Graduate Degree

The Ph.D. in Intelligent Systems Engineering program is at the forefront of 21st-century engineering, conducting research and developing applications for the small-scale, networked, and mobile technology that is changing the world.

We’re currently accepting Ph.D. students for fall 2016. (We’re also in the early stages of developing an M.S.). Our first class of Ph.D. students will help shape the program for every class that follows. They’ll also help define how the work here could result in the next generation of personalized health devices, protein engineering, autonomous mobile computing platforms, pollutant-measuring drones, replacements for damaged areas of the brain and more.

Big data and intelligent systems are central to the Ph.D. You can also choose among six tracks:

  • Bioengineering
  • Computer engineering
  • Cyber-physical systems
  • Environmental engineering
  • Molecular and nanoscale engineering
  • Neuro-engineering

Whether you want to teach at a university or conduct research in academia, government, or industry, your first step is to learn more about our program.
