Fall 2011: Embedded Systems and Medical Devices
A pair of master's degree programs for mid-career engineers - Medical Device Engineering and Wireless Embedded Systems - launched in Fall 2011 at the Jacobs School. The two graduate programs focus on emerging interdisciplinary fields and industry-specific application areas that are not available through traditional master's degree programs. The programs joined the successful Architecture-Based Enterprise Systems Engineering (AESE) program. Rob Shanahan, from San Diego medical technologies company Cytori Therapeutics, is in the inaugural class of the Medical Device Engineering program. The coursework and interactions with top medical device innovators from UC San Diego have dovetailed with his job as director of product development, Shanahan said.

Fall 2012: On Campus and Online
The Jacobs School plans to launch two new graduate degree programs for engineering professionals in Fall 2012 - Simulation-Based Engineering and Structural Health Monitoring. Courses for the two MAS programs are planned to be simultaneously delivered on campus and online.

  • The Structural Health Monitoring program will provide working engineers with systems-level expertise in the field of designing and executing damage detection, monitoring and prediction strategies for structural systems.
  • The Simulation-Based Engineering program will prepare graduates to solve multi-physics engineering problems using the techniques of modern computational analysis.
