Overview
The academic mission of The Henry Samueli School of Engineering has been developed to be consistent with the missions and goals set for it by the State of California, the University of California, and the University of California, Irvine (UCI) campus. Specifically, the academic mission of the School is to educate students, at all levels, to be the best engineers and leaders in the nation and world by engaging them in a stimulating community dedicated to the discovery of knowledge, creation of new technologies, and service to society.
The individual engineering and related programs have published program objectives that are consistent with the missions and goals of the University of California, UCI, and The Henry Samueli School of Engineering.
The School offers undergraduate majors in Aerospace Engineering (AE), Biomedical Engineering (BME), Biomedical Engineering: Premedical (BMEP), Chemical Engineering (ChE), Civil Engineering (CE), Computer Engineering (CpE), Computer Science and Engineering (CSE, a jointly administered program with the Donald Bren School of Information and Computer Sciences), Electrical Engineering (EE), Engineering (a general program, GE), Environmental Engineering (EnE), Materials Science Engineering (MSE), and Mechanical Engineering (ME). The undergraduate majors in Aerospace, Biomedical, Chemical, Civil, Computer, Computer Science and Engineering, Electrical, Environmental, Materials Science, and Mechanical Engineering are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org; Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) is also accredited by the Computing Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org. The undergraduate major in Biomedical Engineering: Premedical (BMEP) is not designed to be accredited, therefore is not accredited by ABET.
Aerospace Engineering considers the flight characteristics, performance, and design of aircraft and spacecraft. An upperdivision series of courses in aerodynamics, propulsion, structures, and control follows a common core with Mechanical Engineering. The skills acquired in those courses are integrated in the capstone aerospace design course. The intent of the program is to produce highly proficient engineers who can tackle the aerospace engineering challenges of the future.
Biomedical Engineering applies engineering principles to solve complex medical problems and focuses at improving the quality of health care by advancing technology and reducing costs. Examples include advanced biomedical imaging systems, the design of microscale diagnostic systems, drug delivery systems, and tissue engineering. Specializations are available that focus student’s technical expertise on biophotonics or biomems.
Biomedical Engineering: Premedical shares introductory engineering courses with Biomedical Engineering, but replaces senior engineering laboratories and design courses with biology and organic chemistry courses required by medical schools for admission. The intent of the program is to produce students with a basic engineering background who are qualified to enter medical school.
Chemical Engineering applies the knowledge of chemistry, mathematics, physics, biology, and humanities to solve societal problems in areas such as energy, health, the environment, food, textiles, shelter, semiconductors, and homeland security. Employment opportunities exist in various industries such as chemical, petroleum, polymer, pharmaceutical, food, textile, fuel, consumer products, and semiconductor, as well as in local, state, and federal governments.
Civil Engineering addresses the challenges of largescale engineering projects of importance to society as a whole, such as water distribution, transportation, and building design. Specializations are provided in General Civil Engineering, Environmental Hydrology and Water Resources, Structural Engineering, and Transportation Systems Engineering.
Computer Engineering addresses the design and analysis of digital computers, including both software and hardware. Computer design includes topics such as computer architecture, VLSI circuits, data base, software engineering, design automation, system software, and data structures and algorithms. Courses include programming in highlevel languages such as Python, Java, C, C++; use of software packages for analysis and design; design of system software such as operating systems and hardware/software interfaces; application of computers in solving engineering problems, and laboratories in both hardware and software experiences.
Computer Science and Engineering is designed to provide students with the fundamentals of computer science, both hardware and software, and the application of engineering concepts, techniques, and methods to both computer systems engineering and software system design. The program gives students access to multidisciplinary problems in engineering with a focus on total systems engineering. Students learn the computer science principles that are critical to development of software, hardware, and networking of computer systems. From that background, engineering concepts and methods are added to give students exposure to circuit design, network design, and digital signal processing. Elements of engineering practice include systems view, manufacturing and economic issues, and multidisciplinary engineering applications. The program is administered jointly by the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science in The Henry Samueli School of Engineering and by the Department of Computer Science in the Donald Bren School of Information and Computer Sciences.
Electrical Engineering is one of the major contributors to the modernization of our society. Many of the most basic and pervasive products and services are either based on or related to the scientific and engineering principles taught at the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. Students specialize in Electronic Circuit Design; Semiconductors and Optoelectronics; RF, Antennas and Microwaves; Digital Signal Processing; or Communications.
