ESM program goes global

Abstract:
Virginia Tech is spreading its branches worldwide, with two collaborative doctoral programs that are the first of their kind on campus.

The department of engineering science and mechanics has recently established a collaborative program with the Politencnico di Milano in Milan, Italy, and is in the process of finalizing an agreement with Jadavpur University in Kolkata, India.

Ishwar Puri, professor and department head of ESM, hopes to implement a global strategy with both collaborative programs.

"The vision is that we perceive ESM as a center of scholarly activity in the area of engineering mechanics," Puri said.

The collaborative programs offer participating students a Virginia Tech doctoral degree in engineering mechanics. Aspects of this program include studies into nanotechnology, material science, fluid mechanics and other related research being conducted at Tech and partner universities.
