Starfleet Advanced Engineering School

For exceptional engineers the School of Engineering provides programs designed to teach advanced techniques in a variety of subjects, from advanced warp drive mechanics to theoretical transporter design.

Admission requires a high score in the School of Engineering entrance examination and an approved project proposal. The program is open to majors in Material, Propulsion, or Systems Engineering. and to Starfleet officers who obtain their supervisor's recommendations.

Students participate in intensive courses in the mornings and self-directed study in the afternoons. Each student selects a theoretical area in which to develop a project, required for completion of the program. The curriculum is tailored to each individual based on his field of study. Specialists in warp field dynamics study advanced subspace principles and interact with designers from the Starfleet Advanced Propulsion Laboratories, while power system engineers construct their own reaction system and investigate potential regenerative power sources.

The Starfleet School of Engineering campus includes the Daystrom Building and Science Annex, the Daystrom Building and Science Annex, the Montgomery Scott Engineering Building, and the Cochrane Laboratories. Students also use facilities at the Starfleet Science Institute located nearby.

ARES-A 503. Quantum Microscopy Techniques

Introduction to scanning and transmission quantum microscopy. Course covers particle sources, wave guidance, and image formation and interpretation, including secondary and backscattered quantums, inverse fields, and high-resolution images. Course also covers quantum diffraction and analytical techniques such as microanalysis and quantum energy loss spectroscopy. Course prepares students to understand all quantum-level physics and scanning techniques and theoretical applications.

ARES-A 560. Advanced Propulsion Engineering and Design

Advanced issues in propulsion engineering and science: nuclear reactions, radioactive decay, neutron diffusion, kinetics, quantum spectral diffusion, ion discharge, antimatter reactions, impulse streams, energy removal, shielding, health physics, and system design. Physical and mathematical description of production, utilization, and loss of plasma in reactors and other systems. Includes laboratory work.

ARES-A 714. Subspace Field Theory

Advanced discussion of subspace laws, field dynamics, and stabilization patterns. Course also covers subspace probabilities, folding space, subspace tearing, quantum subspace harmonics, field design, and field integrity. Students measure and classify subspace phenomena and generate their own subspace field in laboratory assignments, observing flow dynamics. Completion requires successful field generation and analysis.
