Engineering

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.

You can only be in a position to solve advanced engineering problems if you have PhD training in engineering. To be admitted as a doctoral student, one must hold a masters degree in the Engineering or related subject and pass a comprehensive entrance exam.

Canada is a North American country consisting of ten provinces and three territories. Located in the northern part of the continent, it extends from the Atlantic to the Pacific and northward into the Arctic Ocean.
