Online PhD in Engineering Degree Programs

Engineering doctorate programs cover several branches of the same discipline; you can choose to earn an electrical engineering doctorate, computer engineering doctorate, mechanical engineering doctorate or many others. Studying engineering at the doctoral level typically prepares you for a university professorship, but you can also land top-level jobs at engineering firms or science-oriented government agencies (such as NASA).

Earn an Online Engineering Doctorate Degree

The value of engineering degrees has skyrocketed because qualified engineers are in demand almost everywhere. Online engineering doctoral programs offer you an excellent opportunity because you can work a regular job – probably in the engineering field – while studying for your doctorate as your schedule allows. Most of the top careers in engineering require a doctoral degree, which can actually be a benefit over the long-term. According to the U.S. Department of Labor Statistics, holding a doctorate degree means earning up to $30,000 more annually when compared to someone who has only a bachelor’s degree.

Sample Degree – Engineer’s Degree

The Engineer’s Degree – also called the Degree of Engineer – is the terminal degree for practicing engineers in the U.S. Unlike a PhD in Engineering, the Engineer’s Degree is designed for professionals rather than academics. Holding an Engineer’s Degree and having some industry experience typically means that you will be highly sought-after by engineering firms and government agencies.
