The College of Engineering at SIUC offers a Doctor of Philosophy degree
in Engineering Science. The objective of this program is to prepare
highly qualified individuals for teaching and research positions
in higher education, industry, government, and other organizations.
The Ph.D. program is supported by cutting-edge research projects
conducted by nationally and internationally recognized engineering
faculty members. The college has well equipped laboratories
and computer facilities that are housed in a modern Engineering
Complex. In mid-1997, a new 70,000 square-foot facility was
dedicated. This new addition to the Engineering Complex houses
more than 30 engineering laboratories, including facilities
for advanced friction studies, information technology, optoelectronics,
gaseous electronics, laser electronics, mechanics, fluidized
bed combustion, composite materials, imaging and nondestructive
analysis, and mineral processing. In addition, the College houses
two unique research centers that contribute significantly to
the intellectual portfolio of the College, namely, the Center
for Advanced Friction Studies and Materials Technology Center.
