Earning a Ph.D. requires extended study and intense mental effort. A PhD is an academic study on which you concentrate for four to six years after obtaining your master’s degree, and that leads, if successful, to a PhD degree, the highest academic degree.

Engineering and technology is a field that focuses on the practical application of engineering principles. Students in this field study the conceptual and design elements of engineering and how they are used in the development of technology.
