Sample curriculum: Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering and M.S.E in DoGEE (Water Resources Engineering concentration)
Graduate students enrolled in the ME Ph.D. program can apply to receive M.S.E in DoGEE after fulfilling the DoGEE requirements for Masters of Science in Engineering. The student must successfully complete a coordinated sequence of 10 courses (or 30 credits) with special emphasis in water resources engineering. The water resources engineering program M.S.E. program combines a solid grounding in environmental fluid mechanics and hydrology with electives in modeling, water development planning, policy, and contaminant fate and transport.
A possible sequence of 10 courses could include the following:
(* indicates a required element for the Water Resources Engineering concentration.)
- 270.375* Groundwater (Garven)
- 570.353* Hydrology (Parlange)
- 570.658 Sediment Transport and River Mechanics (Wilcock)
- 570.445 Physical and Chemical Processes in Environmental Eng'g: I (Ball)
- 570.465* Water Resources Development: History and Principles (Wolman)
- 570.644 Dynamic Environmental Systems Simulation & Decision Analysis (Hobbs)
- 570.686* Multi-scale Flow and Transport in Porous Media (Hilpert)
- 530.621 Fluid Dynamics I (Knio/Meneveau)
- 530.622 Fluid Dynamics II (Katz)
- 530.766 Introduction to Numerical methods (Knio)
With these (or equivalent set) courses the student can petition the DoGEE Department for award of a M.S.E. degree in the water resources engineering concentration.
Completion of Ph.D. thesis in ME requires additional courses according to ME rules.