The major in Engineering is a special program of study for upperdivision students who wish to combine the study of engineering principles with other areas such as the physical and biological sciences, social and behavioral science, humanities, and arts. Students may construct their own specialization. Click on the "Undergraduate Study" tab above for information about this major.
Environmental Engineering concerns the development of strategies to control and minimize pollutant emissions, to treat waste, and to remediate polluted natural systems. Emphasis areas include air quality and combustion, water quality, and water resources engineering.
Materials Science Engineering is concerned with the generation and application of knowledge relating the composition, structure, and synthesis of materials to their properties and applications. During the past two decades, Materials Science Engineering has become an indispensable component of modern engineering education, partly because of the crucial role materials play in national defense, the quality of life, and the economic security and competitiveness of the nation; and partly because the selection of materials has increasingly become an integral part of almost every modern engineering design. Emphasis in the Materials Science Engineering curriculum is placed on the synthesis, characterization, and properties of advanced functional materials; analysis, selection, and design related to the use of materials; the application of computers to materials problems; and the presence of an interdisciplinary theme that allows a qualified student to combine any engineering major with the Materials Science Engineering major.
Mechanical Engineering considers the design, control, and motive power of fluid, thermal, and mechanical systems ranging from microelectronics to spacecraft to the human body. Specializations allow students to focus their technical electives in the areas of Aerospace Engineering, Energy Systems and Environmental Engineering, Flow Physics and Propulsion Systems, and Design of Mechanical Systems.
The School offers M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Biomedical Engineering; Chemical and Biochemical Engineering; Civil Engineering; Electrical and Computer Engineering, with concentrations in Computer Engineering and Electrical Engineering; Engineering, with concentrations in Environmental Engineering, and Materials and Manufacturing Technology; Materials Science and Engineering; and Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering. Specialized research opportunities are available within each of these programs. In Biomedical Engineering, areas of research include micro/nanoscale biomedical devices for diagnostics and therapeutics, biophotonics, systems/synthetic bioengineering, tissue/organ engineering, cardiovascular engineering, cancer biotechnology, and neuroengineering. Bioreaction and bioreactor engineering, recombinant cell technology, and bioseparation processes are research areas in Biochemical Engineering. In Civil Engineering, research opportunities are provided in structural/earthquake engineering, reliability engineering, transportation systems engineering, environmental engineering, and water resources. Research opportunities in Electrical and Computer Engineering are available in the areas of parallel and distributed computer systems, VLSI design, computer architecture, image and signal processing, communications, control systems, and optical and solidstate devices. Research in combustion and propulsion sciences, laser diagnostics, supersonic flow, direct numerical simulation, computeraided design, robotics, control theory, parameter identification, material processing, electron microscopy, and ceramic engineering are all available in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering. The School also offers the M.S. degree in Engineering Management, a joint degree program with the Paul Merage School of Business; and the M.S. degree in Biotechnology Management, a joint degree program with the Francisco J. Ayala School of Biological Sciences and The Paul Merage School of Business.

Planning a Program of Study
Advising
Academic advising is available from academic counselors and peer advisors in the School’s Student Affairs Office, 305 Rockwell Engineering Center, and from faculty advisors. Students must realize, however, that ultimately they alone are responsible for the planning of their own program and for satisfactory completion of the graduation requirements. Students are encouraged to consult with the academic counselors in the Engineering Student Affairs Office whenever they desire to change their program of study. All Engineering majors are required to meet with their faculty advisor at least once each year.
Some engineering students will need more than four years to obtain their B.S. degree, particularly if parttime employment or extracurricular activities make heavy demands on their time. Normally, such students can stay on track, and are encouraged to do so, by enrolling in summer sessions at UCI or at other institutions when a petition has been approved in advance.
Highachieving students may declare a second major. Early consultation with the School is advisable.
Required courses may be replaced by other courses of equivalent content if the student substantiates the merits of the courses in the program of study and obtains prior approval from faculty in the School.
Students should be aware that most Engineering courses require the completion of prerequisites. The sample programs shown in each departmental description constitute preferred sequences which take into account all prerequisites.
School policy does not permit the deletion of Engineering courses after the second week or addition of Engineering courses after the third week of the quarter without the Associate Dean’s approval.
Undergraduate students who have high academic standing, who have completed the necessary prerequisites, and who have obtained permission from the School may qualify to take certain graduatelevel courses.
