Engineering Ph.D. Program 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 program's goal is to produce engineering graduates who are subject matter experts in a knowledge domain within an engineering discipline and who can compete successfully with those who have earned discipline-specific doctorates in engineering. Instead of restricting graduates to individual engineering fields (e.g., chemical, computer, electrical, industrial, mechanical, etc.) the program provides students with the flexibility to become 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. ...
