What to Expect
You can complete your PhD in about three to five years. You’ll work alongside our faculty, who are experts in the fields of engineering mechanics, environmental engineering, infrastructure performance and reliability, geotechnical engineering and structural engineering.
With tremendous opportunities to conduct interdisciplinary research, it’s no wonder half of our graduates become faculty members at top universities—such as Washington University in St. Louis, New York University, Arizona State University, Wenzhou University and others. And many of our graduates go on to work for government laboratories (such as NASA) and private engineering consulting firms.
