Fluids Engineering Track

The Fluids Engineering track prepares the student for theoretical and computational analysis of flow physics in engineering systems. Technical electives offer the student the opportunity to develop new skills in computational analysis of transport phenomena and broaden their understanding of the role fluid mechanics play in other related fields, such as heat transfer and combustion.
