Engineering Science – Cooperative PhD at SIUE
The School of Engineering at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville participates in the Doctor of Philosophy degree in Engineering Science offered by the College of Engineering at SIUC. A memorandum of understanding exists between the campuses that designates SIUE as an approved residence center. As a result, the coursework completed at SIUE is applicable toward SIUC's residency requirements.
The program's curriculum combines courses from the Department of Civil Engineering, Department of Computer Science, Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, and the Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering.
The collaborative PhD program is supported by research activities and projects of the SIUE School of Engineering faculty. The School is currently housed in the 190,000-square-foot Engineering Building that also includes state-of-the-art laboratories for research and instruction.
The School of Engineering also administers the Environmental Resources Training Center (ERTC), and ENGTEC, a cross-disciplinary business, manufacturing and technology incubator, fabrication and proof-of-concept facility. Additionally, National Corn to Ethanol Research Center (NCERC) is housed in the SIUE campus. With its resources and facilities, SIUE School of Engineering is strategically well-positioned to provide the best educational experience for our students.
