  • controls and dynamic systems
  • fluid dynamics and thermal systems
  • materials engineering
  • mechanics and structural systems

The high faculty-to-student ratio of our program ensures you develop close ties to your instructors and fellow students. This fosters lifelong relationships and a rigorous intellectual community of scholars.

Many of our graduates enter such fields as computer engineering, nanotechnology, software development, and financial engineering. They also occupy positions in bioengineering, manufacturing, astronautics, systems engineering, and corporate management and law.

Admission Requirements

Admission to this program requires an MS in Mechanical or Aerospace Engineering or other closely related engineering field or applied sciences. Generally, you must also be able to present a GPA of 3.5 or better in your MS work. In cases where it is unclear that the required MS specialization has been satisfied, the degree requirements for the Mechanical Engineering, MS at the School of Engineering will define the necessary reparation. This same criterion applies for degrees received in other engineering disciplines.

Those with a BS in Mechanical or Aerospace Engineering and a GPA of 3.5 or better may apply directly to the program.

Urban Science Doctoral Track

The general credit requirements for the Doctor of Philosophy in Mechanical Engineering degree at the School of Engineering are:

  • Transfer from MS degree (30 credits)
  • Approved coursework beyond the MS degree (18 credits minimum)
  • Ph.D. dissertation (18 credits minimum)
  • Approved electives (up to 6 credits)
  • Minimum Total Required: 75 Credits

The credits above include MS degree credits but go beyond those for the BS degree.

Your studies must also be completed 5 years after the MS degree or the date of admission, whichever is later, unless a formal leave of absence is approved before the period for which the studies are interrupted.

In addition, you must take a written and oral departmental qualifying examination within the first 2 times it is offered after the date you join the doctoral program. Upon passing, you must then form a Ph.D. Guidance Committee and begin your dissertation. To do so, you will need to register for at least 3 credits of ME 9999 each fall and spring semester. Actual registration should reflect the pace of the work and your activity.

An exception to the minimum registration requirement may be made in the last semester of registration if that semester is devoted primarily to complete the work and dissertation. A dissertation grade of U for 2 consecutive terms affects whether or not you will be allowed to continue doctoral work. You must present progress on your dissertation to your guidance committee at least once a year. You can find additional details on degree requirements in the departmental pamphlet available at the department's main office.

  • 8 Courses at the 600- or 700-level, completed with a grade of B or better
  • Two years/four semesters of graduate seminar courses (Fall semester – EN.560.691 Graduate Seminar , Spring semester – EN.560.692 Civil Engineering and Systems Engineering Graduate Seminar )

Department Qualifying Examination (DQE)

  • AS.360.625 Responsible Conduct of Research short course
  • EN.500.603 Graduate Orientation and Academic Ethics short course
  • Final PhD Thesis Defense and Graduate Board Oral Examination (GBO)

There are a number of Whiting School of Engineering policies related to PhD students.

Typical Timeline for PhD Students

Note :  Teaching is an important component of PhD education and students may therefore be assigned teaching assistant duties during one or more semesters.  

Language/Communication Testing and Placement

All PhD students who do not have a prior degree from an English speaking university must take an English Language Assessment. If it is determined at the assessment that the student needs further English language instruction, they will be required to take AS.370.602 American English Pronunciation or equivalent.

Determination of Permanent Advisor

Students are admitted to work with a specific advisor, the faculty member, listed in the offer letter. If several faculty in the Department of Civil and Systems Engineering expressed a strong desire to work with the student, a nominal advisor will be assigned before the first semester to aid in course selection and provide general advice on PhD degree requirements. In this case, a permanent research advisor, from the faculty who expressed interest, will be selected by the end of the first semester.

A PhD student will not be able to remain in good standing with their academic and research progress if they do not have a research advisor. A student who is without a research/dissertation advisor for a period of 3 months may be placed on probation or terminated from the PhD program.

Intersession

Intersession (the period between Fall and Spring terms) is an important time for research. Any leave taken during intersession is subject to the policies outlined in the  Leave of Absence Guidelines. Release time (if any) granted in that period must be approved by the advisor.

The DQE is a comprehensive oral exam to determine whether or not the student is properly prepared to continue in the PhD program. All first-year students studying for a PhD take the DQE towards the end of their second semester, typically in May of the first year. This exam evaluates whether the student is prepared to continue in their PhD studies based on their research progress to date and plans for future research, as well as a grasp of the underlying mathematics and engineering concepts.  Possible outcomes of the exam are Pass, Retake, or Fail.  Only an outcome of Pass is considered passing the exam. If the student receives a Retake, they are provided a single retake of the exam, typically in the Fall of the second year. Possible outcomes of this exam retake are Pass or Fail.  If the outcome of the exam is Fail, the student may pursue, with approval from the chair, a MSE degree. Financial support for a student beyond a failed DQE is not typical.

