GRADUATE COURSES. The libraries, laboratories, and collections of the University are at the service of students who may desire to pursue advanced or special work after graduation.

A candidate for the degree of Mechanical Engineer must be a graduate of the College of Mechanics of this University, or must have successfully completed an amount of work equivalent to the regular undergraduate course of that college; and must pass a satisfactory examination in the following studies: thermodynamics, construction of hydraulic motors and heat engines, dynamo-electric machinery, machine construction, and general machine design. The applicant must also have engaged for at least one year in professional work, in addition to the time spent in graduate study; and must present an original memoir upon some subject bearing upon his profession. This degree will not be given earlier than three years after completion of the undergraduate work.

COLLEGE OF MINING.

FACULTY. The Faculty of each College consists of the President of the University and the resident Professors, Associate Professors, Assistant Professors, and Lecturers giving instruction in the College.

The College of Mining is designed for students who wish to become mining or metallurgical engineers, or to engage in any of the 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.

are:

The requirements for admission (A) Oral and Written Expression, (1) English, (3) Algebra, (4) Plane Geometry, (5) History and Government of the United States, (11) Physics, either (6) Latin or (8) Greek or (14) English or (15a?) French or (1562) German, (12a') Solid and Spherical Geometry, (120°) Plane Trigonometry, (126) Chemistry, and (16) Free-hand Drawing. See page 64 for requirements to be added in 1905.

The curriculum includes only those studies which are absolutely essential to the efficiency of the mining engineer. The number of independent lines of study carried on at the same time is limited as nearly as possible to three. All subjects of study are, from the beginning, illustrated and applied by exercises in the laboratory, the draughting-room, and the field; and the summer classes in surveying and practical mining held during the University vacations are organized for the purpose of affording the student a more extended application of his knowledge, and as an introduction to the practical work which he may undertake after graduation.

Students free from deficiencies may, in addition to the minimum course of study prescribed, elect four units each half-year from any courses given in the University. In general, students are advised to choose these electives in English, French, German, Spanish, History, or Political Economy; but they may follow out special lines in Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Geology, Mineralogy, Petrography, Mechanics, Surveying, Electricity, Mining, or Metallurgy, if they so desire.

Although the undergraduate course in mining can be completed in four years, it will be advantageous for those who can do so to devote five years to it.

The requirements for graduation from this College, with the degree of B.S., are set forth in the following scheme. The studies are explained in detail in the description of the Courses of Instruction.

Special Students. The regular undergraduate course is recommended in preference to any other. But in cases where it is impossible to follow it throughout, students of mature years may concentrate their entire attention upon mining, metallurgy, and assaying, together with the subjects directly related, provided they have the necessary preparation for the courses they elect.

† Three units credit are given for the Summer class in Mining.

Special students in the College of Mining must have a preparation at least equivalent to the regular entrance requirements in either (a) Mathematics: Algebra (3) and Plane Geometry (4), or (b) Physics (11), or (c) Chemistry (126); and since all of these subjects are prerequisite to most of the mining courses, it is highly desirable for special students in mining to be prepared in all of these subjects. In order to take advanced work in mining, special students must have, in addition, the same prerequisites for the courses they elect as regular students. The prerequisites for each of the courses given are stated under Courses of Instruction.

Most of the courses begin in August and continue throughout the academic year. It is therefore important for special students to begin their work in August. Applicants will not usually be admitted later unless they have advanced standing. It is impossible for a special student to complete the work of any course in less time than a regular student. As most of the courses of instruction continue throughout the year, a special student can derive little advantage from less than one year's residence at the University.

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.

A candidate for the degree of Mining Engineer must be a graduate of the College of Mining of this University, or must have successfully completed a course of study equivalent to the regular undergraduate course of that college; and must pass a satisfactory examination in the following subjects: mining, ore-dressing, petrography, economic geology, the elements of thermodynamics, construction of mining machinery, and political economy. The applicant 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 his profession, power to apply to practice the knowledge acquired. This degree will not be given earlier than three years after completion of the undergraduate work.

A candidate for the degree of Metallurgical Engineer must pass a satisfactory examination in the following subjects: metallurgy, oredressing, assaying and analysis, the elements of thermodynamics, 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.
