34 PhD Programs in 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.

Program Overview

The doctor of philosophy in the field of engineering management is designed for the technical manager who seeks to pursue advanced education and research methods to keep an organization operating efficiently and working ahead of its competitors. The program provides graduate education in the most current management techniques for technological and scientific organizations. The program is divided into two stages. The first comprises a study of related fields of learning that supports the general area of research focus and culminates in the qualifying examination. The second, composed of original research and the presentation of findings in a written dissertation, culminates in the final examination. Upon admission to the first stage of the program, the student meets with their assigned advisor to structure the program of study. Programs of study include a focus area: crisis, emergency, and risk management; economics, finance, and cost engineering; engineering and technology management; environmental and energy management; and knowledge and information management....

Overview

Much of our technological systems now require complex control functions to operate. The Dynamic Systems and Control program draws from many disciplines to develop new approaches and effective solutions to the analysis of systems and the design of control functions for them. The program offers students tremendous flexibility in designing a graduate program that builds in-depth skills and breadth of knowledge that will relate to their area of interest.

Admission to the Emphasis

Students holding a B.S. degree or M.S. in engineering from an ABET accredited program or a B.S. or M.S. in a related field from an accredited institution are invited to apply for admission to masters or doctoral programs. Students not having an ABET accredited B.S engineering degree but having degrees in math or physical/biological science or other disciplines may be asked to take additional selected course work to adequately prepare them for their specific engineering studies....

By its nature, the DCI is multidisciplinary, covering four areas of knowledge (biotechnology, mechatronics, industrial engineering and environmental systems) that have been selected among the research lines with greater strength within the Division of Engineering and Architecture. These areas interact with each other through projects, centers and research chairs

The areas of knowledge serve as a crucible for the definition of the research lines of the DCI Program:

Mechatronics and Advanced Manufacturing Mechatronics and Advanced Manufacturing comprises the analysis and synthesis of complex systems in which multiple disciplines interact. The Mechatronics and Advanced Manufacturing line responds to the need to train human resources for research, with a high level of preparation in the disciplines of Automation, Mechanics and Electronics.Clean Energies and Sustainable Use of Water Clean Energy and Sustainable Use of Water responds to global needs by evolving operational approaches, from treatments for pollution control to the concept of corporate social responsibility. Indicates the relevance that in relation to the economic and social spheres has the use of natural resources with an ecosystemic approach, the care of the physical environment and the protection of the health of the population, all with a focus and vision of sustainability.Industrial engineer Industrial Engineering is related to the increase of competitiveness worldwide and represents one of the greatest challenges of any nation, particularly its institutions and companies who will have to face a continuous process of increased productivity, efficient use of resources and generation of courage to face the growing competition.

Program structure

In the first semester of the first year, the student takes three compulsory subjects and two elective pedagogical subjects, which represent the basis of the doctoral study in the field of engineering in education. In the second semester of the first year, the student upgrades knowledge with two elective subjects in the technical field and one elective course in the pedagogical didactic field. At the same time, he/she begins his/her individual research work on relevant issues in the field of education in engineering. In two semesters, the student completes 1800 hours of organized and individual forms of study and research work and collects 60 ECTS credits.

In the winter semester of the second year, students take optional elective courses from postgraduate study programs of domestic or foreign faculties or universities (one course in technical direction and one course in pedagogy). The student may also select the subjects from the elective subjects of the proposed study program if he/she did not select them previously. In the winter semester of the second year, the student also performs individual research work, which he/she continues in the second semester of the second year.

Overview

The doctorate program in engineering prepares the next generation of engineering leaders to tackle some of the most daunting and complex problems facing our society.

The engineering doctorate produces graduates who are subject matter experts in a knowledge domain within an engineering discipline. Instead of restricting graduates to individual engineering fields, the engineering Ph.D. provides students with the flexibility to become discipline-specific subject matter experts and engineering innovators in an open-architecture environment, fostering intellectual growth along both interdisciplinary pathways and within the bounds of conventional engineering disciplines. With this approach, the program develops world-class researchers who can capitalize on the most promising discoveries and innovations, regardless of their origin within the engineering field, to develop interdisciplinary solutions for real-world challenges....