Students are required to complete UCI’s lowerdivision writing requirement (see the Requirements for a Bachelor’s Degree section) during the first two years. Thereafter, proficiency in writing and computing (using a higherlevel language such as Python, C, C++, Java, or MATLAB) is expected in all Engineering courses.
The Pass/Not Pass option is available to encourage students to enroll in courses outside their major field. Pass/Not Pass option cannot be used to satisfy specific course requirements of the students school and major. Students must take courses to fulfill the UC Entry Level Writing requirement for a grade. For more complete information, see the Academic Regulations and Procedures section of this Catalogue.
Admissions
The sequential nature of the Engineering program and the fact that many courses are offered only once a year make it beneficial for students to begin their studies in the fall quarter. Applicants wishing to be admitted for the fall quarter, 2017, must have submitted their completed application forms during the priority filing period (August 1  November 30, 2016).
High school students wishing to enter the UCI Engineering program must have completed four years of mathematics through precalculus or math analysis and are advised to have completed one year each of physics and chemistry. That preparation, along with honors courses and advanced placement courses, is fundamental to success in the Engineering program and is vital to receiving first consideration for admittance to an Engineering major during periods of restricted enrollments. Students applying for admission for fall quarter should complete their examination requirements during May or June of their junior year or during their senior year, but no later than the December test date. (Typically, this means that students will take the SAT or the ACT Plus Writing Test in October or November. Applicants are strongly encouraged to take a math or science AP or SAT exam. Applicants should favor the Math Level 2 SAT Subject Test over the Math Level 1 Test. Applicants must apply for admission to a specific Engineering major or Engineering Undeclared.
If enrollment limitations make it necessary, unaccommodated Engineering applicants may be offered alternative majors at UCI.
Transfer students may be admitted to The Henry Samueli School of Engineering either from another major at UCI or from another college or university. A student seeking admission to The Henry Samueli School of Engineering from colleges and schools other than UCI must satisfy University requirements for admission with advanced standing and should complete appropriate prerequisites for their major of choice. Applicants should prioritize completing subject requirements (math, science, engineering) over completion of IGETC or UCI general education and lowerdivision requirements prior to transfer. IGETC is not considered in transfer selection while subject requirements contribute directly to reducing time to graduate. Since requirements vary from major to major, those contemplating admission with advanced standing to the School should consult each Department’s Catalogue section and the UCI Office of Admissions and Relations with Schools, 9498246703, for the specific requirements of each program. All transfer students should arrange for early consultation with The Henry Samueli School of Engineering Student Affairs Office at 9498244334.
Change of Major: Students who wish to change their major to one offered by the School should contact the Engineering Student Affairs Office for information about changeofmajor requirements, procedures, and policies. Information is also available at the UCI Change of Major Criteria website.
Proficiency Examinations
A student may take a course by examination with the approval of the faculty member in charge of the course and the Dean of the School. Normally, ability will be demonstrated by a written or oral examination; if a portion of the capability involves laboratory exercises, the student may be required to perform experiments as well. The proficiency examination is not available for any course a student has completed at UCI.
Concentration: Engineering and Computer Science in the Global Context
The globalization of the marketplace for information technology services and products makes it likely that The Henry Samueli School of Engineering graduates will work in multicultural settings or be employed by companies with extensive international operations, or customer bases. The goal of the concentration is to help students develop and integrate knowledge of the history, language, and culture of a country or geographic region outside the United States, through course work both at UCI and an international host campus, followed by a technologyrelated internship in the host country.
All of The Henry Samueli School of Engineering majors in good standing may propose an academic plan that demonstrates the ability to complete the concentration (a minimum of eight courses) and other requirements for graduation in a reasonable time frame. It is expected that a student’s proposal will reflect a high degree of planning that includes the guidance of academic counselors and those at the UCI Study Abroad Center regarding course selection, as well as considerations related to internship opportunities, housing, and financial aid. Each student’s proposed program of study must be approved by the Associate Dean for Student Affairs in The Henry Samueli School of Engineering. The Associate Dean will be available to assist qualified students with the development of a satisfactory academic plan, as needed.
The concentration consists of the following components:
 A minimum of eight courses at UCI or at the international campus with an emphasis on the culture, language (if applicable and necessary), history, literature of the country that corresponds to the international portion of the program, international law, international labor policy, global issues, global institutions, global conflict and negotiation, and global economics;
 A one or twosemester sequence of technical courses related to the major and, possibly, culture, history, and literature courses taken at an international university;
 A twomonth or longer technical internship experience in the same country as the international educational experience.
