TYPICAL TIME TABLES FOR DEGREE PROGRAMS AND SUGGESTED COURSES BY AREAS OF INTEREST

There is considerable flexibility in selecting coursework for the program. Courses actually selected from the following lists will be based on the students background and interest. The rate of completion of the courses will vary depending on the student. Many students limit their semester course load to 9 to 12 hours.

Suggested Time Table For M.Sc. And M.E. Thesis Option Programs in Mining Engineering

  • First Semester- Meet temporary advisor; start clearing deficiencies (if any), select potential thesis area(s); background research. Request thesis advisor and committee; first meeting with full committee.
  • Second Semester- Obtain committee approval of course program and research topic; continue course work.
  • Third Semester- Complete course work; actively pursue research.
  • Fourth Semester- Complete thesis and take oral defense.

Suggested Time Table For Ph.D. Program in Mining Engineering*

  • First Semester-Begin course work; select area of research interest, request thesis advisor.
  • Second Semester- Continue course work; obtain graduate committee; present dissertation proposal for committee approval.
  • Third Semester-Take Doctoral Qualifying Examination; complete course work; satisfy language requirement.
  • Fourth Semester-Take comprehensive examination; actively pursue research; apply for Admission to Candidacy.
