Hello Chapter Leaders.

Recently I've been thinking about pursuing my PhD (computer science) while
working.
I've asked various people from school and work and nobody has really given
me a solid answer. So my question is to you guys: Is it possible to pursue
PhD part time while working full time?
I'm a software engineer and I work between 45-50 hours a week, if I
consider pursuing my PhD how much effort would I need to put in?
Would applying to a UC require a full time schedule ? Which school would
guys recommend?
Sorry about all of these questions but I am really trying to find some
answers...
Why do I want to continue my PhD you ask? Because I want switch to academia
later on in my career.
Any thoughts?