More information about the requirements for the concentration is available in The Henry Samueli School of Engineering Student Affairs Office.
The concentration in Engineering and Computer Science in the Global Context is open to students in Aerospace Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, Biomedical Engineering: Premedical, Chemical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Computer Engineering, Engineering (General), Electrical Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Materials Science Engineering, and Mechanical Engineering.

Accelerated M.S. or Ph.D. Status Program in The Henry Samueli School of Engineering
Exceptionally promising UCI undergraduate Engineering students may, during their junior or senior year, petition for streamlined admissions into a graduate program within The Henry Samueli School of Engineering. Accelerated M.S. Status would allow a student to petition for exemption from UCI’s Graduate Record Examination (GRE) requirement for graduate school admission. (The exemption applies only to current UCI students applying for admission to one of the M.S. programs in The Henry Samueli School of Engineering; other graduate schools may still require the GRE.) A current UCI undergraduate student whose ultimate goal is a Ph.D. may apply for Accelerated Status, however, a GRE score must be submitted.
Accelerated Status applicants would in all other ways be evaluated in the same manner as other applicants to the School’s graduate programs. Occasionally, a candidate for Accelerated Status may be required by the faculty to submit GRE scores in support of the graduate application.
Students who successfully petition for Accelerated Status, upon matriculation to the graduate degree program, may petition to credit toward the M.S. degree up to 18 units (with a grade of B or better) of graduatelevel course work completed in excess of requirements for the UCI bachelor’s degree.
Visit the UCI Undergraduate Accelerated Status website for more detailed information about this program and its eligibility requirements.
UC Education Abroad Program
Upperdivision and graduate Engineering students may participate in a number of programs which offer unique opportunities for education and training abroad. The University’s Education Abroad Program (UCEAP) offers engineering course work for UCI academic credit at a number of universities. Some of the UCEAPaffiliated engineering schools require proficiency in the host country’s language, while others are English speaking. Study abroad may postpone the student’s graduation for one or two quarters, depending primarily on the student’s language preparation (which can begin in the freshman year), but the added experience can add to the student’s maturity and professional competence. UCEAP students pay regular UCI fees and tuition and keep any scholarships they may have. Visit the Study Abroad Center website for additional information.
Student Participation and Organizations
Faculty and committee meetings (except those involving personnel considerations) are open meetings; in addition to designated student representatives, all students are encouraged and expected to participate in the development of School policy. Student evaluation of the quality of instruction for each course is requested each quarter.

General Undergraduate Major in Engineering
305 Rockwell Engineering Center; 9498244334
The Henry Samueli School of Engineering offers a general undergraduate major in Engineering to upperdivision students who wish to pursue broad multidisciplinary programs of study or who wish to focus on a special area not offered in the four departments. Examples of other areas that may be of interest are biochemical engineering, electromechanical engineering, project management, or hydrology. The program of study in any area, aside from the established specializations, is determined in consultation with a faculty advisor.
Admissions
The general major in Engineering is only open to juniorstanding students who have completed the required lowerdivision courses with a high level of achievement. Freshmen are not eligible to apply for this major. The sequential nature of the Engineering program and the fact that many courses are offered only once a year make it beneficial for students to begin their studies in the fall quarter.
Transfer Students: The general Engineering major is a specialized program for students who are seeking careers in areas other than traditional engineering disciplines and is open to upperdivision students only. Preference will be given to juniorlevel applicants with the highest grades overall, and who have satisfactorily completed the following required courses: one year of approved calculus, one year of calculusbased physics with laboratories (mechanics, electricity and magnetism), one course in computational methods (e.g., C, C++), and one year of general chemistry (with laboratory).
Students are encouraged to complete as many of the lowerdivision degree requirements as possible prior to transfer. Students who enroll at UCI in need of completing lowerdivision coursework may find that it will take longer than two years to complete their degrees. For further information, contact The Henry Samueli School of Engineering at 9498244334.

Although not required, it is beneficial for applicants to contact the faculty member directly to establish the potential for research support. Early applications have a stronger chance for financial support.
PartTime Study
Those students who are employed may pursue the M.S. degree on a parttime basis, carrying fewer units per quarter. Since University residency requirements necessitate the successful completion of a minimum number of units in graduate or upperdivision work in each of at least three regular University quarters, parttime students should seek the advice of a counselor in The Henry Samueli School of Engineering Graduate Student Affairs Office and the approval of the Graduate Advisor in their program. M.S. programs must be completed in four calendar years from the date of admission. Students taking courses in University Extension prior to enrollment in a graduate program should consult the following section on Transfer of Courses.
