Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) in Energy Engineering
The objective of UMass Lowell's doctoral program in energy engineering is to prepare engineers for leadership positions in industry, academia, and government to provide society with sustainable energy systems. Presently there are two areas of concentration: renewable and nuclear. The renewable concentration is administered by the Mechanical Engineering Department and the nuclear engineering concentration is administered by the Chemical Engineering Department.
UMass Lowell is located in historic mill city of Lowell, Mass., 45-minutes north of Boston, at the intersections of Routes 495, 93 and 3. The birthplace of Jack Kerouac and the Industrial Revolution, Lowell's history echoes all around you. Former mill buildings and cobblestone streets now add charm to a bustling downtown, steps away from the UMass Lowell campus, which boasts a thriving arts scene, a population rich in cultural diversity, and a flair for festivals.
