A year-long effort.

Examples of Mechanical Engineering ME 755-6 Senior Design Projects are as follows:

The Mini-Baja East Competition - Each year the SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers) sponsors a Mini-Baja competition for undergraduate engineering students throughout the U.S. and Canada. The objective of the competition is to give engineering students a chance to practice what is learned in the classrooms. The premise behind the competition is that an engineering design team has been given the project of producing a vehicle prototype for evaluation as a production item. The intended sales market is the non-professional weekend off-road enthusiast. The manufacturing firm is planning to produce four thousand of these units per year at a cost of less than twenty-five hundred dollars each.

The vehicle must be safe, fun to drive, easily maintained, and be capable of negotiating rough terrain and deep water without damage. Each vehicle will be judged on the engineering design, safety, and cost. The performance of the vehicle is demonstrated at the annual competition where the vehicle is evaluated in such areas as acceleration, maneuverability, strength, and endurance. Such events as slalom, chain pulling, and braking may be used to evaluate the vehicle. Following these events each vehicle is entered into a four-hour endurance race. The competition winner is determined based on the total points accumulated at the conclusion of all events. The engineering challenge to the design team is to design and fabricate a prototype vehicle that best meets these goals.

CATSAT Project - This is an interdisciplinary project. The nature of the project is to build a space craft including the scientific instruments, and to operate it in space. There have been 6 M.E. senior project groups involved in this project so far.

Moon Buggy Competition - Human powered vehicle for Moon Buggy NASA competition.

Examples of Tech 797 Project:

Oil Recovery System (ORS) - Mechanical Engineering seniors asembled a portable, flexible oil skimmer. They tested this system at the Sprague-Newington oil terminal in NH by collecting a slick consisiting of popcorn (not real oil).

Design of a Single Point Anchor - The purpose of this project is to design and test a lightweight anchor which would be remotely placed in the ocean bottom to hold acquaculture sytems.

Admissions Information

Graduate Admission to the College of Engineering

Persons holding a baccalaureate degree from an accredited college or university and wishing to take graduate-level courses at the university as part of a graduate degree program must apply for admission to the Graduate School.

Admission to the Graduate School is both limited
and competitive and is based solely upon academic qualifications and potential.

Application procedures are included with the application packet, which is available from the
Graduate School, University of New Hampshire, Thompson Hall, 105 Main Street, Durham,
NH 03824-3547. Specific program information and admission and degree requirements are
outlined in the program descriptions of this catalog. The completed application for admission
to graduate study also serves as the application (for new students) for assistantships and for
full-time scholarships supported through the Graduate School.

?APPLICATIONS AND PROCEDURE IS AVAILABLE AT WEBSITE:
www.gradschool.unh.edu


?APPLICATION REVIEW.

Once an application is complete, it is reviewed by faculty members in the engineering departments. All
materials that are submitted as part of the application receive careful consideration. The review is
normally conducted by an admissions committee of engineering graduate faculty members, which makes
recommendations to the Graduate School concerning the admission of applicants to the program.
Upon receipt of the committee's recommendation, the Graduate School carefully reviews the
applicant's file. After making the final decision, the Graduate School will inform all applicants of
the action taken. While applicants with bachelor's degrees may apply directly to certain doctoral
programs, the Graduate School reserves the right to offer these applicants admission at the master's
degree level.
APPLICATION DEADLINES. December 1, for the spring session; April 1, for the
summer session; and July 1 (although April 1 is recommended for full consideration) for the fall session. Applicants for financial assistance (assistantships and scholarships) should check the graduate school website for the most current deadlines.

Graduate Admission to an Engineering Department

Applications are reviewed by graduate faculty from the area of specialization, who make recommendations to The Graduate School.

Entrance Requirements for Foreign Students

International students, residing outside the United States, interested in pursuing a graduate degree at the University of New Hampshire, must submit a pre-application form that is filled out online through the graduate school website, prior to receiving a Graduate School application packet. The pre-application process is designed to save time and money, as there are no fees and official documents are not required. (It is recommended that applicants not submit official documents, as pre-applications are not retained after the department's review.)

