specialized courses in areas of individual interest, IS research topics IDSand an additional courses in consultation with the director of the PhD program.
Additional doctoral-level course work, including dissertation: PhD Thesis Research or additional doctoral-level course work chosen with the consent of the PhD coordinator and in consultation with the dissertation adviser.
A maximum of 32 semester hours of thesis research can count toward the degree.
Annual Evaluation The student will write a research paper each year beginning the first summer in the program and continuing until the preliminary evaluation.
An assessment of the summer paper will be conducted at the beginning of the fall semester each year that the student is in the program, except the first year.
The evaluation will be conducted by a three-member faculty committee, which will include the PhD director as the chairperson, the student's mentor and an MIS faculty member who has taught the student during that year.
Preliminary Examination The preliminary examination is normally taken upon successful completion of the required course work.
In exceptional cases, the examination may be taken earlier upon recommendation of the MIS director of doctoral studies and the student's PhD adviser.
The Graduate College requires that "the preliminary examination may not be given before one calendar year of residence nor later than one calendar year before defense of the dissertation. The examination may cover any issues relevant to the topic addressed in the proposal and PhD common core and basic knowledge in the field of specialization related to the proposal.
For a full list of degree requirements, click here for the UIC Catalog. Dissertation A dissertation, which makes an original contribution to knowledge in MIS, is required and must be defended. Dissertations may address theoretical or applied problems. In most cases, a minimum of 24 semester hours will be required to prepare a dissertation acceptable to the committee.
Up to 32 semester hours of credit can be awarded for successful completion of a dissertation.Are you interested in developing your own research project? Discover the PhD projects we currently have available for Embedded Systems.
This specialization teaches how to specify and design digital systems using integrating processors.
An important aspect is how to distribute the design on hardware, software and operating systems, and to master high-level computer languages for development and programming of digital systems. The PhD is a campus based program only. Directed by Harold Lehmann, MD, PhD and Co-Directed by Hadi Kharrazi, MD, PhD, the program offers the opportunity to participate in ground breaking research projects in clinical informatics at one of the world’s finest medical schools.

Faculty Description. The Faculty of Engineering offers doctoral and master’s degrees in Electronic Systems Engineering, Engineering, Environmental Systems Engineering, Industrial Systems Engineering, and Petroleum Systems Engineering.
Just what is visual programming? It's interesting that not many leading programming sources have tried to answer that question. In fact, a colleague of mine complained that when she actually asked Google, "what is visual programming," she didn't get a straight answer.
