About

Overview

Content

The most important aspect of the doctoral program is the dissertation, which is the evidence of this fundamental contribution. The student of the  Mining Geological - Geophysical Engineering program at University of Arizona   should be prepared for an often lengthy and certainly very demanding period of study beyond the master’s degree. 

A collection of facts and information, no matter how carefully organized or described, does not by itself constitute a Ph.D. dissertation. A Ph.D. dissertation research program will often make use of the contributions from a faculty advisor and others, but it should be clear exactly what creative contribution the Ph.D. candidate has made to the research.

Programme Structure

The Ph.D. dissertation must disclose:

  • The development of new techniques, principles, or theories;
  • The use of old established techniques, principles, or theories in a new and/or unique manner; and/or
  • The use of new information and the discovery of new findings if it is described in terms of an original model or process.
  • It should also lead to at least one significant paper published in a reviewed journal at the discretion of the advisor and program committee.
