The AME Doctoral programs require the completion of a minimum of 57-59 units of graduate credit, depending upon the student’s educational background (see below), plus 18 units of Dissertation:
- Direct B.S. to Ph.D. track – Please note that admission to the Direct B.S. to Ph.D. track requires the demonstration of exceptionally good performance in academics and research by the applicant during the course of his/her undergraduate career. This track requires 59 units of coursework. Students who are on the Direct B.S. to Ph.D. track must take the Qualifying Examination no later than their fifth semester in residence for the Ph.D. degree (first semester of their third year).
- University of Arizona AME M.S. to Ph.D. – This track requires 57 units of coursework. Students who completed the requirements for the M.S. degree with the University of Arizona AME Department must take the Qualifying Examination no later than their second semester in residence for the Ph.D. degree (second semester of their first year). In addition, 24-30 units may be transferred from the UAAME M.S. degree program to the Ph.D. program.
- Non-University of Arizona AME M.S. to Ph.D. – This track requires 57 units of coursework. Students who completed the requirements for the M.S. degree at another institution must take the Qualifying Examination no later than their third semester in residence for the Ph.D. degree (first semester of their second year). Up to 30 units may be transferred from an MS degree, subject to Graduate College rules for credit transfer, and if they are appropriate for inclusion in the student’s Ph.D. Plan of Study.
Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering
The Department of Aerospace & Mechanical Engineering (AME) is excited that you have chosen to apply to our graduate program!Admission to the AME graduate programs is granted based on a holistic evaluation of applicants’ credentials, including undergraduate and/or graduate GPA, GRE scores, personal statement, research experience, and letters of recommendation.
A Bachelor of Science degree from an aerospace, mechanical, or nuclear engineering curriculum of a recognized institution of higher education is required of all applicants to the graduate program, with a cumulative grade point average equivalent to 3.25/4.00 or better in previous university‑level academic coursework, particularly in advanced mathematics and engineering courses.
- Direct B.S. to Ph.D. track
- The University of Arizona AME M.S. to Ph.D.
- The Non-University of Arizona AME M.S. to Ph.D.
“Choosing the Master’s program for Physiological Sciences at the University of Arizona was one of the best decisions I could have made in my education. Our department is warm and collaborative, offering an array of research topics and techniques underneath a vast and integrative umbrella of physiology. Beyond my research experience, I was presented with teaching opportunities, which I feel honed my skill of scientific communication. Having the dynamic research/teaching/class schedule not only kept me active but helped me reinforce material in multiple contexts. Overall, this program was exactly what I wanted in my segway into the medical sciences… and with my teaching assistantship paying for my tuition, how could I say no?”
