Doctoral Dissertations

 

This collection contains dissertations written in partial fulfillment of the doctoral degree, from 1937 to the present.

The first doctoral degree was in Chemistry, awarded to Frank Joseph Zvanut; his dissertation was titled Pyrochemical changes in Missouri halloysite.. Zvanut had earned his Bachelor of Science in Ceramic Engineering in 1932. Most recently, popular Ph.D. disciplines have included Chemistry, Chemical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Geological Engineering and Petroleum Engineering.

More information on today’s graduate degree programs is available on the “Missouri S&T website”.
