Bachelor of Science in Engineering - Interdisciplinary Engineering

Interdisciplinary engineering provides an opportunity for students whose interests and talents, while oriented toward engineering and science, do not coincide with the plans of study previously outlined in this section. Interdisciplinary engineering does not have a designated professional curriculum, but it is constituted to accommodate a degree objective with broad flexibility and opportunity for interdisciplinary studies. 

Students cooperate with their faculty advisors to develop a personalized plan of study leading to the Bachelor of Science in Engineering (B.S.E.) degree with interdisciplinary engineering identified as the major field of study. Each customized plan will include the following:

  • At least 32 credit hours of college level mathematics and basic sciences
  • At least 48 credit hours of engineering topics
  • At least 9 credit hours of general education that compliments the curriculum
  • A culminating major design experience

To get started in the Interdisciplinary Engineering program please contact an advisor in the Mechanical and Energy Engineering department.
