Beginning in the Autumn 2008 quarter, the ME Department is pleased to offer a one-credit graduate topical seminar course, MECH 872, that is required each academic quarter for all full-time, traditional graduate students.  Registration by part-time, non-traditional, and GE students is optional, although you are encouraged to register and attend the seminars.  The schedule for each seminar will be distributed to you by email and posted on the ME website in advance of the date.  Presentations at the seminars will be relevant to current topics in ME and will be offered several times during the quarter.  For Autumn 2008, it will be held on Friday 11:00-11:50am in the Rec. Center room 3200.  Students who do not register or who fail to attend the seminar risk losing their tuition scholarship (UGS) or receive a UP (unsatisfactory performance) grade, which will jeopardize their academic record.  A waiver may be granted for an excused absence.

The non-thesis option is not available for full-time, traditional M.Sc. students starting Fall 2008.  Those students who are interested in a project option should pursue the Master of Engineering option.   Note that UGS is not available for students in the Master of Engineering program.
