Course Requirements and Focus Areas:

o   The course requirements to complete your PhD depend on the engineering track that you choose. See the following link for details on course requirements for your specialty area. https://www.colorado.edu/mechanical/current-students/graduate/master-science-thesis

o   Every first year student must take Methods of engineering analysis and two of the core classes offered in the mechanical engineering department (these core classes will be the topics of the first year preliminary exams). Ask your advisor for their input on which core classes you should aim to take.
