The Doctor of Philosophy degree is the highest degree offered by the department of biosystems engineering. Students will work with a faculty advisor, however, they must demonstrate an ability to formulate and complete an original research project and doctoral thesis. A minimum of 12 credit hours of coursework is required.


These courses are intended as guidelines. Speak to your guidance counsellor to see what courses are offered at your school.
    To qualify for the PhD in Biosystems Engineering program, you must normally have a minimum of an MSc in Biosystems Engineering. In exceptional cases, this requirement may be waived by the department for applicants with a graduate degree in a related area.

    Students making exceptional progress while enrolled in the MSc program may request to transfer to the PhD program, upon the consent of the department head and based on a recommendation from the student’s advisory committee and the Biosystems Engineering Graduate Studies Committee.
