Ph.D. Students

In the M.S./Ph.D. program, students shape their course of study working within an academic framework developed with a Special Committee of faculty advisors chosen by the student (and including in some fields, a field-appointed member). The Ph.D. is offered by sixteen engineering-related graduate fields. Doctoral programs are typically completed in four to five years.
