Course in Electrical Engineering.†

The freshman, sophomore, and junior years are identical with the course in Mechanical Engineering; in the senior year, laboratory work is increased, and advanced electrical engineering work introduced.

Courses in Marine Engineering and Naval Architecture. The courses for the freshman, sophomore and junior years in Marine Engineering and Naval Architecture are substantially the same as for the regular student of Mechanical Engineering. A senior year is especially arranged for such as desire to take this work, similarly to the arrangement for the electrical engineering course. This may be taken as regular elective work, whenever desired, by seniors in other courses. Special elective work can sometimes be provided. Circulars are sent on application.

[blocks in formation]

Of the above courses, the last four and from 6 to 9 hours of the first three are required.

† Students taking this course are entitled to the degree of M.E.; and the statement that they have given special attention to electrical work is engrossed on their diploma. None should enter it unless strong in mathematics, both pure and applied, and in physics.

*This term is devoted largely to the preparation of a thesis, which must be approved by the Director. If not otherwise arranged, the student will take shopwork laboratory work, and drawing, 3 hours each. Elective time in the Fall and Winter terms may be devoted to thesis work if desired, and a corresponding amount of elective time added to the Spring term in substitution for such work. See final note.

Of the above work in the graduate year, 15 hours per week is considered full time, and the student is expected to elect them between courses (30), (31), (32), (33), (34), (35).

Courses in Railway Mechanical Engineering.

The freshman, sophomore, and junior years are identical with the regular course in mechanical engineering. The senior year of the Graduate School of Railway Mechanical Engineering is arranged to take the place of the senior year in the regular course. The graduate year is arranged for those who have taken the senior railway year.

For graduate students who have not taken any of the railway subjects of the senior railway year, but have had the equivalent of M. E. 20, X. E. 20, Physical Laboratory 5, and M. A. 20, a special graduate year is provided, consisting of R. 20, R. 21, R. 22, two hours of R. 30, E. E. 32, and electives as follows: 4 hours first term, 4 hours second term, and 7 hours third term.

The senior railway courses may be elected separately by seniors in other departments or by juniors who may have the proper preparation and time.
