It may also be suitable for non-mechanics engineering students (electrical, chemical, etc.) who are interested in transitioning to mechanics.
The goal of this program is to provide a bridge to careers in engineering or to a Ph.D program in mechanics.
FAM is fast-paced; students are expected to complete the curriculum over a twelve-month period, starting in a summer session. Prospective graduate students with a background in mechanics are encouraged to consider our primary M.S. and Ph.D. in Engineering Mechanics programs.
Although designed for students with backgrounds in science, the Engineering Mechanics - Fundamentals of Applied Mechanics at the University of Wisconsin Madison may also be suitable for non-mechanics engineering students (electrical, chemical, etc.) who are interested in transitioning to mechanics. Prospective graduate students with a background in mechanics are encouraged to consider our traditional MS and PhD Engineering Mechanics programs.
