CEAFM Dual Degree Program


Sample curriculum: Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering and M.A. in Earth & Planetary Sciences

Graduate students enrolled in the ME Ph.D. program can apply to receive M.A. in EPS after fulfilling the EPS requirements for Masters of Arts. The student must successfully complete a coordinated sequence of 10 courses (or 30 credits) with special emphasis in geophysical and environmental fluid mechanics.

For example, a student focusing on atmospheres might take:

Other possibilities include tracks specializing in Oceans, Fluid Dynamics of Earth's Interior, or Groundwater. They would replace the final 3 classes in the list above with other relevant classes. Depending on student’s background, up to two undergraduate courses in EPS (300 level or above) can be acceptable.

With these (or equivalent set) courses the student can petition the EPS Department for award of a M.A. degree.

Completion of Ph.D. thesis in ME requires additional courses according to ME rules.
