About

The PhD is offered with a major in computer engineering. Exceptional students holding the bachelor’s degree may be admitted to the doctoral program without first obtaining a master’s degree. The Computer Engineering program is offered by the University of Tennessee Knoxville.

Overview

Education

Satisfactory performance on a comprehensive examination administered by the student’s committee. The exam results are reported to the graduate committee for approval, and the exam is filed in the department. 

The comprehensive exam is given when the student is ready to apply for admission to candidacy. The comprehensive examination consists of both written and oral parts. The written part includes a complete review of the literature in the student’s dissertation topic, a review of the major tools to be used in the dissertation work, and proposed research. 

The student’s committee may require additional written sections. The student must demonstrate a mastery of the dissertation area, ability to think analytically and creatively, skill in using academic resources, and ability to complete the dissertation satisfactorily. 

The oral part of the comprehensive examination consists primarily of a professional presentation of a proposal for dissertation work and its defense. The committee may cover additional topics in the oral part. The Computer Engineering program is offered by the University of Tennessee Knoxville.

Programme Structure

  • Students with MS degrees from other universities will be required to take a minimum of 48 total graduate credit hours, including at least 24 credit hours of graduate course work.
