Focus: Advancing research that integrates engineering principles with the life sciences to improve health, the environment, and engineering applications.
The Bioengineering doctoral program is a unique and interdisciplinary graduate program, ranked 2nd in the nation by U.S. News and World Report.
The BioE graduate program is the most innovative and integrative program available at Georgia Tech, giving the students the flexibility and creativity to pursue interdisciplinary research and create their own future.
Students are free to work with any of the 90+ participating program faculty members from the Colleges of Engineering, Computing, Sciences, and Architecture, as well as Emory University School of Medicine.
Focus: preparing graduate students to reach the forefront of leadership in the field of bioinformatics and computational biology; and integrating research and education on the use of information technologies in biology and medicine.
Focus: educating a new breed of multidisciplinary researchers in robotics who will provide leadership in this rapidly evolving discipline and help meet the growing industrial and societal demand for advanced education and research in robotics.
Focus: advancing knowledge and research in areas such as aerodynamics and fluid mechanics, aeroelasticity and structural dynamics, flight mechanics and control, propulsion and combustion, structural mechanics and materials behavior, and system design and optimization.
Focus: advancing knowledge and research in areas such as catalysis, reaction kinetics, complex fluids, microelectronics, microfluidics, optimization, bioinformatics, polymers, sustainable development, pulp and paper, separations, carbon capture, biomedicine, solar energy, thermodynamics, MEMS, environmental science, reaction engineering, cancer diagnostics and therapeutics, biofuels, air quality, modeling, and process synthesis and control.
Doctoral candidates tailor a highly individualized Program of Study (typically 50 credit hours of courses beyond the bachelor's degree) to develop expertise in one of the following major specialization areas:
Construction and Infrastructure Systems Engineering
Environmental Fluid Mechanics and Water Resources
Structural Engineering, Mechanics and Materials
Transportation Systems Engineering
As part of the Program of Study, candidates must complete a Minor Field of Study. To demonstrate the ability for independent research, the candidate must pass a qualifying examination, a thesis proposal, and a thesis defense.
Candidates are required to complete a doctoral thesis reporting the results of original and independent research that derives from the scientific method and demonstrates creativity and technical expertise in the principles and methods essential to modern Civil & Environmental Engineering.
Focus: advancing knowledge and research in areas such as bioengineering, computer engineering, digital signal processing, electrical energy, electromagnetics, electronic design and applications, microsystems, optics and photonics, systems and controls, and telecommunications.
Ph.D. in Industrial Engineering – Supply Chain Engineering Track
This program focuses on the design and analysis of manufacturing, distribution, and transportation systems. Students take fundamental coursework in optimization, stochastics, and statistics in order to build a firm base from which to deal with the myriad of issues that arise in settings involving modern supply chain systems modeling and analysis: production and inventory systems, vehicle routing and scheduling, warehousing, and logistics.
Ph.D. in Industrial Engineering – Systems Informatics and Control Track
The degree Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) in Industrial Engineering recognizes students with demonstrated proficiency and high achievement in research within the disciplines represented in the School faculty. Students earning the Ph.D. in IE focus on critical challenges in key systems, including supply chains, healthcare, manufacturing, information technology, and energy.
Ph.D. in Nuclear Engineering – Medical Physics Option
The medical physics option in the doctoral program is designed for students with a specific interest in the fields of medical physics and leads to a Doctor of Philosophy with a major in Nuclear Engineering.
Ph.D. in Nuclear Engineering – Nuclear Enterprise Management Option
The specialization in Nuclear Enterprise Management in the doctoral program is designed for students with a specific interest in leadership and management careers throughout the nuclear industry and leads to a Doctor of Philosophy with a major in Nuclear Engineering.
Focus: advancing knowledge and research in areas such as mathematical optimization; stochastic and probabilistic methods; statistical modeling and analysis; design and analysis of algorithms; and computational and numerical methods.
