Engineering

Engineering refers to the discipline of applying mathematics, science, and economics to the design and structure of buildings, machines, systems, processes, and devices. Different fields of engineering include bioengineering, chemical, computer and information science, mechanical, and electrical, among others.
 
Whether in the area of chemical, civil, electrical or mechanical engineering, an Engineering PhD adds theoretical knowledge and practical skills to a candidate's resume. Engineering PhD candidates are specialists in problem solving, technology and computer use. Engineering PhD programs are challenging and require candidates to make a significant contribution to the field through research and practice. Candidates pursuing an Engineering PhD are usually required to complete a thesis or dissertation based on their research, often supervised by a member of faculty. Candidates seeking an Engineering PhD must be committed, competent, have the ability to conduct research, and have a current knowledge base in the field. Engineering PhD programs prepare candidates for work in academic and research institutions, government, or industry.
