WE ARE COMMITTED to excellence in 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 is the second oldest college at the University.

The engineering graduate programs at The University of Akron increases skills, boosts confidence, and adds value to both the student and employer. 

► We offer an interdisciplinary M.S. in Engineering Degree Program to accommodate working schedules.

Graduate degree programs

Master of Science Degrees

Ph.D. Degrees

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. Students in 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.
