  1. I always thought that people get to know who they'll be researching under. But then again I'm a sophomore so I probably don't know much.
  2. congrats bro. who's going to be your supervisor here at U of I
  3. quick question people, how long do you think it would take to complete your PhD ?
  4. wait? there's something called a double masters ?
  5. nice. we're back at no. 1 congrats to guishediaz. scoring UCB is pretty damn big.
  6. interesting. I thought that FEA would have utility in construction, but as you said, maybe not. Thanks anyways. btw, if you don't mind me asking, you doin PhD ???
  7. Mate I hope you don't mind me askin, could you give us a look at your stats. And congrats for nailing the schools. It's really inspiring. cheers.
  8. I didn't know that, but then I'm an undergrad. All the rankings that I saw regarding CEE put MIT on no. 1 for PhD programs. I guess it's also because I would like to go into computational structural mechanics or Finite element analysis ( which of course is a bit on the mechanical side ) rather than geotetch, as you and a lot of others are. I just didn't really know that there were any 'structural' specific rankings out there.
  9. So the title is pretty self explanatory, but let me really explain what I'm trying to understand. As a prospective structural engineer, I wanted to know the difference between FEA and C.M. To be more specific, computational 'structural' mechanics, as opposed to comp. fluid mech. I have heard that FEA is fairly interdisciplinary, i.e. something that draws a lot from applied math and even computer science. So the question is - how is computational structural mechanics different. And is FEA really employed a lot in construction. I know that it's very useful in aerospace, but how about
  10. I'm kinda taken aback by the stanford results. Not to say it's not a good school ( of course not ) but I have heard some not so appreciable things about their MS programs ( cough cash cows cough ). And I'm not surprised by Caltech at all, they are pretty.......what's the technical term ....... badass.
  11. congrats to structeng. that's inspiring man, it really is. I'm gonna assume that it's between MIT and Berkeley ( or maybe not ). What's gonna be your concentration. cheers
  12. more reasons to research then i guess
  13. Well I guess the title really says it all. I'm an undergrad at the moment, just scored research position for next semester with a prof. Like a lot of other kids I've seen a lot written about 'doing research as an undergrad' in order to have a better chance of getting in to good Masters/phd programs. Let me put it this way, is research really considered a 'game changer' as far as masters/Phd programs applications are concerned? I guess it's kinda hard for me think that a kid who, say had a 3.3 GPA and research (of course, in something that's related to your field) will be preferred ov
