Program Governance

The Ph.D. program in Engineering Science and Systems (ENSS) has program faculty drawn from five different EIT departments: Systems Engineering, Computer Science, Information Science, Engineering Technology, and Construction Management. An Engineering Science and Systems Governance Committee (ENSSGC) is constituted, the members of which are drawn from the body of the program faculty. Each of the four disciplinary tracks has a Track Coordinator. The entire program has a Graduate Coordinator who reports to the Host Department (Systems Engineering Department) Chair. An Advisory Board for the program is to be constituted, which will be the vehicle for the program to obtain valuable input from external constituencies so that the program can evolve in response to the needs of those constituencies.
