Engineering education beyond the baccalaureate degree may have one or any combination of the objectives below, some of which may relate only indirectly to a graduate degree:

  • • Upgrading: taking advanced work to raise the level of one’s formal capabilities.
  • • Updating: keeping one’s education current.
  • • Diversification: seeking to obtain formal education in another field, but not necessarily at a higher degree level.
  • • Maturing: adding new perspectives on one’s own field without raising the academic level of the education.

Students choose to pursue a master’s degree for one or more reasons. Start your journey today.

The Bobby B. Lyle School of Engineering offers both a Doctor of Engineering (D.E.) and a Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degree. Entrance into these programs is highly competitive and allows candidates to work on cutting-edge research with top faculty in their disciplines.

The D.E. degree is distinguished from a Ph.D. degree in that a Ph.D. is expected to make a significant advance to scientific knowledge, whereas a D.E. is expected to make a contribution to science by studying its implementation and participating in the transformation of knowledge into technology. Currently, D.E. degrees are offered with majors in engineering management and software engineering. Specific details about Ph.D. program requirements are found in the departmental sections of the graduate catalog and online under degree programs offered by the respective departments.
