PhD in Engineering
Residential PhD in Engineering
Become a leader in the field of engineering with a Ph.D. in engineering from Liberty University. Prepare for a successful career conducting research, teaching at a high level, or rising up the ranks of management in a technical corporation.
Through the B.S. and M.S. degrees in engineering, students learn how to target analysis, organization, and prioritization. In our Ph.D. program, you’ll learn how to focus on the synthesis of disparate, complex information and then how to communicate the complex results in writing and in oral presentations.
Position yourself as an expert who is sought after in the job market as you master this high-level process of thinking through the Ph.D. program. The Ph.D. in Engineering combines theory, modeling and simulation, and experimental quantification to calibrate and validate the theory and simulation results.
As a residential student, you’ll be able to work with some of the latest technology and state-of-the-art equipment. Our Ph.D. students work with industrial, national laboratory, and military researchers and have the possibility of working in the summers at these different labs across the country. Funding on a variety of projects is possible as a “Research Fellow” where your tuition is paid, and you garner a yearly stipend.
Learn from qualified faculty members who are grounded in their Christian faith and leaders in their technical field. They share your passion for science and engineering and will closely advise you through the program.
This degree is particularly targeted towards individuals who have an interest in the advanced fields of engineering, high-performance computing, solid mechanics, fluid mechanics, applied physics, materials engineering, materials science, and system design.
