Mechanical and Nuclear Engineering
At the M.S. level, additional options exist for design-oriented thesis work and course-work-only programs. In keeping with the university tradition of providing a relevant engineering education, present course work and research (and design topics) are closely aligned with the technical problems of modern society. The development of a close student-faculty relationship is fostered by maintaining small class sizes and a low student-faculty ratio. Each program of study is tailored by the student and the faculty advisor to meet the student's needs and interests, while conforming to the academic requirements and standards of the department and the university. At the doctorate level, the student is expected to develop strength in the physical sciences and mathematics by taking course work in those fields deemed appropriate by his or her supervisory committee.
Ph.D. students are highly sought.
