Option I (Thesis)
The student must pass a final comprehensive examination. For the thesis option, the examination is based primarily on the student’s thesis work but may include questions on any courses counted toward the degree. The student must schedule the exam through the MABE office.
Option II (Non-Thesis)
Option II does not require a thesis and provides graduate students, including co-op and other off-campus students, the opportunity to focus their programs in special areas through extended course work.
The Mechanical Engineering student must pass a final comprehensive examination. For the non‐thesis option, the comprehensive examination is made up of a written examination over all course work counted for the degree as well as a project report that includes written and oral components.
For all program options, other 500-level engineering courses that are approved by the student’s master’s committee and the graduate programs committee may be substituted for the mathematics courses. All program options require participation in the departmental graduate seminars program and passing a final examination on all work submitted for the degree.
The final examinations in Option II (non-thesis) will cover all course work. University of Tennessee Knoxville students in this option also have to submit a written report and oral presentation of a project. The thesis option, Option I, requires submission and defense of a written thesis that demonstrates the ability to conduct and report an independent investigation.
