Sample curriculum: Ph.D. in EPS and M.C.E. (Masters in Civil Engineering)
The Civil Engineering webpage states: “The Master of Civil Engineering degree requires 10 courses and emphasizes four focus areas: structural engineering, geotechnical engineering, bridge engineering, and ocean engineering”. Of these, the area of ocean engineering is the area of significant overlap with CEAFM. The webpage further states: “Once a student is admitted to the M.C.E. program, he/she is required to take 10 Courses (at least 2 after admission to the program). The Department must approve the 10 courses that comprise this degree prior to conferring the M.C.E. degree…. It is emphasized that even if a student takes 10 courses, an M.C.E. is not automatically granted. Matriculation to the M.C.E. program requires application and approval from the Department Chair.
Possible sequence of courses would include:
- 560.730 Finite Element Methods (Graham)
- 560.731 Theoretical Methods in Computational Mechanics (Ghanem)
- 560.754 Wind Engineering
- 565.665 Ocean Engineering Mechanics (McCormick)
- 565.780 Coastal Engineering
- 560.781 Introduction to Water Wave Mechanics (Dalrymple)
- 560.757 Random Fields
- 270.646 Fluid Dynamics of the Earth and Planets (Olson/Waugh
- 270.653 Fluid Dynamics of the Earth and Planets II (Haine/Waugh)
- 270.625 Groundwater and Geologic Processes (Garven)
With these (or equivalent set) courses the student can petition the Civil Engineering Department for award of an M.C.E. in Civil Engineering.
Completion of Ph.D. thesis in EPS requires additional courses according to EPS rules.
