Arctic Engineering Program Focus
The Arctic Engineering program requires completion of a set of that will core courses prepare an engineer to understand and adapt prior engineering knowledge and skills to problems of cold regions. The program also allows students to study advanced elective courses in a particular area of specialized interest. Research activities carried out by faculty of the UAA School of Engineering provide opportunities for project reports dealing with current Arctic knowledge. A graduate Advisory Committee composed of at least three members, the Chair, and one other member which must be UAA Arctic Engineering faculty, is appointed to guide each admitted student to degree completion.
