GRADUATE COURSE.

The libraries, laboratories, and collections of the University are at the service of students desiring to pursue advanced or special work after graduation.

A candidate for the professional degree of MECHANICAL ENGINEER must be a graduate of the College of Mechanics of this University, or he must give evidence satisfactory to its Faculty of having successfully completed an amount of work equivalent to that of its regular undergraduate course; and he must pass a satisfactory examination in the following studies: Thermodynamics, construction of hydraulic motors and heat engines, dynamo-electric machinery, machine construction, general machine design. He must also have engaged for at least one year in professional work in addition to the time spent in the graduate course; and he must present an acceptable original memoir on some professional subject. This degree will not be given earlier than three years after graduation.

COLLEGE OF MINING.

FACULTY.

President KELLOGG ; Professor Stringham, Mathematics, Dean; Professors Christy, Mining and Metallurgy; HESSE, Mechanical Engineering; LE CONTE, Geology; Rising, Chemistry; Slate, Physics; Soule, Civil Engineering; WINN, Military Science; Associate Professors ARDLEY, Free-hand Drawing; EDWARDS, Mathematics; HASKELL, Mathematics ; LAWSON, Geology and Mineralogy; WHITING, Physics; Assistant Professor Kower, Mechanical Drawing.

The College of Mining is designed for students who wish to become mining or metallurgical engineers, or to engage in one of the many pursuits connected with the mining industry, such as the surveying and mapping of mines, the assaying and working of ores, the designing and use of mining machinery, or the exploitation of mines.

UNDERGRADUATE COURSE.

The requirements for admission to this college are: (1) English, (3) Algebra, (4) Geometry, (5) Government of the United States, (11) Physics; either (6) Latin, or (14) English, or (15) French or German; and, until May, 1897, one of the subdivisions of (12)—for which see page 43. But beginning with May, 1897, two of the subdivisions of (12) will be required; namely, (a) Solid and Spherical Geometry, and (6) Chemistry.

In accordance with the recent reorganization of the engineering curricula, the studies not absolutely essential to the efficiency of the Mining Engineer are eliminated from the course, and the remaining studies are rearranged

with a view to concentration and closer interdependence. The number of independent lines of study carried on at the same time is limited as nearly as possibly to three. The intimate relation of practical application to theory is constantly impressed upon the student; all subjects of study are, from the beginning, illustrated and applied by exercises in the laboratory, the drawingroom, and the field; and the summer schools of surveying and practical mining held during the University vacation are organized for the purpose of affording the student a more extended application of his knowledge, and an introduction to the practical work which he must undertake after graduation.

As in the other engineering colleges, the student may, in addition to the minimum course of study prescribed, elect' four units per term from any courses given in the University. He is in general advised to choose these Free Electives from the literary courses, such as English, French, German, or Spanish, History or Political Economy. But he may follow out special lines, if he desires, in Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Geology, Mineralogy, Petrography, Mechanics, Surveying, Electricity, Mining, or Metallurgy. The course is as follows:

Special Students. While the regular undergraduate course is recommended in preference to any other, yet, in cases where it is impossible to follow it throughout, students of mature years possessing the necessary preparation may concentrate their entire attention upon mining, metallurgy, and assaying, together with the subjects directly related. A course of this sort lasting a year is the shortest from which any advantage can be expected. Two or more years so spent will be found to be far more profitable. Appli. cants for special courses should arrange to enter college promptly at the opening of the academic year, and should in advance consult the Professor of Mining with regard to the necessary preparation.

GRADUATE COURSES.

Students desiring to pursue advanced or special work after graduation, will be afforded every facility that the libraries, laboratories, and collections of the University offer.

To obtain the professional degree of MINING ENGINEER, the candidate must be a graduate of the College of Mining of this University, or give evidence satisfactory to its Faculty of having successfully pursued a course of study equivalent to its regular undergraduate course. He must also pass a satisfactory examination in the following subjects: Mining, ore-dressing, petrography, economic geology, thermodynamics (elements), construction of mining machinery, and political economy. He must have had at least one year of actual practice in the field in the course chosen, and must show, by an original memoir upon some subject bearing upon this profession, his power to apply his knowledge to practice. This degree will not be given earlier than three years after graduation.

A candidate for the degree of METALLURGICAL ENGINEER must pass an examination in the following subjects: Metallurgy, ore-dressing, assaying and analysis, thermodynamics (elements), construction of furnaces and metallurgical machinery, and political economy. In all other respects the conditions are the same as those required for the degree of Mining Engineer.
