Fluid Mechanics and Fluid Dynamics


Each student develops, in consultation with his/her advisory committee, a specific program of study and research that is consistent with the individual’s background, interests and goals. Typical programs are listed below. The PhD sample program assumes completion of a M.S. degree at Colorado State University with the same area of emphasis.
