The mission of the Ph.D. Program is to educate scholars who will make substantial contributions in their field of research. Our primary goal is to train graduate students to make such contributions. To achieve this goal, we attempt to place students in productive academic research environments.
The major areas of study within the department are Information Systems/Information Technology (IS/IT) and Operations Management OM). Review the information packet to learn more.
The achievement of our primary goal of developing research-active doctoral students is best illustrated by the joint publications productivity of faculty and students. You may review the joint publications list, comprised of students who have graduated in the last ten years.
The members of the ISOM Faculty are well recognized for their expertise in Information Systems, Management Science/Operations Research, Statistics, and Operations Management. The ISOM Faculty Directory contains detailed information on individual faculty members, their courses and research interests.
A team consisting of one of our PhD students, Mahdi Moqri, and three other students affiliated with the UF CISE Data Science Research Center finished in second place in the 7-hour Hoggetowne Hack 2014, Gainesville (an Open Data movement hackathon). Their concept was "SafeCity," an Android app that promotes safety by helping identify crime-prone areas of the city. Their second place finish yielded a cash prize of $750. The challenge involved roughly 133 data sets available at Gainesville's Open Data Portal (a Government 2.0 initiative). There were 13 teams presenting their work with people from various local startups such as Grooveshark, roomsync, Gainesville HackerHouse, swampmobile, as well as many others.
