f the University Facul


Professional Degrees in Engineering. The professional degrees of

Civil Engineer {5.3.}, Electrical Engineer (E.E.), Mechanical Engineer
(M,E,), Metallurigical Engineer (Met.E.), and Mining Engineer (:.N.)
will be granted to graduates of the UniVorsity of {entucky, College

of Engineering, who nresont satisfactory evidence of professional
work of creditable quality in the engineering fields of their choice,
extending over a period of five years, and who submit satisfactory
theses as further evidence of their professional attainment.

shall be
considered to have fulfilled two years of the five-year reg"irement
for the correSponding professional degree.

A candidate holding a master's degree in engineering

An application for the degree must be made to the Dean of the
Graduate School and haVe the approval of the director of graduate study
in his engineering field not less than one academic year before the
degree may be granted.

The director of graduate study and two other members recommended
by him and anpointed by the Dean of the Graduate School will pass
on the qualifications of each applicant. This committee may require
an oral or an oral and a written examination. The applicant is ex~
pected to submit a record of his engineering experience, which should
include a complete list of his professional engagements, showing in
each case the length of time employed and the position held. He
should give for references the names of at least three persons who
are familiar with his engineering work. Preferably these persons

should be connected with the organization by which he has been employed.

A thesis is required of each candidate. It may be in the field of
research, design, invention or engineering processes and methods. It
must contain some original thought and, of courSe, be the work of the
individual submitting it. In general, the thesis should be of such
a nature that it will be of value to the engineering profession. The
physical form of the thesis shall be in harmony with the requirements
for other graduate theses.

A candidate holding a bachelor's degree in one field of engineering
may apply for this professional degree in another field of engineering
if he has attained unusual prominence and success in that field.

The fee for this profeSsional degree in engineering is $15.00 for
registration and $20.00 for graduation.

The Degree of Doctor of Philosophy. The degree of Doctor of Philo—
sophy is conferred upon a candidate who, after completing not less
than three years of graduate work devoted to study of a special field
of knowledge, presents a satisfactory dissertation, demonstrates in a
comprehensive examination a broad and penetrating knowledge of his dis~
sertation subject and his chosen field, and is deemed worthy of recog—
nition as a scholar of high attainment.

The doctor‘s degree is intended to represent, not a specified amount
of work COVQring a specified time, but the attainment, through long
study, of independent and comprehensive scholarship in a special field.
Such scholarship should be evidencdlboth by the student's grasp of
subject matter and by his capacity to do research.

For information about being admitted as an apvl’ ant for a graduate


degree, see the section entitled "Ayplication for Full Graduate Standing".

Major and Minor Subjects

Every applicant for the degree must select one major area of study and

no more than two minor subjects, at least one of which must be outside the

major area.

Although the regulations are somewhat elastic resoecting tie time

Any regular graduate course may be assigned as part of the appli-
cant's work by his Special committee. Courses in the graduate bullew
tin are considered to be of graduate status. The Humier and extent
of such courses are determined by the special committee.


A minimum of three collegiate years of resident gredue e wort, of
which at least the last year in residence must be spent at the Jniver—
sity of Kentucky, is required for the doctorate. Candidates may be
given leaves of absen e by their Special committees (not to exceed
one-fourth of the last year of required residence) to make use of
superior facilities elsewhereo


Leaves consuming more than oneefourth
of the last year must be approved by the Graduate Council and will
not be allowed to candidates who have not spent at least one year

at the UniVQrsity already.

While it is expected that a wellaprepered student of good ability
may secure the degree upon completion of three years of full~time
study, it should be understood that this requirement is a minimum
and is wholly secondary to the matter of scholarship. Time spent
in studi, however long. the accumulation of facts, however great in
amount, and the completion of courses, however numerous, cannot be substi—
tuted for independent thinking and original research.

Language Requirement

The applicant must give evidence of having a good reading know~
ledge of at least two modern foreign languages. This yroficiency is
determined by examinations conducted by the resPective language
departments at the University of Kentucky. While ordinarily French
and German are preferred, the final choice should be made under the
guidance of the student's special committee, who will recommend what
languages are to count. In cases of students whose native tongues
are acceptable but which are not taught at the University, the Gradu~
ate Council may validate the languages on such evidence as it deems
sufficient. The language requirement must be satisfied before the
applicant may be admitted to the qualifying examination.
