Student Projects

Student Design Projects Description

Petroleum Engineering Capstone Design - Students engage in a team-oriented, integrated petroleum design project. The project will require team members to bring together information, techniques and approaches from a variety of petroleum engineering activities to arrive at practical solutions to realistic case studies. The culmination of the project will be a final written report and oral presentation evaluated by peers and industry personnel.
Electrical Engineering - All students complete a senior project. Recent successes include two unguided robotics vehicles which participated in the International Grand Robotics Competition, and a dual-mode electric vehicle (the Hybrid Hurricane). Both group projects received industrial and college sponsorship.
Mechanical Engineering - ME seniors design, build, test, and deliver working prototypes to real-world customers. Projects are sponsored by industry partners, donations, endowment funds, and the university. Projects often win local, state, and national awards and sometimes result in patents. Projects include hybrid-electric and other cars, devices for persons with disabilities, sports and recreational equipment, and manufacturing equipment for local industry.

Dual Degrees

Undergraduate Engineering Dual Degree Program Description

Students who wish to major in two different fields may do so by completing the minimum number of hours for each major. Double majors can be pursued either in one college or in two different colleges, but in the latter case, the permission of the deans of both colleges must be obtained at the time the second major is declared. Any student pursuing a double major who also wishes to earn a second degree must complete an additional 30 hours beyond the total required for a single degree.

A grade-point average of at least 3.0 on a 4.0 scale in the undergraduate major is generally required, but requirements may vary between programs and may be higher than 3.0. Fitness of character may also be considered. Applicants for admission to most graduate programs must take the Graduate Record Examination General Tests.

Graduate Admission to an Engineering Department

Admission to an engineering department is approved by the Graduate Dean and the major program administration. Such applicants, having selected a major field of study, must meet requirements set by the major program.

Entrance Requirements for Foreign Students

International applicants must attain First Class in examinations taken during their undergraduate tenure at a four-year baccalaureate institutions. Transcripts sent to the Graduate School must be accompanied by a certified English translation, the rank in the applicant's graduating class, and a clear explanation of the grading system used at the undergraduate institution. A letter of financial support must accompany the application for admission to the Graduate School. Applicants for whom English is not the first language must take the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL). The minimum TOEFL score accepted is 550.

Residency Requirements

When the student has enrolled in the required number of hours for the degree but has not finished all requirements for the degree, he or she enrolls in Graduate Residency. This requirement is particularly applicable but not restricted to the semester in which the student completes work for the degree.

Admissions Requirements for Transfer Students

Transfer credit is limited to six hours at the master's level and twelve hours at the doctoral level. The major advisor is responsible for determining the applicability of transfer work to the student's program. Any such graduate credit must have been earned at an accredited graduate school and completed within the six-year statute of limitations. Transfer credit will not be granted for any course work with a grade below B. Credit for transfer work will be recommended by the major advisor to the Graduate School only after the student has completed the same number of credit hours at The University of Tulsa with at least a 3.0 grade point average.

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.

Much work is done in drillstring mechanics -- statics and dynamics, well bore hydraulics including conventional and compressible fluids, buttings transport, well bore stability, and formation damage. Current projects include the effect of fluid flow on drillstring dynamics, optimization of drilling parameters for horizontal wells, cuttings bed erosion in horizontal and inclined well bores, aerated mud hydraulics and flow patterns in the well bore annulus, application of BFS for well bore stability, analytical and experimental modeling of actual force transfer in curved well bores, and cuttings transport with foam in inclined and horizontal well bores. A new flow loop for cuttings transport with conventional and aerated muds is under construction.

Tulsa University Fluid Flow Projects

TUFFP conducts applied research on multiphase flow in pipes as encountered during the production and transportation of oil and gas. TUFFP research activity has resulted in distribution to members of over 90 research reports and numerous computer programs and extensive experimental data. Research is conducted primarily by M.S. and Ph.S. petroleum engineering graduate students working under the supervision of experiences Research Associates. Several state-of-the-art experimental test facilities have been constructed for the purpose of obtaining high-quality data and developing predictive models to improve multiphase flow design calculations. TUFFP conducts an annual survey of member firms to ensure that the most critical multiphase flow problems are being addressed. As a result of the summer 1997 survey, multiphase flow in hilly terrain pipelines has been confirmed as a key area of needed research. Several related projects are underway or planned, including: slug dissipation in downward sloping pipe, accumulation of water in pipeline dips, slug tracking for transient simulation, and oil-water and gas-oil-water flow patterns and flow behavior in near-horizontal pipelines.
