MECHANICAL ENGINEERING GRADUATE PROGRAM  01   AN EDUCATION PROGRAM FOR RESEARCH Research from Beginning to End Not all graduate programs are created equal with respect to research opportunities and early engagement in research. Roughly 50% of master’s students in U-M Mechanical Engineering are involved with an independent research project or a thesis. The Master’s program allows students conducting research to tailor their course structure so as to learn the analytical and experimental techniques that allow them to contribute quickly to cutting edge research. At the PhD level the qualification examination process involves graduate coursework in support of the individualized research topic under investigation by the student. In other words, the qualification and candidacy exams are uniquely determined for each individual student in a way that coursework and research are synergistic. U-M Mechanical Engineering also features a unique Research Process course which is taken by first year PhD students and master’s students to accelerate the development of research thinking, critical analysis skills, and high impact research hypotheses. Due to the synergy of coursework, examinations, mentoring opportunities, and a strong graduate student peer community, almost all students become candidates by the fourth semester in the program. This quick start is a hallmark of a program that is known for putting students on the leading edge of making scholarly contributions and impact in the real world, while graduating students with a plethora of job opportunities.
