PhD by research via Distance Learning is awarded after successfully completing a theoretical research specialization. This research is presented in the form of a doctoral thesis. The PhD (Doctor of Philosophy) is the only doctoral degree that can be achieved through distance learning. The main requirement for a PhD online through distance learning is to present and discuss a thesis of at least 100 pages for review and evaluation by an academic committee at Selinus University.
Nowadays, software development often involves working on large programs as part of a team that will most likely collaborate and interact with others in ancillary disciplines and/or teams for many years. Developing and implementing the principles and practice of software engineering means understanding its context, tools and techniques. The thesis of this research program should not only provide a superficial overview of this discipline, but develop the opportunity to weigh practical decisions. Research should cover the latest developments and discoveries.
