A unique multidisciplinary program in wind science and engineering for graduate studies leading to a doctoral degree has been developed. Students are required to take core courses in the disciplines of engineering, atmospheric sciences, and economics. In addition, they are required to fulfill a one-semester internship. Six courses in one field provide a degree of specialty. The four-year curriculum attracts students of diverse academic and social backgrounds. A specific plan of assessment of the program has been developed for improvement on a continuing basis. The program was implemented in the fall semester of 2003 and has 12 students pursuing doctoral degrees. With the goal of admitting 5 students each year after an on-campus interview, we hope to award 27 doctoral degrees by the eighth year of the program.
