The Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) normally requires four to five years of full-time study beyond the baccalaureate degree. There is no formal course requirement for a doctoral degree.  The student develops a technical program involving both research and course work with the help of his or her advisor.

PhD candidates must pass the departmental exam (taken at the end of the third semester of graduate study), pass the Graduate Board Oral exam (usually taken during the second or third year of full-time study), submit a doctoral dissertation, and pass a final thesis defense.
