Graduate Program

Graduate study is offered in combustion technology at the UCI Combustion Laboratory at both the Master of Science (M.S.) and doctoral (Ph.D.) levels. The principal path for graduate study is through the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering. For information regarding application procedures, click on http://mae.eng.uci.edu/graduate/graduate.htm. During the application process, in the statement of purpose section, identify your interest in combustion technology, and identify Professor Scott Samuelsen as the contact with the program. Areas of specialization focus on the mechanistic behavior of practical, continuous combustion systems (e.g., boilers, furnaces, gas turbines) and include advanced design, smart combustion systems with advanced active control, fuel properties, and fuel air mixing behavior. Research tools include experimental methods using state of the art test facilities, advanced laser diagnostics, computation fluid dynamics, and design of experiments.
