This 30 credit hour professional degree program stresses applications of Engineering Mechanics and Applied Mathematics and Modeling. The centerpiece of the program is a project, either single or team-based, on important real-world problems.
Engineering Mechanics: Students in this program will deepen and broaden their knowledge of mechanics as applied to different material systems. The course work centers on additional study of solid mechanics, fracture mechanics, materials and computational methods widely used in industries (e.g., the finite element method). Potential employers are companies interested in computer modeling of mechanical systems and failure and reliability analysis.
Applied Mathematics and Modeling: Students in this program do course work in mathematical modeling and computational methods. They will have great flexibility in their choice of studies. Students who graduate from this program are in a good position to pursue higher degrees or work for financial or informational organizations.
