Doctor of Philosophy in Engineering


The PhD in engineering satisifes the demand in academia and industry for highly qualified personnel.  We currently offer a Field in Civil Engineering and in Electrical and Computer Engineering; other Fields are being developed.  The program is directed to graduates from the existing Master's programs in Engineering at Lakehead University and outstanding graduates at the post graduate level from other universities. 

The objective of the program is to foster scholarly skills and independent research abilities at the highest level through a combination of formal course work and dissertation (research work). 

Within the field of Electrical and Computer Engineering, we offer specializations in Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, Software Engineering, and Mechatronics.  The first three are well-established Engineering disciplines.  The fourth, Mechatronics, is a new but increasingly important area that overlaps the three first disciplines and Mechanical Engineering. 

The following Doctor of Philosophy in Engineering program offerings are available:
Each program is marked with a TB, O or W designation to distinguish where each program is available.
(TB = Thunder Bay campus, O = Orillia campus, W = online)