Transfer and Substitution of Courses
Upon petition, a limited number of upperdivision undergraduate or graduatelevel courses taken through University Extension, at another UC campus, or in another accredited university may be credited toward the M.S. degree after admission. The applicability of transfer or substitution courses must be approved by the student’s department, the School’s Associate Dean, and the Graduate Dean of the University, in accordance with Academic Senate regulations. Also in accordance with UC Academic Senate policy, transfer credit for the M.S. degree cannot be used to reduce the minimum requirement in strictly graduate (200 series) courses.
Graduate Specialization in Teaching
The graduate specialization in Teaching will allow Engineering Ph.D. students to receive practical training in pedagogy designed to enhance their knowledge and skill set for future teaching careers.

Chin C. Lee, Director and Graduate Advisor
Materials and Manufacturing Technology (MMT) is concerned with the generation and application of knowledge relating the composition, structure, and processing of materials to their properties and applications, as well as the manufacturing technologies needed for production. During the past two decades, MMT has become an important component of modern engineering education, partly because of the increased level of sophistication required of engineering materials in a rapidly changing technological society, and partly because the selection of materials has increasingly become an integral part of almost every modern engineering design. In fact, further improvements in design are now viewed more and more as primarily materials and manufacturing issues. Both the development of new materials and the understanding of presentday materials demand a thorough knowledge of basic engineering and scientific principles including, for example, crystal structure, mechanics, mechanical behavior, electronic, optical and magnetic properties, thermodynamics, phase equilibria, heat transfer, diffusion, and the physics and chemistry of solids and chemical reactions.
The field of MMT ranks high on the list of top careers for scientists and engineers. The services of these engineers and scientists are required in a variety of engineering operations dealing, for example, with design of semiconductors and optoelectronic devices, development of new technologies based on composites and hightemperature materials, biomedical products, performance (quality, reliability, safety, energy efficiency) in automobile and aircraft components, improvement in nondestructive testing techniques, corrosion behavior in refineries, radiation damage in nuclear power plants, fabrication of steels, and construction of highways and bridges.
Subjects of interest in Materials and Manufacturing Technology cover a wide spectrum, ranging from metals, optical and electronic materials to superconductive materials, ceramics, advanced composites, and biomaterials. In addition, the emerging new research and technological areas in materials are in many cases interdisciplinary. Accordingly, the principal objective of the graduate curriculum is to integrate a student’s area of emphasis—whether it be chemical processing and production, electronic and photonic materials and devices, electronic manufacturing and packaging, or materials engineering—into the whole of materials and manufacturing technology. Such integration will increase familiarity with other disciplines and provide students with the breadth they need to face the challenges of current and future technology.
Students with a bachelor’s degree may pursue either the M.S. or Ph.D. degree in Engineering with a concentration in Materials and Manufacturing Technology (MMT). If students choose to enter the Ph.D. program directly, it is a requirement that they earn an M.S. degree along the way toward the completion of their Ph.D. degree.
Recommended Background
Given the nature of Materials and Manufacturing Technology as an interdisciplinary program, students having a background and suitable training in either Materials, Engineering (Biomedical, Civil, Chemical, Electrical, and Mechanical), or the Physical Sciences (Physics, Chemistry, Geology) are encouraged to participate. Recommended background courses include an introduction to materials, thermodynamics, mechanical properties, and electrical/optical/magnetic properties. A student with an insufficient background may be required to take remedial undergraduate courses following matriculation as a graduate student.
Core Requirement
Because of the interdepartmental nature of the concentration, it is important to establish a common foundation in Materials and Manufacturing Technology (MMT) for students from various backgrounds. This foundation is sufficiently covered in MMT courses that are listed below and that deal with the following topics: ENGRMSE 200 Crystalline Solids: Structure, Imperfections, and Properties; ENGRMAE 252 Fundamentals of Microfabrication or ENGR 265 Advanced Manufacturing; ENGRMAE 259 Mechanical Behavior of Solids  Atomistic Theories; BME 261 Biomedical Microdevices. Core courses must be completed with a grade of B (3.0) or better.

It should be noted that specific course requirements within the area of emphasis are decided based on consultation with the Director of the MMT concentration.
Master of Science Degree
Two options are available for M.S. degree students: a thesis option and a comprehensive examination option. Both options require the completion of at least 12 courses of study.
