Graduate Program

Ph.D. in Engineering - Recognizing that many prospective Engineering PhD candidates are at a point in their lives where moving their residence for one year is not feasible, UAA’s College of Engineering and the College of Engineering and Mines at UAF are now collaborating to allow Anchorage-based students to complete their PhD in Engineering degree while remaining in Anchorage.

Previously, the program required students to reside in Fairbanks for 3 semesters.  Under a new agreement, although 9 credits of coursework must still come from UAF courses, candidates may request a residency waiver, allowing this work to include independent study courses co-taught by UAA and UAF faculty, or courses that are distance delivered to UAA.   Details of waiver and program requirements are contained in the Memorandum of Understanding between the Colleges.
