2 South Dakota Board of Regents Intent to Plan for a Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering Use this form to request authorization to plan a new baccalaureate major, a new associate degree program, or a new graduate program. The Executive Director or the Board may request additional information. UNIVERSITY: South Dakota School of Mines and Technology DEGREE(S) AND TITLE OF PROGRAM: Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering INTENDED DATE OF IMPLEMENTATION: Fall 2009 University Approval To the Board and the Executive Director: I certify that I have read this intent to plan, that I believe it to be accurate, and that it has been evaluated and approved as provided by university policy. President of the University Date After approval by the President, a signed copy of the proposal should be transmitted to the Executive Director. Only after Executive Director review should the proposal be posted on the university web site and the Board staff and the other universities notified of the URL. 1. What is the general nature of the proposed program? What is the expected demand for graduates in South Dakota? What is the need for the proposed program? The proposed program will be a PhD program in mechanical engineering with a focus on driving engineering design and innovation through research. Currently, no mechanical engineering PhD exists in the state. Therefore, the proposed program will create an opportunity for local, regional, and statewide students to obtain a terminal degree in this highly versatile area of study. Furthermore, this new PhD will put the state in a more competitive position for recruiting graduate students across the nation and world. Nationwide, demand for PhDs in mechanical engineering has held steady over the last decade (i.e., approximately 900 per year) and is expected to remain steady. The program will open up new opportunities to recruit high-quality graduate students, expand research funding, attract top-level faculty members, and support a sustained regional economic development effort over the long term. High tech manufacturing is cited by the Black Hills Vision/Battelle report as one of the potential growth areas for the Black Hills region and South Dakota, and mechanical engineering expertise is the basis of many entrepreneurial initiatives because of its very wide range of applicability. Mechanical Engineers are involved most technology-oriented small business innovations, research, and development within the state. Goal 2A 1 of the Governor s 2010 Initiative calls for the creation and development of new businesses, with a particular emphasis on entrepreneurship. 1 Goal 2A: Promote the creation and development of new businesses (http://www.2010initiative.com) AAC_4.D.1_i2p_SDSMT_PhD_mech_eng Page 2 of 11

3 Goal 2C 2 of the Initiative would require the promotion and development of the state s natural resources. The education and training enabled by the proposed PhD program will engender new entrepreneurship within the state, and quickly carry the state toward the fulfillment of its goal of becoming a net energy exporter through, for instance, wind energy development. Furthermore, simply by virtue of its scientific and technological content and character, the program will directly contribute to Goals 3B and 3C 3 of the Governor s Initiative, by attracting new NSF funding as well as by building new research capacity and infrastructure at the interface of academics and industry. Finally, the program clearly supports Goal 3, Objective 3C 4 of the Governor s 2010 Educational Initiative by building graduate program capacity in the state. The proposed program will support, and will be supported by, the newly created Pearson Endowed Professorship/Chair in Sustainable Energy Systems and strengthen the research agenda in sustainable energy for the state. In addition, the ME department was recently strengthened by the arrival of our former Dean of Engineering, who will be assuming full faculty responsibilities beginning Fall Finally, in 2007, the faculty membership increased when the then Dean of Systems Engineering returned to the department on a full-time basis. Therefore, over the last two years, the department has increased its full-time faculty FTE s by two and is in the process of initiating a search for another position, the Pearson endowed Professorship/Chair. On the research funding front, the department has seen a rapid growth in our research funding over the past 5 years, and is now at a point where the available funding exceeds the demand for graduate research assistantships among our current and expected MS degree candidates. This research funding has also led to a considerable improvement in our laboratory facilities and research equipment. Given the above combination of favorable factors along with the program s synergistic connection to the Governor s 2010 Initiatives, the time is right to move forward on the development of this new PhD in mechanical engineering. With the redirection of resources (two former deans now mechanical engineering faculty members) and the non-state budget increase (Pearson endowed professorship) the proposal draws on no new resources from the state. 2 Promote agricultural and natural resource development in South Dakota Become a net energy exporter Ethanol Biodiesel fuel Wind energy 3 3B Improve ranking to at least 30 th nationally for NSF funding 3C Develop research and technology infrastructure at our universities and with private sector (emphasize research that can be commercialized and will benefit South Dakota). 4 Specifically, initiatives (a) and (b): (a) Double the number of PhD programs, (b) Double the number of PhD graduates (http://www.2010education.com) 04-09AAC_4.D.1_i2p_SDSMT_PhD_mech_eng Page 3 of 11

4 2. What is the relationship of the proposed program to the University s mission as provided in South Dakota statute and Board of Regents Policy? South Dakota School of Mines & Technology, SDCL The South Dakota School of Mines & Technology, formerly the State School of Mines, located at Rapid City, in Pennington county, shall be under the control of the Board of Regents and shall provide undergraduate and graduate programs of instruction in engineering and the natural sciences and other courses or programs as the Board of Regents may determine. The Mission of SDSM&T is as follows: The South Dakota School of Mines and Technology serves the people of South Dakota as their technological university. Its mission is to provide a well-rounded education that prepares students for leadership roles in engineering and science; to advance the state of knowledge and application of this knowledge through research and scholarship; and to benefit the state, regions, and nation through collaborative efforts in education and economic development. The proposed program will support the mission of the university by expanding research funding, by accelerating and maintaining economic development in the Black Hills region and the state as a whole, and by attracting high quality students and faculty to the university. 3. Are there any related programs in the regental system? If there are related programs, why should the proposed program be added? If there are no related programs within the system, enter None. None. 4. Are there related programs at public colleges and universities in Minnesota, North Dakota, Montana, and Wyoming? 5 If there are related programs in these states list below under each state and explain why the proposed program is needed in South Dakota. If there are no related programs in a state, enter None for that state. Minnesota: University of Minnesota, Twin Cities: PhD in Mechanical Engineering North Dakota: North Dakota State University: PhD in Mechanical Engineering and Applied Mechanics Montana: None Wyoming: University of Wyoming, Laramie: PhD in Mechanical Engineering 5 This question addresses opportunities available through Minnesota Reciprocity and the Western Undergraduate Exchange in adjacent states. List only programs at the same degree level as the proposed program. For example, if the proposed program is a baccalaureate major, then list only related baccalaureate majors in the other states and do not include associate or graduate programs AAC_4.D.1_i2p_SDSMT_PhD_mech_eng Page 4 of 11

