Ph.D. in Aerospace Engineering
Introduction
Ph.D. in Aerospace Engineering is a 48 credit hour programme beyond Masters which includes a Ph.D. dissertation equivalent to 30 credit hours and 18 credit hours of course work in the student’s chosen area of specialization. These courses can be any combination of the advanced level courses that are outlines in the MS course list. Requirement for obtaining a Ph.D. degree includes:
  • Maintaining a CGPA of 3.0/4.0 in the course work
  • Passing of the Ph.D. qualifying exam.
  • Acceptance for publication of at least one paper in a peer reviewed journal listed in the ISI citation index.
  • Two positive reports about the student’s research work from international scholars in the field.
  • Successful public defense of the Ph.D. thesis.
Currently the following specializations can be pursued in the course of the doctorate degree.
  • Structural Analysis
  • Structural Dynamics & Aeroelasticity
  • Mechanics of Composite materials and failure trends
  • Turbulence Modelling
  • Aeroacoustics
  • Computational Fluid Dynamics
  • Fluid Structure Interaction
  • Turbomachinery
  • Configurational Aero/hydro dynamics
The Ph.D. degree is expected to be completed in four years. The maximum time allowed for the Ph.D. programme is a six years. The minimum time required for completion of Ph.D. degree requirement is three years.