Annual Reviews

Reviews of all PhD students in Civil and Systems Engineering must be performed annually prior to January 31, and are consistent with the WSE policy found in the Graduate Student Academic Review Policy.  The review process follows the format given in the annual review form . The completed form must be submitted to the Academic Program Administrator by January 31. If this annual review is not completed by this date, the student’s funding may be jeopardized.

PhD Thesis Committee

Every PhD student must have a Thesis Committee of at least 3 faculty members. The advisor, in consultation with their student, selects the makeup of the committee, and this information is recorded in the student’s file. The student is encouraged to meet with this committee a minimum of once per year. The thesis committee also typically serves as a subset of the actual GBO examination committee and forms the final PhD defense committee. This committee must consist of a minimum of 2 full-time faculty of the Civil and Systems Engineering Department.

Responsible Conduct of Research

Every PhD student of the Whiting School of Engineering is required to take the Responsible Conduct of Research course (details on the requirement can be found on the WSE Policy on the Responsible Conduct of Research Training webpage). For Civil and Systems Engineering students, this should be completed in the Fall or Spring of the first year of studies. Students who do not complete this requirement prior to Fall of their third year of studies may put their funding in jeopardy.

GBO Examination

The University maintains complete guidelines for the Graduate Board Orals  here.  The GBO committee consists of 5 members, (3 in department, 2 outside) with 2 alternates (1 in department, 1 outside) and is selected by the Department Chair and the Director of Graduate Studies, who will consult with the student’s advisor. The GBO in the Civil and Systems Engineering Department is a Final Exam and therefore held simultaneously with the student’s thesis defense. Both students and advisors should be aware that 4-8 weeks advance notice is needed in order to allow for scheduling the exam with the faculty and with the Graduate Board.

The student should provide a copy of the dissertation to the GBO committee at least 2 weeks prior to the exam. The exact format of each GBO examination is specified by the individual Chair of the GBO committee; however, a typical format is described here. The public thesis defense is conducted (see below) followed by a private examination conducted by the GBO committee. The examination questions may be on any topic of the committee members’ choosing, but many of the questions relate to the student’s research. At the conclusion of the examination, the GBO committee will recommend one of the following outcomes: pass, conditional pass, fail with re-examination, fail (final).

M.S.E. Degree for PhD Students

PhD students may petition for a non-terminal M.S.E. degree following a passed DQE.  If a student fails the DQE, they may petition for a terminal M.S.E. degree. In all instances, the student must have satisfied the M.S.E. degree course requirements.

In instances where the research is highly interdepartmental, the student, with permission of the advisor, may request that the M.S.E. degree be awarded by another department in the Whiting School of Engineering. In such cases, the student must have satisfied M.S.E. degree requirements and receive approval from the awarding department, as well as satisfied M.S.E. degree requirements of the Department of Civil and Systems Engineering and receive approval from our Department Chair. In all cases, the awarding of any JHU M.S.E. degree to a civil and systems engineering PhD student may only occur after the student has completed the DQE.

Thesis Defense

The Thesis Defense, together with the GBO, is the final examination before the conferral of the PhD degree. The student defends their  thesis in a seminar setting that is open to the public. The seminar is followed by a comprehensive examination of the student by the GBO committee.

Ethics : The Department of Civil and Systems Engineering is dedicated to upholding the highest standards of academic and research integrity. Plagiarism, and other forms of unethical conduct, are not tolerated. Students are referred to the JHU Graduate Board Policy webpage and the Whiting School of Engineering's Responsible Conduct of Research Policy for a discussion of ethics and university policies.

Thesis Readers: A committee of at least 3 members is required to read the candidate’s dissertation and sign the Readers Letter confirming that the dissertation meets the standards of a PhD thesis. The letter may be signed at the time of the defense if the thesis is found satisfactory or may be signed at a later time if corrections are required. The Advisor in consultation with the department selects the committee members, at least 2 of whom must be full-time faculty of our department. The 3 readers are also expected to serve on the GBO committee.  Selection of the readers should be done at the beginning of the semester in which the student plans to graduate. It is the student’s responsibility to keep the committee members apprised of all deadline dates.

Scheduling and Pre-Defense: The Defense should be scheduled, at least 4 weeks in advance through the department’s Academic Program Administrator. A complete written dissertation should be given to the GBO committee at least 14 days in advance of the exam. Failure to meet this 2-week deadline will result in rescheduling the PhD defense and GBO exam. A thesis abstract suitable for advertising the defense should be delivered to the Academic Program Coordinator at least 14 days in advance. The date and place of the Defense, along with the thesis abstract, will be circulated by the department at least 5 days prior to the exam.

Post-Defense : Completion of the PhD requirements typically takes 2-8 weeks after a successful defense examination. All data and source codes related to the thesis should be properly archived according to requirements set forth by the Advisor. Any changes or additions specifically requested by the reviewers before or during the defense seminar should be incorporated into the thesis in consultation with the Advisor. A final copy of the thesis must then be made available to the reviewers for inspection no less than 48 hours before the deadline date for filing set by the Graduate Board.

