Mechanical, Operations & Systems Engineering Program Area
The Mechanical, Operations & Systems Engineering (MOSE) Program Area leverages fundamental principles of physics, economics, human behavior and advanced computing to educate and innovate in a wide array of application domains — ranging from fluid and thermal systems, climate change, energy and infrastructure, to healthcare, cybersecurity and information systems.
MOSE Program Area Lead: Vikrant Vaze
The Student Experience
As part of the MOSE Program Area, students receive individualized guidance within a stimulating and accessible intellectual community. We strive to help students develop communication skills and abilities as both collaborators and independent researchers and innovators.
Students are expected to propose a plan of study that supports their interests, potentially including distinctive intellectual paths unconstrained by disciplinary boundaries and enriched by collaborative synergies.
Our graduates are prepared for top positions in either industry or academia, or, with our emphasis on entrepreneurship, to launch a tech startup of their own.
- Cybersecurity and information systems
- Energy systems and infrastructure
- Engineered systems for extreme and changing environments
- Fluid mechanics and thermal systems
- Operations analysis and management
- Systems modeling and optimization
Dartmouth Engineering Receives $1.25M to Study Space Ice
A Dartmouth ice mechanics lab has been awarded two grants totaling $1.25 million to conduct planetary science research relating to the geophysics and astrobiology of icy planets in our solar system.
Students in the MOSE Program Area need not limit their academic interests. Many students and faculty move comfortably between traditional disciplines, working at the intersection of MOSE and biomedical, biochemical, electrical and computer, and materials engineering.
Our flexible curriculum allows for a wide range of academic paths which students develop with guidance from their advisor to meet individual needs.
