Ph.D. in Wind Science & Engineering

The National Wind Institute at Texas Tech University is pleased to offer the first doctoral degree program in Wind Science and Engineering in the country.

jamesThe educational objectives of the Wind Science and Engineering (WiSE) Ph.D. program are to provide graduates with the broad education necessary to pursue studies and solve problems related to the detrimental effects of windstorms (hurricanes, tornadoes, thunderstorms, and others), and to take advantage of the wind's beneficial effects (wind power, natural ventilation, pollution dispersion, etc.).

We're focused on education, and committed to producing quality graduates with the potential to improve people's everyday lives.
