Mechanical Engineering Doctoral Degree Program
Objective and Description
The graduate program provides opportunities for professional development in such forms as: courses to enhance technical competence in areas of mechanical engineering practice; training through a variety of experiences in design, development, research, experimentation, and/or analysis in joint efforts with faculty and peers; specialized courses of study required for entry into career fields allied to the mechanical engineering discipline; guided individual study under faculty supervision; and supportive coursework for programs leading to careers requiring interdisciplinary competence.
A student with aid from a faculty advisor plans a program that will be consistent with his or her technical interests and the available facilities and course offerings. Typically, programs are classified as:
- Thermal Science
- Fluid Science
- Mechanical Design and Manufacturing
- Solid Mechanics and Structures
- Controls and Systems
B.S. to Ph.D.
The B.S. to Ph.D. program is an accelerated program in which a student proceeds directly to the Ph.D. dissertation research and bypasses the M.S. thesis.
Requirements for Licensure or Certification
All discipline specific programs in the College of Engineering meet educational requirements for professional licensure or certification in all U.S. states, territories, and the District of Columbia.
