Ph.D. in Computing
Doctor of Philosophy
This interdisciplinary program brings together faculty members from Chemistry and Biochemistry, Civil Engineering, Computer Science, Electrical and Computer Engineering, Mathematics, Mechanical and Biomedical Engineering, the Micron School of Materials Science and Engineering, and Physics. With this broad reach lies strength: faculty and students may leverage a diverse and unique set of approaches, skills, and expertise that enable and complement the research effort. The program includes four emphases: Computational Science and Engineering; Computer Science, Cyber-Security, and Data Science.
Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering
In this interdisciplinary program, students have the opportunity to participate in transformative research that is advancing our understanding of nanotechnology, wireless sensor networks, mixed-signal circuits, photonics, plasma electronics, and embedded systems. Nationally and internationally recognized faculty from Mechanical and Biomedical Engineering, Electrical and Computer Engineering, and Materials Science and Engineering contribute their expertise to this degree offering. Among the facilities available is the Idaho Microfabrication Laboratory, a research and education resource “clean room” environment dedicated to advancing materials and processes.
Ph.D. in Materials Science and Engineering
This interdisciplinary program integrates faculty from Chemistry, Physics, Mechanical and Biomedical Engineering, Electrical and Computer Engineering, and Materials Science and Engineering. Based on a strong foundation of radical collaboration and industry support, research fields include nanoscale fabrication, shape memory alloys, DNA nanotechnology, energy, biomaterials, materials characterization, polymeric materials, and materials modeling. We encourage our students to solve global challenges of enduring significance through materials innovation.
PhD in Biomedical Engineering
This transdisciplinary program is a partnership between the Colleges of Engineering, Health Sciences, and Arts and Sciences, and gives students the opportunity to apply engineering principles to medicine and biology. This new doctoral program aims to produce researchers who can work seamlessly across disciplines to develop innovative solutions to complex challenges in human health and well-being. The program currently has three specialized tracks of study: biomechanics, human performance, and mechanobiology.
