Engineering -- Ph.D. Degree
Engineers use knowledge of the mathematical and natural sciences to develop economical uses of the materials and forces of nature for human benefit. The professional practice of engineering requires sophisticated skills, use of judgment, and exercise of discretion. The basic education necessary for the professional practice of engineering is provided by the engineering bachelor and masters degrees. Doctoral-level education requires independent research that generates fundamental advances in technology and discovers new knowledge for the benefit of society. Engineering Ph.D. degrees provide leadership in scientific research, academia, and industrial research and development. The Ph.D. degree in engineering draws on the combined strength of College of Science, Engineering and Mathematics (CSEM) and offers opportunities for engineers at other UA campuses to participate. The doctoral research will usually focus on one of these engineering areas: arctic, civil, electrical, engineering management, environmental, or mechanical.
