Engineering Education Doctorate To Be Offered
November 1, 2007

A new Virginia Tech College of Engineering degree program that offers a Ph.D. in Engineering Education has been approved by the State Council of Higher Education for Virginia. This is only the second program of its kind in the United States.

Students will be admitted to the program beginning January 2008, said Hayden Griffin, head of the Virginia Tech Department of Engineering Education. The research-based Ph.D. program is designed for students with either a bachelor’s or master’s degree in engineering.

“The new cross-disciplinary doctoral program responds to the need – in Virginia and across the nation – for more research into engineering education and improved teaching of engineering at all levels,” Mr. Griffin said.

“This program will bring Virginia Tech into a leadership position in the emerging area of engineering education research,” Mr. Griffin said. “We expect that graduates will become engineering faculty members, leaders of corporate training programs, and educational policy makers – all serving as agents of change in a field that needs changing.”
