The Master of Advanced Study Degree is a technical executive education program catering to engineering professionals.
Structural health monitoring and prognosis (SHMAP) is the field of designing and executing damage detection, monitoring, and prediction strategy for a structural system.
Such a strategy is key for creating optimal life-cycle management of the structure from design to retirement, including minimizing maintenance and operation costs, and maximizing performance.
This Master's program introduces the student to the state-of-the-art in systems-level tools, approaches, and methods used in the SHMAP field with courses in:
|||structural dynamic/vibration modeling and analysis|
|||structural dynamic data acquisition and digital signal processing|
|||pattern recognition techniques for detecting damage signatures in structural data|
|||model/test correlation and validation and verification techniques|
|||predictive modeling for reliability-driven engineering|
|||non-destructive evaluation and structural health monitoring practical techniques|
The program graduate will be poised as a state-of-the-art leader in SHMAP in a systems-level way that can be applied to practically any aerospace, civil, or mechanical structural component or system.
|||Engage in state-of-the-art engineering that will lead to the development of next-generation technology|
|||Earn a masters degree from a world class institution and faculty in a unique, cross-disciplinary field|
|||Emerge a technical leader in engineering in a field that will enhance career experiences and help to prepare for future technical challenges|
|||High-quality technical program with interdisciplinary focus|
|||Courses taught by UCSD faculty experts|
|||Courses are planned to be simultaneously offered on campus and online|
|||9 courses, complete degree in 2 years|
|||Apply new technologies in capstone design project|
