Jacobs School Offers New Professional Degree Programs for Engineers
San Diego, CA, June 27, 2011 -- Beginning this fall, the UC San Diego Jacobs School of Engineering will offer two new interdisciplinary Master of Advanced Study (MAS) programs. Both will provide technical executive education for engineering professionals. These high quality master degree programs are closely aligned with Jacobs School of Engineering faculty research strengths as well as industry workforce needs. Training focuses on industry-specific application areas that are not available through traditional master degree programs.

Wireless Embedded Systems
|Wireless Embedded Systems|
The Wireless Embedded Systems program provides training for professional engineers who plan to become technical leaders in embedded wireless technology. In the near future, wireless embedded systems will connect everyday devices to each other and to larger systems in nearly every market sector, including medical devices, personal electronics, transportation infrastructure and manufacturing. The unique design requirements of these next generation embedded wireless devices dictate a holistic design approach. Their form factor, cost, and power consumption must be dramatically lower than existing cellular phones. To meet these design requirements, the Wireless Embedded Systems program offers a unique interdisciplinary background in systems, software, hardware and communication theory.

The Jacobs School of Engineering is also in the process of developing the following Master of Advanced Study programs.
The Simulation-Based Engineering program prepares graduates to solve multi-physics engineering problems using the techniques of modern computational analysis. Employing computer simulation techniques to study and predict physical events and the behavior of engineered systems promises to revolutionize the way engineering and science are conducted in the 21st century. The program offers a mix of cutting-edge computational mechanics theory and practice. Graduates will have the tools to solve engineering problems of interest and importance to industry and national laboratories. This is currently the only professionally geared master degree program in simulation-based engineering offered in the United States.

Structural Health Monitoring
|Structural Health Monitoring|
The Structural Health Monitoring program prepares engineers to lead in the fields of structural health monitoring and prognosis. Graduates gain expertise in the key technology areas needed for structural damage detection and prediction. This approach is crucial for optimal life-cycle management of the structure from design to retirement, including minimizing maintenance and operation costs, and maximizing performance. The systems-level approach of the Structural Health Monitoring program ensures that graduates’ technical expertise can be applied to practically any aerospace, civil, or mechanical structural component or system.
