Through the B.S. and M.S. degrees in engineering, students learn how to target analysis, organization, and prioritization. In our Ph.D. program, you’ll learn how to focus on the synthesis of disparate, complex information and then how to communicate the complex results in writing and in oral presentations.

Position yourself as an expert who is sought after in the job market as you master this high-level process of thinking through the Ph.D. program. The Ph.D. in Engineering combines theory, modeling and simulation, and experimental quantification to calibrate and validate the theory and simulation results.

As a residential student, you’ll be able to work with some of the latest technology and state-of-the-art equipment. Our Ph.D. students work with industrial, national laboratory, and military researchers and have the possibility of working in the summers at these different labs across the country. Funding on a variety of projects is possible as a “Research Fellow” where your tuition is paid, and you garner a yearly stipend.
