General Information for Graduate Students

The City College of New York and the Graduate Center offer high quality, broad-based, graduate education at the Masters degree and Ph.D. levels in the traditional and newly emerging multidisciplinary engineering fields. Our faculty are internationally recognized for their excellence in teaching and path-breaking research. Our academic departments and research institutes are equipped with state-of-the art laboratories and research facilities.

Masters Programs Offered

The Grove School of Engineering offers programs of study leading to Master of Science and Master of Engineering degrees in six areas:

Graduate Certificate Program
The Grove School of Engineering offers programs leading to Advanced Certificates in special topics of Civil Engineering and Engineering Management. Acceptable undergraduate preparation is required to enter the program. Applicants may use the Master degree application form given below.

An Advanced Certificate in special topics is awarded upon satisfactory completion (minimum G.P.A. of 3.0) of 12 credits of prescribed Professional Master's degree courses that constitute coursework for a specific special topic certificate program.

Ph.D. Program Offered

The Ph.D. Program in Engineering prepares selected students for academic research and management careers in the fields of engineering. Doctoral work in engineering is offered at the Grove School of Engineering of The City College. The following areas of doctoral study are offered:

Biomedical Engineering
Areas of study include arterial disease, bioheat transfer, bioimage processing and medical instrumentation, biomechanics of cervical spine, head, and neck injuries, biosignal processing, design and structural studies of biomaterials, hydrogels for controlled drug release, image perception, intercellular communication, microvascular exchange, orthopaedic biomechanics, rehabilitation engineering, renal transport, and soft tissue mechanics. Graduate students have the unique opportunity to conduct their dissertation research with mentors from either CUNY of any one of the hospitals partners in the New York Center for Biomedical Engineering Consortium in rapidly growing areas.
