The Schools of Nursing and Pharmacy operate on both the Oxford and Jackson campuses. The Schools of Dentistry, Health Related Professionals and Medicine, and the Health Sciences Graduate School, are based in Jackson only. (Additional healthcare programs are available through the School of Applied Sciences on the Oxford campus.) Other than these exceptions, the schools above are on the Oxford campus.

Emphasis - Computational Hydroscience

M.S. in Engineering Science


The M.S. in engineering science is offered in a number of emphasis areas: aeroacoustics, chemical engineering, civil engineering, computational hydroscience, computer science, electrical engineering, electromagnetics, environmental engineering, geology, geological engineering, hydrology, mechanical engineering, material science and engineering, and telecommunications.

Minimum Total Credit Hours: 30

Course Requirements

A student must complete the requirements for an emphasis area. For most emphasis areas, the degree may be completed as a:

Emphasis - Computational Hydroscience


A M.S. in engineering science with an emphasis in computational hydroscience and engineering prepares a student with advanced technical knowledge and communication skills for pursuing a career in industry, engineering research and development, public service, or for doctoral work.

Course Requirements

The M.S. with emphasis in computational hydroscience and engineering can be completed as either a thesis or nonthesis option.

The thesis option entails 24 credit hours of course work (plus at least 6 thesis hours), including 12 hours of core courses in numerical methods, fluid dynamics, transport phenomena, and hydrosciences, and 12 hours of approved electives.

The nonthesis option includes an additional 3 hours of approved electives, as well as completion of a research project and report. Both options require the publication of a technical paper in either a journal or a conference proceeding; attendance and presentation at research seminars; and passing the comprehensive oral exam.

Other Academic Requirements

For either option, a candidate must pass a final oral examination.
