Our trailblazing, interdisciplinary doctoral program is designed to prepare students for positions in research-intensive institutions or to work at other types of educational institutions and industry positions. CCI graduates have gone on to successful careers in higher education, government, industry, and other business sectors.

Industry and business leaders continue to tell us that they want a workforce with integrated knowledge and skill sets that are needed to solve the problems of the world today. CCI’s interdisciplinary doctoral program meets these market demands and prepares students for that workforce.

The combination of outstanding professors, excellent students from diverse backgrounds, interdisciplinary curriculum, state-of-the-art labs, and professional development opportunities sets CCI’s doctoral program apart from other programs.
