Engineering Studies

The PhD is a doctoral degree, specifically called a "doctor of philosophy" degree. This is misleading because PhD holders are not necessarily philosophers (unless they earned their degree in philosophy!). That said, PhD recipients are able to engage in thought experiments, reason about problems, and solve problems in sophisticated ways.

The field of engineering and technology is a combination of the theoretical emphasis of engineering and the practical emphasis of technology. Engineering and technology students learn how to apply the concepts and designs of engineering to everyday situations in a variety of technological environments.

Europe is the sixth largest continent and includes 47 countries and assorted dependencies, islands and territories. It is bordered by the Mediterranean Sea to the south, Asia to the east, and the Atlantic Ocean to the West.