Additional Information:  It is the responsibility of the student to be aware of requirements and deadlines. It is suggested that this information be obtained before the start of the semester of intended graduation. All students should plan the timing of the final defense accordingly (making sure to account for the 4-8 week period following the defense) to satisfy any deadlines related to upcoming graduation or exhaustion of funding.

University requirements for the thesis can be obtained from the Graduate Board website . Information sheets entitled “Dissertation Requirements” are available to student and contain details on the form, cost, and timing for submitting the thesis. Doctoral Theses must be submitted to both the ETD (Library) and the department. The deadline date for filing is set by the Graduate Board Office. This date also applies to filing with the Whiting School Graduate Committee and with the department. A receipt of ETD approval email must be sent to the Academic Program Coordinator and the Graduate Board/WSE Office of Academic Affairs (for M.S.E students).

Student receives NASA graduate fellowship

Washington State University logo.

Washington State University graduate student Ian Wells has won a NASA Space Technology Graduate Research Opportunities fellowship.

The highly competitive fellowship provides students with up to five years of support for early-stage space technology research as well as summer internships at one of NASA’s space centers. He is the fourth graduate student from WSU’s School of Mechanical and Materials Engineering to receive the fellowship.

“Ever since I visited the NASA Ames Research Center in high school, I’ve wanted to work for NASA,” said Wells. “That is now fully realized in developing optical analysis of liquid hydrogen rocket fuel.”

Closeup of Ian Wells

Originally from Boise, Idaho, Wells came to WSU as an undergraduate. Working in the Hydrogen Properties for Energy Research lab , he led a student team that built and demonstrated a prototype to clean lunar dust from spacesuits. With their idea to use a liquid nitrogen spray to clean off the dust, the group won the prestigious Artemis Award at NASA’s Breakthrough, Innovative and Game-changing (BIG) Idea Challenge.

As part of the project, Wells, who has had a lifelong interest in photography, created images of tiny nitrogen and dust droplets, liquid nitrogen pools, and the movement of the droplets over surfaces. The images were shared widely in the media, including on the BBC and in Smithsonian Magazine.

While Wells’ undergraduate project used boiling liquid nitrogen to clean spacesuits, he wants to better understand the science behind how the nitrogen boils in order to full optimize the moondust-busting technology.

As part of his NASA fellowship, he will use optics to better understand the physics and mechanisms of boiling hydrogen to develop better rocket fuels.

Wells hopes to work at NASA after he completes his studies and continue studying optics, cryogenics, and extraterrestrial systems development.

From commencement to construction: Graduate student aims to make his mark in Miami

From commencement to construction: Graduate student aims to make his mark in Miami

By Madison Brinnon 05-17-2024

Daniel Cutimanco's recent graduation from the University of Miami marks not just the end of his academic journey but the beginning of a promising career in a booming industry. Having graduated from the Thomas P. Murphy Master of Construction Management program, Cutimanco is poised to blend creativity, business acumen, and practical construction knowledge in his future endeavors.  

When asked what drew him to the MCM program, Cutimanco shared, "I was looking for a program that captured the essence of multiple disciplines—the creative mindset of architecture, the business perspective of project development, and the construction criteria of aligning vision with execution. The University of Miami provided this unique mix, along with a diverse study plan that allowed me to expand my vision."  

One of Cutimanco's favorite academic experiences was participating in leadership seminars led by Professor Bob Reynolds. He also found profound value in Professor Brandon Moore's Project Management class, citing it as a singular experience that deepened his understanding of the profitable construction industry in South Florida. Cutimanco also benefited from a hands-on internship with the university’s Office of Design and Construction, where he collaborated on significant campus projects like the Frost Institute and the soon-to-open Centennial Village.  

Beyond academics, Cutimanco was honored as the student speaker during the 2024 Graduate Commencement Ceremony. Reflecting on the experience, he said, "It was truly one of the best experiences of my life! From the weeks of preparation to the moment I stood before the crowd, every aspect was unforgettable. It was a moment to reflect on the lessons and memories from my time at UM and express my gratitude to the university, the faculty, my peers, and my parents who traveled far to share this moment with me."    

Following graduation, Cutimanco will join Coastal Construction, a firm known for its innovative, sustainable, and people-first approach. "I'm grateful for the opportunity to contribute to such an incredible company," he stated. "I look forward to continuing to learn and grow, aiming to make a meaningful contribution to the company's mission and legacy." This next step is further fueled by his receipt of the prestigious Thomas P. Murphy Academic Achievement Award, a testament to his hard work and dedication throughout his academic career.  

The Thomas P. Murphy Master of Construction Management program offers a practice-oriented graduate degree with a blend of construction and business management courses. It is designed to develop leaders and managers for complex building projects, with mastery in best practices related to resiliency, sustainability, building information modeling, project delivery and decision-making.