Once received, the pre-application is forwarded to the individual department for review. It provides the department with information necessary to determine if the applicant's specific area of interest is offered, if there is an adviser for that area, and if funding will be available.

Self-reported GRE and TOEFL scores are required before any department will review a pre-application.

After reviewing the pre-application, the department may or may not recommend that application material be sent. You will be notified via e-mail of either decision typically within 7 to 10 days. Applications packets are sent out from the Graduate School. The time frame for an official application packet to reach you (if recommended by the department) is one to two months if you use a paper application. TOEFL: All applicants who are not native English speakers are required to demonstrate a sufficient level of proficiency in the English language to meet the admission requirement of the Graduate School. Proficiency can be demonstrated by the receipt of a Bachelor's or advanced degree from an accredited institution of higher education in the United States or from a university in another country where English is the primary language of instruction. All other non-native speakers must achieve a minimum score of 550 (paper-based test) or 213 (computer-based tests) or 80 (internet based) on the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL). Many departments and programs require submission of a TOEFL score of 600 (paper-based test) or 250 (computer-based tests) or 100 (internet based) or higher. Recently added is the TOEIC - Test of English for International Communication - (for recommended TOEIC test scores please contact your department directly). A financial statement on official university forms is also required.

Applications from residents of foreign countries will be considered only for regular admission.

Entrance Requirements for Non-Resident Students

There are no additional requirements for non-resident students.

MASTER'S DEGREE. A student will normally spend at least one calendar year, or the equivalent, in
satisfying the requirements for the master's degree.

Master's Continuing Research Master's students who have completed all course
requirements and have previously registered for the maximum number of thesis or project
credits and are in residence completing their master's program must register for Master's
Continuing Research.

All graduate work for any master's degree must be completed within six years
from the date of matriculation (admission/enrollment) in the program. Progress toward the
degree will be carefully monitored by the adviser and the Graduate School to ensure that
adequate advancement is made toward the completion of the program and that any deficiencies
noted at the time of admission are removed.

DOCTORAL DEGREE. All doctoral students must be registered each semester that they use university
facilities. A minimum of three academic years of graduate study is required for the doctorate.
Resident graduate work done at other universities may be counted toward the minimum
requirement upon approval of the guidance committee and the dean of the Graduate School, but
one full academic year must be in residence at the University of New Hampshire. In individual
cases, the major department and the dean of the Graduate School may grant permission to
pursue the research for the dissertation at another institution where access to special facilities
would be advantageous.

A minimum of two semesters of registration in Doctoral Research is
required. However, doctoral students at candidacy must register for 999 (Doctoral Research) each semester during
the academic year, even if the minimum requirement has been met.

All graduate work for the doctorate must be completed within eight years of the
beginning of doctoral study, unless the student entered with a master's degree in the same field,
in which case the doctorate must be completed within seven years. The beginning of doctoral
study is defined as the beginning date of the earliest course applied to the doctoral record. The
student must be advanced to candidacy within five years of the beginning of doctoral study or
within four years if the student entered with a master's degree in the same field.

Admissions Requirements for Transfer Students

The UNH Graduate school does not accept transfer students - we have no transfer application or process. The Graduate School will accepting up to 8 credits from external schools, 12 from UNH, or some combination of the two never to exceed the 8 and 12 limits. Students can do a change of degree from one department to another, however, within UNH.
Courses being considered for transfer must have been completed with a grade of B or better and must have been taken for graduate credit. Courses cannot be transferred for credit if used in earning another degree.
Transfer of credits must be recommended by the program faculty and approved by the dean of the Graduate School. Students taking courses at another university for transfer after enrolling at UNH should obtain approval of their adviser and the graduate dean prior to enrolling in the course.

