The Ph.D. in Engineering encourages exploration and definition of new engineering approaches and new engineering fields with an open structure for connecting and integrating for solving problems. Graduates will be prepared for successful careers as teachers, researchers, and inventive engineers in a world of unpredictable future changes. They will learn about university-industry-government interactions by preparing research proposals, papers, and disclosures of intellectual property for competitive peer evaluation. They will also have opportunities to master essential skills for introducing products in start-up and large company environments. Typically, twenty-four hours (and six hours of dissertation research) are required in addition to the Masters coursework. The plan must contain at least 16 hours of 8000 level courses. Contact the graduate coordinator for additional details.
