Graduates are equipped to solve technical problems in a wide range of fields including aerospace, automotive, petroleum, manufacturing, and computer engineering to name a few. Our faculty possess a broad range of expertise in experimental, theoretical, and computational mechanics.

As a graduate student in the Engineering Mechanics program, you become part of a longstanding tradition of excellence and success. Whether your focus is local or global, your graduate education generates opportunities for truly making a difference across every spectrum of society.

The PhD program consists of coursework, qualifying examinations, candidacy and the dissertation. Students take a number of advanced courses over a broad range of subjects related to mechanics of solids, structures and materials, mostly in the first 2-3 years of their graduate study. To be admitted to candidacy for the PhD degree, the student must pass first a written and subsequently an oral examination. The written examination is general in nature and covers subject matter studied mainly in the first year. The oral examination is given in the student's Area of Study and is conducted by a committee of faculty members after two or three year in the program. Students may not take courses on credit/no credit basis until after they have passed the written qualifying examination. In addition, students conduct research and write dissertations to be defended publicly and examined by a faculty committee.
