Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) in Mechanical Engineering
We offer a doctoral (Ph.D.) degree in mechanical engineering for qualified students. The main asset of the UVM mechanical engineering graduate program is the human factor that is our dedicated faculty and staff, and motivated students.
Faculty and Research
The success of our graduate program is built on a distinguished faculty whose research is recognized nationally and internationally through innovation, dissemination of knowledge in high-impact journals, and research awards. Recently, our faculty has won major awards from Department of Defense, Department of Energy, NASA, and the National Science Foundation, and includes the recipients of the young investigator and NSF CAREER awards. Clearly, our focus is to create a research environment that is highly interdisciplinary and collaborative from which our students can thrive.
We conduct a range of multidisciplinary research projects on the following topics: Smart Structures, Aerospace Engineering, Turbulence, Complex Fluids, Multiscale Mechanics, Micro and Nano Engineering, Nanomaterials, Biomaterials, Energy Harvesting, Conversion and Storage, Control Systems, Polymer Manufacturing, and Simulation using High-performance Computing.
