Engineering Program Description
The Doctor of Engineering degree is a high-level, terminal degree in engineering particularly suited for candidates already in the workforce who are seeking to advance their careers. We will be enrolling candidates with master&#39;s-level education, strong work experience, and proven technical ability and creativity. <br> <br>Doctor of Engineering students will be guided by a Whiting School professor serving as their primary advisor. Typical D.Eng. students will be working in a technical career and will also have a co-advisor (vetted by Whiting School Faculty) at their place of employment. They will draw on the vast course offerings of our Engineering for Professionals programs to provide background knowledge they need to pursue a creative, advanced research project whose scope is comparable to Ph.D. research. Various milestones (diagnostic interview, preliminary examination, research proposal and examination, and research project defense) coupled with semiannual, on-campus conferences will ensure that students stay on track for their degree and produce high quality results. <br>
