The PhD in Mechanical Engineering is research intensive. It can be funded by industry or by agencies such as the National Science Foundation, the Department of Energy, NASA, and the Department of Defense. Nationwide, 80% of PhD graduates go to work in industry; however, the PhD also provides the avenue for a rewarding career in academia.
