It is usually fairly difficult to transfer much more than nine credits of coursework at the graduate level. But students do their dissertations at a distance all the time, either because they’ve taken professorships while still in candidacy or because (for liberal arts fields) some important library or archive with lots of source material is located elsewhere. If your new location provides you with labs necessary to do an engineering dissertation, I don’t see why your professor would withhold his consent to letting you do your dissertation at a distance.

I definitely agree with “Theodore H”
I have several friends who have finished their dissertation at a distance. one moved to TN from MN because her husband got a great one-year contract. She worked on her dissertation and taught online courses for the U of MN while in TN. They had no way of knowing if they would ever come back to MN.
another friend moved from the east coast to the west coast while finishing her dissertation.

You just need to talk to your committee about how to go about moving

and good luck!!!
