There are different procedures for students who enter the Ph.D. program without an M.S., with an M.S. from another school, and with a UW MSME or MSE degree. These differences affect the curriculum prior to and timing of the qualifying exam.
Graduate students can focus their studies on one of several subject areas:
- Controls, Mechatronics & Robotics
- Design for Environment
- Dynamics & Vibrations
- Fluid Mechanics/Microfluidics
- Mechanics, Materials & Manufacturing
Forms for thesis options, master's to Ph.D. application, special projects, and petitions.
The ME Graduate Student Association (MEGA) is run by students in the ME department. MEGA provides social and mentoring opportunities and represents the needs of graduate students throughout the department.
