Technology

Technology is a diverse and ever-growing area of study, which ranges from the sciences on one hand to the arts and humanities on the other. For graduates from Masters programs, preferably with some experience in their field, PhD programs in Technology are venues for candidates to perform guided research and make valuable contributions to their field. A PhD in Technology should take anywhere from 18 months to five years to complete. During that time, it may be possible for PhD Technology candidates to work for their university as teachers, researchers, technicians or assistants to help finance their study.

PhD candidates in the field of Technology come from numerous, diverse academic disciplines: from anthropology to computer science, from geography to engineering and from public policy to philosophy. Dual degree PhD programs are available at some universities to students who seek to systematically cultivate a more intercultural experience during the course of their PhD research. For example, the College of Humanities and Social Science at the University of Edinburgh and the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences at the National University of Singapore offer the Joint PhD Programme in Science, Technology and Society.
