The engineering doctorate program will provide you with the disciplinary strength to accomplish technical research combined with industry-relevant context needed to solve daunting problems facing humanity. As a doctorate student, you may address both fundamental and applied research problems of global importance for the 21st century, centered on four key industries: transportation, energy, communications, and health care. Today, we face global challenges in these key areas, all of which demand highly trained engineers with deep disciplinary skills and a thorough contextual understanding for their research efforts. We expect graduates of this program to emerge as the next generation of engineering leaders who will tackle some of the most daunting and complex problems facing our society. Currently, all eight of the Kate Gleason College’s engineering BS programs (biomedical, chemical, computer, electrical, industrial, mechanical, and microelectronic engineering) and their faculty are aligned to support students from a variety of disciplines interested in cutting-edge basic and applied research.
