Ph.D. in Engineering - Construction Specialization
The Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) is offered through the unified Ph.D. program in engineering. Upon completion of the program students will receive a Ph.D. in engineering with a specialization in construction. Degree programs in construction are offered at the two University of Nebraska-Lincoln College of Engineering sites, Lincoln's City Campus and the Peter Kiewit Institute in Omaha. The Durham School's Construction Management Department (Lincoln) and Construction Systems Department (Omaha) are approximately 50 miles apart within the metropolitan area of eastern Nebraska and western Iowa. Students on both campuses work closely with faculty and with professionals working in the field and industry.
These graduate programs offer a unique blend of courses and graduate research in business, construction management, construction engineering, engineering, architecture, law, and related disciplines. The emphasis is on advanced studies in construction with application to a broad range of construction activities and applied research.
