Sample curriculum: Ph.D. in Earth & Planetary Sciences and non-thesis M.S.E. in Mechanical Engineering
Graduate students enrolled in the EPS 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:
- 530.334 Heat Transfer (Herman)
- 530.328 Fluid Mechanics II (Meneveau)
- 530.601 Continuum Mechanics (Molinari)
- 530.621 Fluid dynamics I (Knio/Meneveau)
- 530.632 Convection (Prosperetti)
- 530.659 Computational methods of engineering mathematics (Chirikjian)
- 530.766 Introduction to numerical methods (Knio)
- 270.646 Fluid Dynamics of the Earth and Planets (Olson/Waugh
- 270.653 Fluid Dynamics of the Earth and Planets II (Haine/Waugh)
- 270.643 Oceanic Turbulence and Mixing (Osborn)
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 EPS requires additional courses according to EPS rules.
