North Carolina A&T State University in Greensboro is expanding its largest Ph.D. program in a STEM discipline. The Ph.D. program in energy and environmental systems will now be known as the Ph.D. program in applied science and technology.

In addition to its previous concentration in atmospheric, environmental and energy science, the expanded offering will have concentrations in applied physics, bioscience, applied chemistry, data science and analytics, and information technology and technology management.

The program now enrolls 60 students – about 15 percent of those pursuing doctoral degrees at North Carolina A&T State University. But the new concentrations are expected to enroll significantly more students in the years ahead.

The university previously offered nine doctoral degree programs. The new concentrations being introduced in applied science and technology will expand to 14 the total number of doctoral degrees offered at the university.
