About

The Engineering Mechanics - Fundamentals of Applied Mechanics at the University of Wisconsin Madison is primarily designed for students with a science background who would like to transition to engineering.

Overview

 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.