5 5. Are students expected to be new to the university or redirected from other programs? How many majors are expected in the first years of the program? How many graduates are expected? Over 50% of the student population is expected to be new to the university and a lesser percentage will be comprised of students returning after completion of their bachelor s in mechanical engineering or a closely related field. Additionally, the program will help to retain master s-level students, who would otherwise need to move to another university to pursue a doctoral degree in mechanical engineering. Five to seven students are expected to be enrolled in the program in its first year, with the overall number growing at the rate of 2 or 3 per year until steady state is reached in the range of 10 to 15 students. After the fourth year of the program, roughly three to five students are expected to graduate each year with a PhD. 6. Does the university intend to seek authorization to deliver this entire program at any off-campus locations? If yes, enter location(s) and intended start date(s). Does the university intend to seek authorization to deliver this entire program by distance technology? If yes, identify delivery method(s) and intended start date(s). Off-campus Distance delivery No No 7. What are the University s plans for obtaining the resources needed to implement the program? Indicate yes or no in the columns below. Development/Start-up Long-term Operation Reallocate existing resources No No Apply for external resources Yes; research proposals Yes; research proposals Ask Board to seek new State resources No No Ask Board to approve new or increased student fee No No As noted under item (1), increased research funding over the past few years (which brings with it greater available support for graduate students and research equipment), the program could successfully be implemented without new resources from the state, and without straining current resources. 8. Curriculum Example: Provide (as Appendix A) the curriculum of a similar program at another college or university. The Appendix should provide the required and elective courses in the program. Catalog pages or web materials may be used. Identify the college or university and explain why the program may be used as one model when the proposed program is developed. Information about the University of Minnesota Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering is provided in Appendix A. This is an internationally recognized and well established program with strengths 04-09AAC_4.D.1_i2p_SDSMT_PhD_mech_eng Page 5 of 11

7 Appendix A University of Minnesota PhD in Mechanical Engineering This appendix provides an overview of the mechanical engineering PhD program at the University of Minnesota (U of M) and points out features that we would like to consider in our planning process. While we would like to replicate some of these features in our program, we realize that our program must adequately reflect our state s/school s needs and expertise. In particular, our goal will be to offer a similar degree of flexibility in course selection in the student s concentration area while providing a balance between depth and breadth. As noted below, the U of M program includes significant coursework in a minor field of study, taken while the student is pursuing research and coursework in a chosen area of concentration. One aspect in which our program will differ from the U of M program will be in the total number of credits required for graduation. We will require 80 credits for graduation, consistent with the School of Mines graduate study requirements. Specifically, our program will include a minimum of 50 course credits (including 12 in a minor area or areas) and 30 research/dissertation credits beyond a Bachelor s degree. Detailed information on the U of M program may be accessed through the following web links. University of Minnesota Mechanical Engineering Department Graduate Student Handbook University of Minnesota Graduate School Catalog: The following description is excerpted from the University of Minnesota graduate catalog and provides a brief overview of the PhD curriculum and degree requirements: Graduate students in the Mechanical Engineering Department pursue a program of study which embodies two major ingredients: 1. A disciplinary focus to amplify your knowledge in a specific area of technical expertise. 2. A dimension of technical literacy beyond the disciplinary focus to equip yourself with breadth of perspective to enable adaptation to future engineering challenges and technological change. Achieve technical literacy through the following types of course selections: Those offered within the Department but beyond the main concentration of your study. Those taken outside the Department with sufficient uniqueness to stand the test of breadth AAC_4.D.1_i2p_SDSMT_PhD_mech_eng Page 7 of 11

8 Technical courses which emphasize micro-scale phenomena in such areas as materials, electronics, chemistry, and physics. Graduate-level courses in Mathematics or Numerical Methods (at least one). Whereas no formal credit count is stated for the doctoral degree in the Graduate School Catalog (other than the 12 credits required in the supporting program or minor), the Mechanical Engineering Department observes a nominal minimum standard between 44 and 50 semester credits including master s course credits as a hallmark of adequate course study. Students completing a doctoral degree are required to enroll for 24 doctoral thesis credits (ME 8888) before receiving a degree (students can register for a maximum of 18 in one semester). Doctoral students may not register for thesis credits until the semester after they have passed their preliminary oral examinations (see the Preliminary Oral Examinations section). Course Suggestions The following is a listing of suggested courses for graduate students in Mechanical Engineering. These suggestions are divided into different topic areas that reflect common areas of research. The listing is not an exhaustive one and is provided only as a general suggestion. Each student should consult with his or her thesis advisor before registering for courses.