Plan I. Thesis Option
For the thesis option, students are required to complete an original research project and write an M.S. thesis. A committee of three fulltime faculty members is appointed to guide the development of the thesis. Students must also obtain approval for a complete program of study from the program director. At least seven courses (3unit or 4unit) must be taken from courses numbered 200–289, among which at least four courses (3unit or 4unit) are from MMT core courses and at least three courses (3unit or 4unit) are in the area of emphasis approved by the faculty advisor and the graduate advisor. Four units of BME 296, CBEMS 296, EECS 296, ENGR 296, ENGRCEE 296, or ENGRMAE 296 count as the equivalence of one course. Up to three courses equivalent of BME 296, CBEMS 296, EECS 296, ENGR 296, ENGRCEE 296, or ENGRMAE 296 and up to two courses (3unit or 4unit) of upperdivision undergraduate elective courses taken as a graduate student at UCI can be applied toward the 12course requirement.
Plan II. Comprehensive Examination Option
For the comprehensive examination option, students are required to complete minimally 12 courses (3unit or 4unit) of study. At least eight courses (3unit or 4unit) must be taken from courses numbered 200–289, among which at least four courses (3unit or 4unit) are from MMT core courses and at least four courses (3unit or 4unit) are in the area of emphasis approved by the faculty advisor and the graduate advisor. Four units of BME 299, CBEMS 299, EECS 299, ENGRCEE 299, or ENGRMAE 299 count as the equivalence of one course. One course equivalent of BME 299, CBEMS 299, EECS 299, ENGRCEE 299, or ENGRMAE 299 and up to two courses (3unit or 4unit) of upperdivision undergraduate elective courses taken as a graduate student at UCI can be applied toward the 12course requirement.
In the last quarter, an oral comprehensive examination on the contents of study will be given by a committee of three faculty members including the advisor and two members appointed by the program director. Parttime study for the M.S. degree is available and encouraged for engineers working in local industries. Registration for parttime study must be approved in advance by the MMT program director, the School’s Associate Dean, and the Graduate Dean.
NOTE: Students who entered prior to fall of 2012 should follow the course requirements outlined within the Catalogue of the year they entered. The change in number of units per course is not intended to change the course requirements for the degree nor to have any impact in the number of courses students are taking. As such, students will need to continue to meet the same high standards and plan of study requirements as previously required. Students will work with their advisor to create a plan of study encompassing the equivalent topical requirements, as well as the equivalent number of courses to the previous 36unit requirement.
In addition to fulfilling the course requirements outlined above, it is a University requirement for the Master of Science degree that students fulfill a minimum of 36 units of study.
Concurrent Study in the Program in Law and Graduate Studies (PLGS)
Students have the option to pursue a coordinated curriculum leading to a J.D. degree from the School of Law in conjunction with a Master's or Ph.D. degree in Engineering with a concentration in Materials and Manufacturing Technology. For students pursuing the M.S. thesis option, 8 units of research can be substituted for law electives, and comprehensive exam students can petition two course (noncourse or area of emphasis courses) to be substituted by law electives.
Doctor of Philosophy Degree
The Ph.D. degree in Engineering with a concentration in Materials and Manufacturing Technology requires a commitment on the part of the student to dedicated study and collaboration with the faculty. Ph.D. students are selected on the basis of outstanding demonstrated potential and scholarship. Applicants must hold the appropriate prerequisite degrees from recognized institutions of high standing. Students entering with a master’s degree may be required to take additional course work, to be decided in consultation with the graduate advisor and the program director. Students without a master’s degree may be admitted into the Ph.D. program. However, these students will be required to complete the degree requirements above for the master’s degree prior to working on doctoral studies. After substantial academic preparation, Ph.D. candidates work under the supervision of faculty advisors. The process involves immersion in a research atmosphere and culminates in the production of original research results presented in a dissertation.
Milestones to be passed in the Ph.D. program include the following: acceptance into a research group by the faculty advisor during the student’s first year of study, successful completion of the Ph.D. preliminary examination during years one or two, development of a research proposal, passing the qualifying examination during year three (second year for those who entered with a master’s degree), and the successful completion and defense of the dissertation during the fourth or fifth year. There is no foreign language requirement.
The degree is granted upon the recommendation of the doctoral committee and the Dean of Graduate Division. The normative time for completion of the Ph.D. is five years (four years for students who entered with a master’s degree). The maximum time permitted is seven years.
