The Department offers a Doctor of Philosophy degree in mechanical and aerospace engineering. Within this degree program, students can choose from various areas of focus.
The Department's doctoral program is a research-focused degree program with the objective of preparing students for a life of scholarship in their field of interest. Central to the program is original thesis research, which substantially advances the state-of-the-art in the field. Coursework to strengthen the command of the chosen discipline and enhance mathematical skills is also required.
The thesis research is directed by the thesis advisor, with input from a small committee of faculty, which is selected for their expertise in the chosen field of study. Students will have the opportunity to work on cutting-edge research and contribute to our effort to advance basic and applied sciences.
We welcome students with outstanding records who will also have the motivation and drive to become leaders in their chosen field of study.
