The Doctor of Engineering Systems (D.Sc) objective is to help students develop technical knowledge and apply new research methodologies to address problems in the development and implementation of engineering and technological systems. The Engineering Systems program provides both a broad background knowledge base and an in-depth study of a specialized area of systems engineering. Examples of specialization include: civil, electrical, or mechanical engineering. The Engineering Systems program is designed to advance the professional development of experienced engineering systems graduates and professionals in the engineering systems arena by extending their knowledge and equipping them with broad research and process engineering systems skills, enabling them to make a key leadership contribution to their chosen fields.
AIU’s Doctorate degree in Engineering Systems goes one step further by allowing students to study and research multiple key areas of computer science to develop a unique foundation of practical knowledge and computer science theory.
Your AIU Distance Learning Doctorate program in Engineering Systems will be a custom-made program, designed just for you by you and your advisor. This flexibility to meet your needs is seldom found in other distance learning programs. Our program does not require every student to study the same subjects and use the same books and other learning materials as every other student. Instead, our online Doctoral programs are designed just for you. They are individually designed to meet your needs and help you to reach your professional and personal goals.
For South African citizens interested in our offers: Please note that our partner university AIU and it's programs are fully accredited by ASIC the UK Government body for accreditation of foreign Universities, however AIU is not yet recognised by SAQA within South Africa.
