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....

Overview

Infrastructure systems support the basic needs and functions of modern industrialized society including energy, water and sewage, transportation, communications, and public facilities. Resilience is the capacity of individuals, communities, and systems to anticipate, prepare for, and adapt to changing conditions, recover from threats, and thrive in the future. The Resilient Infrastructure Systems program focuses on innovative solutions that help communities, businesses, and governments mitigate risks – and seize opportunities – associated with environmental change, extreme weather and climate-related events by rethinking, transforming, and adapting infrastructure systems to strengthen economic, environmental, and social resilience. The program offers students the opportunity to conduct integrative research focused on built and natural infrastructure systems related to transportation, environment and water, energy, and food, and their interconnections. Students may tailor a plan of coursework to their interests by drawing from UGA’s extensive course offerings spanning several engineering disciplines, earth and atmospheric sciences, environmental design, ecology, public health, law and policy, and the social sciences....

Overview

Providing sustainable energy for a rapidly growing world population is a grand challenge of the 21st century. Power generation and environmental emissions are a technical, social and political issue that affects economies and the environment on local, national and global scales. The Energy Systems program examines diverse technical, socio-political, and ecological dimensions of power generation and consumption including:

energy generation, storage, and conversion technologies, impacts of energy and environmental policy on the power generation sector, quantitative, qualitative, and descriptive models of energy flows and storages that illuminate the role of energy in the functionality of the biosphere and modern society, ecological systems functionality and how this pertains to ecosystem health and ecological services provided to support humankind, and interconnections with food and water systems. ...
