What will I learn?

The Doctor of Engineering degree is a professional degree with an emphasis on problem solving at the highest levels of the engineering profession. Because these problems frequently have a non-technical societal impact, and because technological advances are implemented through business and industry, the Doctor of Engineering program seeks to couple an understanding of the characteristics of social and business institutions with competence in solving engineering problems. Each student must pass the Doctor of Engineering Qualifying Examination. After the course work is essentially completed, you must spend a minimum of one year working under the supervision of a practicing engineering in industry, business or government.

The objectives of the internship are to enable you to demonstrate the ability to make an identifiable contribution by applying both knowledge and technical training, and to function in an organizational approach to problem solving. A record of study, normally a report of the internship experience is required.
