PHD IN ENGINEERING (COASTAL ENGINEERING AND
COMPUTATIONAL ENGINEERING) AT AN HBCU
DR. ROBERT WHALIN
This project established and institutionalized a Ph.D program in Engineering (Coastal Engineering and Computational Engineering concentrations) at Jackson State University, a Historically Black College and University (HBCU). After formalizing doctoral engineering program concentrations for both Coastal Engineering and Computational Engineering, the program has helped increase workforce diversity in the greater Homeland Security Enterprise (HSE) and STEM fields.
