Doctoral Degree Programs
DOCTOR OF PHILOSOPHY IN CHEMICAL ENGINEERING
The Doctor of Philosophy in Chemical Engineering program aims to provide graduates with competencies in solving more complex problems in process and equipment design, production plant operations, environmental concerns, biotechnological advances, nanotechnology, and other fields. The program also aims to harness the graduates’ ability to perform research and capability to work in upper levels of management in an industry.
The program is complementary to the research program being organized and undertaken by the Office of Research Promotion of the Mapúa University.
The program will cater to graduates of engineering and physical sciences who are involved in production, research, government, academe, and related industries.
DOCTOR OF PHILOSOPHY IN CHEMISTRY
The Doctor of Philosophy in Chemistry program is intended for chemistry students who want to broaden their stock knowledge and intensify their research experience in Chemistry. The program is specially designed to bolster the competencies of MS in Chemistry graduates who are both in the academe and in the industry by specializing in one of the four traditional areas of chemistry namely: analytical, organic, inorganic, and physical chemistry. The main goal of the program is to develop the capabilities of chemists for them to play active roles in the development of science and technology in the Philippines and to be competitive in the global market.
This program is the institute’s response to the call of the Philippine government to contribute to the advancement of human resources and physical facilities for research. Likewise, the Institute through this program aims to increase the number of PhD in Chemistry holders who shall generate researches in order to promote opportunities for socio-economic development in the country.
DOCTOR OF PHILOSOPHY IN ELECTRONICS ENGINEERING
The Doctor of Philosophy in Electronics Engineering program is intended for Electronics Engineering students who want to expand their accumulation of knowledge and strengthen their research experience in electronics and communications engineering. It is a known fact that PhD is the highest level of university education and the terminal degree in many fields. Completion of a PhD degree prepares the individual to pursue a career in teaching, research and other scholarly activities. Nowadays, individuals seek continuous and higher education to fully equip themselves in their chosen fields of study or career. Even the Commission of Higher Education (CHED) encourages all College faculty members to pursue graduate studies program and conduct researches. This program is the institute’s response to the call of the Philippine government to contribute to the advancement of human resources and physical facilities for research. Likewise, the Institute through this program aims to increase the number of PhD in ECE holders who shall generate researches in order to promote opportunities for socio-economic development in the country.
DOCTOR OF PHILOSOPHY IN ENVIRONMENTAL ENGINEERING
The Doctor of Philosophy in Environmental Engineering program is designed to produce graduates who are equipped to create new knowledge with technical proficiency, acquired skills in the field, and values founded on interdisciplinary academic instruction, and primed for a career in the environmental engineering research, environmental assessment and planning, and on environmental education professions and advanced studies. The program intends to fill the need for highly trained environmental scientists and engineers in private industries, in government and in educational institutions and deliver high impact research that could aid in giving solution to environmental issues and concerns.
DOCTOR OF PHILOSOPHY IN MATERIALS SCIENCE AND ENGINEERING
The Doctor of Philosophy in Materials Science and Engineering is designed to produce graduates who are equipped with the theoretical and technical principles of materials characterization and testing, property enhancement and modifications, and materials design and engineering. The program courses are expected to open avenues for graduate students to display creativity and innovation in the design and development of different materials. The program is a multi-disciplinary program that intends to prepare scientists and engineers to contribute to the technological, industrial and economic development of the Philippines.
