Description

Advertisement

The Mechanical and Nuclear Engineering Department at Kansas State University offers separate graduate programs in Mechanical Engineering and Nuclear Engineering both leading to M.S. and Ph.D. degrees. Our award-winning faculty are engaged in exciting and cutting-edge research projects in state of the art laboratories and research facilities, while our graduate students are excelling inside and outside of the classroom.

Research areas and courses include a broad range of both traditional and emerging fields of Mechanical Engineering and Nuclear Engineering. With over $5 million in research funding, almost all graduate students in our department receive graduate research assistantships (GRA). Several of our students receive graduate teaching assistantships (GTA) with 50-100 percent tuition waiver to help teach laboratory sections.

Contents

The Ph.D. requires at least three years of full-time study beyond the bachelors degree, equivalent to at least 90 semester hours, including a dissertation representing at least 30 hours of research credit. Students who hold a masters degree may request transfer of up to 30 hours of that degree toward a Ph.D.

The Ph.D. is awarded to candidates who have demonstrated unique ability as scholars and researchers as well as proficiency in communication. The degree also certifies that the candidate has displayed familiarity and understanding of the subject matter in the discipline and possesses the ability to make original contributions to knowledge.

Requirements

An applicant to the Graduate School at Kansas State University must have a bachelor's degree substantially the same as the ones granted by Kansas State University. That is, it must represent a broad range of courses in the basic academic disciplines. Applicants whose degrees do not meet these standards may be denied admission to graduate degree programs at Kansas State University.

Admission is denied to applicants holding bachelor's degrees with a significant amount of credit for work that was not supervised by a faculty member of an accredited college or university or evaluated in units that identify the academic content. A limited amount of credit for experience, when awarded as an acceptable part of a bachelor's degree for internships, fieldwork, or the like, is not a cause for denial but must be clearly identified as graded work.

Applicants to graduate degree programs pay a non-refundable application fee of: * $50 for U.S. citizens and permanent residents and
* $75 for international applicants

English Language Requirements

IELTS band: 6.5 TOEFL paper-based test score : 550 TOEFL iBT® test: 79

Funding

Most graduate students are able to finance their education with a variety of financial assistance tools specific to graduate school:

* Graduate Assistantships: Funded by individual departments and graduate programs, teaching, research and graduate assistantships are awarded based on a student's ability and promise.
* Graduate Fellowships
* Loans: Loans are available to U.S. citizens or permanent residents who have successfully applied for financial assistance
* Traineeships: Traineeships are offered through the university or departments that have federally supported traineeships.
