Sample curriculum: Ph.D. in Mathematical Sciences and non-thesis M.S.E. in Mechanical Engineering
Graduate students enrolled in the Mathematical Sciences Ph.D. program can apply to receive M.S.E. in Mechanical Engineering after fulfilling the requirements of a non-thesis based Masters in Mechanical Engineering, i.e. they must successfully complete a coordinated sequence of ten courses with special emphasis in fluid mechanics and engineering mechanics.
Possible sequence of courses would include:
- 530.328 Fluid Mechanics II (Meneveau)
- 530.334 Heat Transfer (Herman)
- 530.601 Continuum Mechanics (Molinari)
- 530.621 Fluid dynamics I (Knio/Meneveau)
- 530.632 Convection (Prosperetti)
- 530.639 Scientific Computing (Chen)
- 530.625 Turbulence (Meneveau)
- 550.491 Applied Analysis For Engineers And Scientists
- 550.682 Numerical Analysis
- 550.723 Markov Chains
With these (or equivalent set) courses the student can petition the ME Department for award of a M.S.E. degree in Mechanical Engineering.
Completion of Ph.D. thesis in Mathematical Sciences requires additional courses according to Mathematical Sciences Department’s rules.
