You fulfill the minor requirement by taking 4-5 CS courses in a focus area. Your degree and transcript will come with a citation noting that you completed this additional academic program. I know a bunch of people doing this, especially in Machine Learning / Big Data in order to improve job prospects (generally outside of academia).

I thought by default a PhD in the US includes an MS (in physics) in the first year or two that only has coursework requirements? Is that not true?
