Ph.D. Degrees

  • Engineering Applied Mathematics Doctoral Program

    This is a coordinated program between the College of Engineering and the Department of Theoretical and Applied Mathematics. It is designed to train students in the formulation, analysis, and solution of mathematical models in a variety of application areas. It also emphasizes interdisciplinary research and teamwork. The program addresses the State and Regional needs for students with advanced training in interdisciplinary research, and prepares students for employment in government agencies, industry, and universities.

  • MD/Ph.D. degree in conjunction with NEOMED

    The College of Engineering and NEOMED provide a coordinated program for those desiring both the M.D. and Ph.D. in Engineering degrees. This program integrates the knowledge and skills acquired by the student in each of the programs. Each individual coordinated degree program is tailored to suit the background and research interests of the student. 

    To obtain an M.D. degree from NEOMED and a Doctor of Philosophy Degree in Engineering, the student must satisfy NEOMED’s degree requirements and the College of Engineering’s Doctor of Philosophy in Engineering Degree Requirements. This coordinated program does not change the degree requirements for either program.

    Additional information may be obtained from UA's Department of Biomedical Engineering or NEOMED.
