Wright State University's PhD in Engineering Program is an interdisciplinary collaboration between three departments within the College of Engineering and Computer Science: the Department of Biomedical, Industrial and Human Factors Engineering, the Department of Electrical Engineering, and the Department of Mechanical and Materials Engineering. Students conduct dissertation research in one of seven research focus areas. Focus areas draw on faculty resources throughout the college. Our coursework also uniquely transcends the boundaries of traditional engineering disciplines, creating an educational experience that serves as a strong foundation for exciting, rewarding research and development careers in industry, government, and academia.
