About

The Doctor of Philosophy Mechanical Engineering degreeat University of Utah  is designed to give students in-depth study in a particular research emphasis. Doctorate students have more say in crafting their topics and designing their research. In the workforce, doctorate graduates earn more than graduates with only a master’s. 

Overview

The first checkpoint in a doctorate student’s career is the Qualifying Exam. Students must pass this exam in order to be officially admitted to candidacy in the Ph.D. program. The exam is directed at testing students’ understanding and application of basic concepts and mastery of technical knowledge in different areas. 

Learning outcomes

The exam is administered near the end of the Fall and Spring semesters, and should be taken early in the student’s Ph.D. Mechanical Engineering program at University of Utah.

The second checkpoint is a dissertation research proposal defense, which is given within a year of passing the qualifying examination and at least 8 months prior to the dissertation defense. The proposal defense assesses the student’s research abilities and is administrated and scored by the student’s supervisory committee. Passing the proposal defense indicates that the student’s proposed dissertation research is approved by the committee and can commence.
