We offer PhD degrees in Mechanical Engineering or Aerospace Engineering. Students will have the ability to pursue research and complete a dissertation of original research.
The selection of the program of courses and the student's dissertation research are under the supervision of a PhD program committee chaired by the student's advisor.
A maximum of six credit hours of the 48 credit hour course requirement may be fulfilled by MS Thesis (six (6) credit hours) or MS Project (three (3) credit hours) completed at the University at Buffalo.
Students who already have a Masters degree, an outstanding academic background and highly interested in research can pursue their PhD degree by entering the PhD program.
All applicants to the PhD program must take the Graduate Record Exam (GRE) before their application to the program can be assessed.
