The purpose of the breadth requirement is to expose the student to the connections between the sub-disciplines of mechanical engineering. The Core A course is a pre-requisite for the Core B course in the same sequence. The ability to apply mathematics, both classical analysis and computational techniques, to the formulation and solution of problems is central to engineering practice.
The MS curriculum addresses this need in two ways. First, the application of a variety of analytical topics integrated within the Core courses. Second, all MS students are required to take one of the above courses to satisfy the mathematical component of this program. These three courses are advanced engineering mathematics courses that emphasize different topics - analytical ME or numerical ES solution of ordinary and partial differential equations, mathematical transformation techniques ME , or statistics and process control ME Students may elect to take more than one of the courses if they choose, in which case the 2nd course would count towards the "focus course work" requirement see below.
The remaining courses should be selected by students in consultation with their advisor s. These elective courses should be relevant to thesis work, and must be at the graduate level or above. For students that did not take the Design Core, the Department recommends a design course as part of the program of study. These courses need not be taken in mechanical engineering. With advisor approval, students may take their focus coursework at the graduate level in other engineering departments, in computer science, in the physical sciences, or in mathematics.
However, taking courses outside of engineering and the sciences are exceptions in this program requiring departmental approval prior to registration; otherwise such courses will not be counted towards the degree requirements.
Regular attendance at Mechanical Engineering weekly Seminar Series is an integral part of full-time graduate studies for research thesis students. The seminars, held on Thursday afternoons, feature speakers from both inside and outside of Tufts. The seminars provide students and faculty with an opportunity to learn about the latest developments in mechanical engineering research and practice.
Students who pass the seminar will receive an "S" on their transcript; students who fail the seminar will receive a "U" on their transcript. Preparation of a thesis representing an independent research work is a pivotal phase of the MS degree program. It provides the student with an opportunity to work on an open-ended problem, developing a particular solution that is not pre-determined and involving synthesis of knowledge and intellectual creativity. Students are also strongly encouraged to present their research at scientific conferences and publish the results of their thesis research in a peer-reviewed journal.
