The Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degree in engineering management trains students to become successful researchers, practitioners and educators in the management of engineering and technology.
“The best aspect of the doctoral studies in engineering management is the multidisciplinary collaborations that can take place. Not only is the technical knowledge acquired of the highest quality, the collaborations with researchers from other areas enriches the quality of research and learning”
Through the program, students will explore the synergism between technology and business practices, and they will develop skills to conduct rigorous research in areas related to the improvement, design and management of projects and programs within complex human/technological systems.
The program focuses on developing the ability of the student to perform high-impact research and high-level design that will contribute significantly in the advancement and growth of the field of engineering management including areas such as manufacturing, finance, public policy, and the service sector.
The curriculum emphasizes a systems thinking perspective that integrates management, technology and social sciences, and enables students to conduct in-depth analysis of complex organizational, financial and technological issues that characterize an increasingly competitive and challenging world.
