Students often expect that in classes, there will always be a right answer.
Current and prospective graduate students now have the option to earn degrees in mechanical engineering, after the UC system and the WASC Senior College and University Commission recently granted accreditation for both master’s and doctoral degrees.
Mechanical engineering students at UC Merced previously could obtain Ph.D.s in engineering under the Individual Graduate Program umbrella, which allowed them to have degrees with an emphasis in mechanical engineering.
Graduate students at the University of California, Merced, will benefit from extensive new research, funding and training opportunities, thanks to two National Science Foundation (NSF) grants totaling more than $3.25 million.
Interdisciplinary groups of computational sciences researchers won two of the 30 NSF Research Traineeship (NRT) program grants the agency is giving out this year. The grants will fund 50 doctoral students and train another 100 graduate students over the course of five years.
