Doctor of Electrical Engineering (D.Sc, PhD)


School of Science and Engineering 

The primary goal of the Doctor of Electrical Engineering (D.Sc, PhD) is to grow research engineers with the ability to generate new engineering knowledge. The program of Electrical Engineering (D.Sc, PhD) is designed to advance the professional development of experienced electrical engineers and professionals in the electrical arena by extending their electrical knowledge and equipping them with broad research and process electrical skills, enabling them to make a key leadership contribution to their chosen fields. 

(CSUNY)’s Doctorate degree in Electrical Engineering goes one step further by allowing students to study and research multiple key areas of computer science to develop a unique foundation of practical knowledge and computer science theory. 

Your (CSUNY) Distance Learning Doctorate program in Electrical Engineering will be a custom-made program, designed just for you by you and your advisor. This flexibility to meet your needs is seldom found in other distance learning programs. Our program does not require every student to study the same subjects and use the same books and other learning materials as every other student. Instead our online Doctoral programs are designed just for you. They are individually designed to meet your needs and help you to reach your professional and personal goals. 

Important: Below is an example of the topics or areas you may develop and work on during your studies. By no means is it a complete or required list as (CSUNY) programs do not follow a standardized curriculum. It is meant solely as a reference point and example.