The following text was offered to each school as a guideline for the calculation of externally-funded research expenditures:

Include all expenditures associated with grants and contracts specifically budgeted for externally sponsored research and associated programs and expenditures associated with all gifts auditably used for research. Include expended funds provided by the following external sources:

  1. Federal Government
  2. State Government
  3. Foreign Governments
  4. Industry
  5. Non-Profit Organizations (e.g. foundations)
  6. Individuals
  7. Local Government

The expenditures reported should be only those funds provided by organizations, agencies, and individuals external to the institution. Cost sharing/matching funds should be included only if provided from sources external to the institution.

Only State government funds that were obtained competitively or as matching funds associated with other externally funded programs should be included. State funds that are part of the normal operating budget should not be included regardless of purpose.

For all joint or contracted projects or sub-projects, only the portion of the center research performed by faculty, staff, and students of the affiliated engineering school should be credited to that school. Expenditures for capital costs of research laboratory building construction should not be included.

Expenditures for research laboratory renovations should not be included unless the renovation funds expended came from grants and contracts expressly intended for the direct support of engineering research.

Any portion of academic year and/or summer salary for any researcher that is not derived from external research grants or contracts should not be counted.

Total #: Report total number of individual grants, not the total dollar amount of the expenditures.

Expenditures: Report actual expenditures (as opposed to authorization amounts) in U.S. dollars.

Time frame for expenditures: Report expenditures for your current fiscal year.

Research centers listed as "WITHIN an engineering department" on the Research Centers page (screen 7) of the College of Engineering Profile, will not have their expenditures added to the school's total research expenditures. Such expenditures can be included in the department total, while still being listed for the appropriate center. This allows users to list the expenditures in two areas without double-counting.

Coastal Response Research Center

The CRRC partnership stimulates innovation in spill preparedness, response, assessment, and implementation of optimum spill recovery strategies. The primary purpose of the Center is to bring together the resources of a research-oriented university and the field expertise of OR&R to conduct and oversee basic and applied research, conduct outreach, and encourage strategic partnerships in spill response, assessment and restoration.

Design and Manufacturing Lab

The DML seeks to achieve excellence in research related to Computer Numerical Control (CNC) machining processes. Our goal is to create the knowledge infrastructure for a new generation of "Smart Machining Systems" capable of producing high quality machined parts in a reliable, robust and rapid fashion.

Environmental Research Group

The Environmental Research Group (ERG), affiliated with the Department of Civil Engineering, conducts applied and fundamental research in the areas of environmental engineering and environmental science. Particular emphasis is placed on technology development in the three areas of water treatment, groundwater remediation, and waste utilization in engineered systems. The group is made up of faculty members with research interests in biological and physiochemical treatment processes, solid and hazardous waste management, environmental chemistry and microbiology, hydrogeology, technology development, and waste minimization.
Undergraduate education, especially for CiE majors, is a strong component of ERG's mission. Over 125 undergraduates have found part-time work with ERG, which has led to especially well designed projects in the capstone design course, CiE 788.

Recyled Materials Resource Center

The Center has seven thrust areas:
(i) testing and evaluation guidelines and specifications; (ii) material specific research and development; (iii) economics of secondary materials;
(iv) new materials and innovative technologies; (v) field trials of secondary materials; (vi) technical services; and (vii) technology deployment and delivery, and training.

Stormwater Center

The UNH Stormwater Center studies stormwater-related water quality and quantity issues. One unique feature is the field facility to evaluate and verify the performance of stormwater management devices and technologies. Fifteen different management systems are currently undergoing side-by-side comparison testing under strictly controlled conditions.

Technology Transfer Center

The Technology Transfer Center (T2C) was established to provide the latest developments on highway research and technical information to local municipalities. Fundamental research projects deal with design of transportation structures (bridges, roads, composite materials, etc.), analysis of transportation structures, and development of new technologies. T2C is also significantly involved with the diffusion of transportation technology to public and private entities through the use of shortcourses, videos, computer programs, and conferences. It is supported by the Federal Highway Administration and the New Hampshire Department of Transportation.
T2C provides CiE undergraduates with "real world" road-related engineering projects. For many students this has been an excellent source for projects in CiE 788, the capstone design course required of all CiE majors.
