PhD Admission

Main content start

The PhD degree in MS&E is intended for students primarily interested in a career of research and teaching, or high-level technical work in universities, industry, or government. The program requires a minimum of three years of full-time graduate study. Typically, however, students take four to five years after entering the program to complete all PhD requirements.
