Interdisciplinary Engineering Program

The Interdisciplinary Engineering Program (IDE) is for the student whose interests and abilities lie at the interface between engineering disciplines, or between engineering and other disciplines, and who is unable to accommodate his/her total range of interests and abilities satisfactorily in one of the traditional engineering discliplines.

Features of the IDE program include:

  • Flexible Plan of Study that can be tailored to include its own title and selection of courses
  • Limited enrollment (fewer than 100 total students) so the program remains counseling-intensive
  • Bachelor of Science in Engineering (BSE) or Bachelor of Science (BS) degree
