CSE Option in Mechanical Science and Engineering

The Department of Mechanical Science and Engineering (MechSE) offers a CSE Option in the M.S. degree program in both Mechanical Engineering (ME) and Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (TAM). Students electing the CSE Option for either degree program are expected to satisfy all regular requirements for graduate study in MechSE. A student will normally be able to satisfy the requirements for the CSE Option by taking elective courses within the MechSE graduate programs.

M.S. Program in ME

For the M.S. in ME with the CSE Option, the following additional requirements must be satisfied: one course must be from CSE core courses, and one course must be from an approved list of CSE courses (see below). The M.S. thesis, if any, must have a significant computational component.

M.S. Program in TAM

For the M.S. in TAM with the CSE Option, the following additional requirements must be satisfied: two courses must be taken from CSE core courses, and one additional course from an approved list of CSE courses (see below). The M.S. thesis, if any, must have a significant computational component.
