The Ph.D. degree program in Architecture Engineering is for the person who wishes to investigate architecture and the built environment in focused projects that unfold over a span of years. Students embarking on a doctorate conduct original research that yields new insights into past, current, and future developments of architecture and building practices. Doctoral Studies promotes independent critical thinkers and research specialists across a range of fields within the increasingly broad fields of architecture and the built environment.

The province of the Ph.D. is the exploration of new territories of design research, contributions to the knowledge base of the discipline, and steps toward the redefinition of aspects of design. The program also develops advanced technical research skills to prepare students for a career in industry, academia and other settings in which systematic and critical analytical skills are required. Candidates are supported and engaged in communities of practice where learning is fundamentally a social phenomenon; where knowledge is integrated into the life of these communities that share interests, ideas, discourses, ways of doing things and exploring the boundaries of design thinking....
