A20: Although our Master’s degree is a terminal degree for most students, there are opportunities to continue for a PhD. The coursework structure of the Design Impact program is such that you can smoothly transition to a PhD program through the School of Engineering. For example, if you were accepted into either Professor MacDonald’s or Professor Follmer’s labs for PhD research, you could receive a PhD in Mechanical Engineering. There is a link on our website under “Research” where you can look at their research programs to learn more about what they do.
