HOW TO CHOOSE A RESEARCH TOPIC FOR PHD IN COMPUTER SCIENCE ARTICLE http://phdizone.com

Slide3:

The following guidelines for choosing PhD topics in computer science are, 1) Self-examine what is your end goal e.g. completing your PhD, publish some articles in well-known journals as a result of your research, contributing research patents for your company, promotion etc. 2) Perform more literature review by going through as many academic articles from Computer & Applied Science Complete, Association of Computing Machinery (ACM), IEEE etc.

Slide4:

3) Identify the research gap (e.g. conflicting views, ineffective solutions, problem no one exploring) in Social networking, Mobility, Analytics, Cloud (SMAC), Software Defined Infrastructure, Internet of Things (IOT) as well as security issues among those topics etc. 4) Self examine your knowledge, experience, strengths, weaknesses, passion, perseverance then choose the topic best match your capability 5) Chart out your strategy how to complete the research e.g. time, effort, financial resources, family sacrifices etc

Slide5:

The general tips for choosing PhD students to choose the topic: Discovering Your Interests While the thesis or dissertation is the hardest and most important element of earning a doctoral degree, many students begin postgraduate study without a clear idea of exactly what they're interested in studying. The nice thing is that, at the graduate level, there are very few required classes; while you generally have to take classes from a number of different areas, you can pretty much take whatever classes you like within each area. This breadth requirement is designed to introduce you to a number of different topics so that you can find the area in which you'd like to work. If the student already have a good idea of what you plan to work on, this is still a good opportunity to expand your horizons and find other areas that might interest you. Graduate courses tend to be more interesting than undergraduate courses and move faster; take advantage of this!

Slide6:

Avoid Boring Topics One reason that choosing a thesis topic is difficult is that a good topic must fulfill three criteria: it must interest you (and hopefully your advisor!), it must be significant, and it must be achievable within a reasonable amount of time. Let's examine each of those in turn. Face it: before you get a PhD, you'll be spending a LOT of time working on your research. If the topic doesn't interest you, you'll have a hard time forcing yourself to get much work done. If the topic doesn't interest your advisor, he's unlikely to offer as much helpful advice as if you chose something in his area of interest. While you can certainly do your thesis on a topic that neither of you is interested, why make things harder on yourself? You took classes to find the areas that interest you...now choose a problem that interests you!

Slide7:

Don't Be Narrow-Minded...But Don't Be Too Broad, Either ! The PhD students should need to do a bit of research before choosing a topic, for several reasons: even if you already have an idea of what they would like to do, what they need to know what's already been done in that area and what they need to know that other people are interested. If nobody's interested in the problem, the PhD student likely have difficulty convincing their committee that the problem is significant, and if someone's already solved exactly they are chosen problem, the student find difficulty to earn a degree for repeating the first person's work!
