Ph.D. in Engineering
Posted By admin On February 8, 2010 @ 4:58 pm In | Comments Disabled
The Ph.D. in Engineering degree program is designed for students who have graduate-level training in engineering, the sciences, or mathematics, and who wish to carry out doctoral-level research in engineering. The program includes advanced courses beyond the master’s level as well as novel and independent research.
The Ph.D. degree program is college-wide and may be earned through study in any of the departments. Engineering research is an inherently interdisciplinary activity; faculty members associated with the Ph.D. degree program are drawn from all departments in the College. They represent a wide variety of technical backgrounds and interests. The size of the College fosters cooperative research among disciplines. The program offers the motivated student an opportunity to acquire the kind of broad-based background in engineering and applied science that is difficult to obtain in more conventional, narrowly-focused, and discipline-specific programs. Graduates of this program will have acquired a background in diverse engineering approaches that will make them very effective in their advanced-technology careers in research, academia, or industry
Admission procedures will be guided by the standard requirements for admission to the graduate programs in the College of Engineering and the general requirements of the Graduate School of Temple University.
Students must pass a qualifying examination, which evaluates communication, research, and information-synthesis skills, and a preliminary examination, which evaluates breadth of knowledge in engineering/applied sciences. All Ph.D. students must complete a minimum of 30 semester hours of coursework beyond their master’s degrees. More information about completing the Ph.D. degree can be found under the College of Engineering‘s guidelines section and at the Graduate School.
All Ph.D. students must define a dissertation problem and present it to their Dissertation Advisory Committee both in writing and orally at an open seminar. They then must carry out the research towards the problem solution and ultimately defend the resulting Ph.D. dissertation in a public seminar before their Dissertation Examining Committee. The student will be required to publish at least two research papers in either peer-reviewed journals or refereed conference proceedings. Acceptance of research articles for publication will be considered to have satisfied this requirement.
Current faculty research interests determine the possible areas of concentration. These include, but are not limited to, the following categories:
The student in consultation with the Doctoral Advisory Committee and/or the advisor develops a recommended program of study for any of these areas.
