Doctoral Programs

By and large, doctoral programs in the sciences are structured to train primarily future academic professionals. However, it is well-documented that only about a third of all PhD's in science and engineering eventually find permanent employment in academia. Even less frequently do science PhD's find an occupation related to the particular subject of their graduate training, or even in the same discipline or general area of science. At the same time, however, the average employment rate for science and engineering PhD's has been consistently above the national average, indicating that such graduates can successfully seek employment outside their immediate field of expertise.
