Graduate studies in the College of Engineering
The College of Engineering at the University is committed to excellence in undergraduate and graduate education. Composed of the departments of Biomedical Engineering, Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, Civil Engineering, Electrical and Computer Engineering, and Mechanical Engineering, the College of Engineering was founded in 1914 and is the second oldest college at the University.
The current research focus of the College includes: gas turbine technology, filtration technology, nanotechnology, lightweight automobile research, aero-propulsion technology, catalysis, industrial controls, computational mechanics, smart materials, composites and civil structures, biochemical/bioprocess engineering, environmental bioengineering, transportation engineering and a variety of modeling and simulation issues of engineering problems. The graduate program is truly interdisciplinary in nature. Learn more.
Prospective students apply directly to the department of interest.
The degrees of Master of Science in Chemical Engineering, Master of Science in Civil Engineering, Master of Science in Electrical Engineering, Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering, and Master of Science in Engineering are offered. The M.S. in Engineering is intended for the student whose educational objectives cannot be met by the four departmental master of science programs or those who wish to specialize in biomedical engineering, polymer engineering, or engineering management.

- Interdisciplinary Doctoral Program
Participants in the interdisciplinary doctoral program have access to all the academic resources available in the College of Engineering rather than to just those within a department. Engineering and science departments outside the College of Engineering have access to an engineering doctoral degree which expands and enhances the student base, stabilizes the critical number of participating faculty, and expands the academic resources available for the doctoral program.
- 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.
The Graduate School oversees the admission procedure into the college. You can learn more about the admission process, requirements, tuition, and financial aid.
There are also resources available for outstanding prospective students to support their graduate education.
