MDE and IDES Student Blog
This blog was created to continue our mission of creating community. To bring together students interested in the same industry, to bring together the engineering community so they can learn about who we are, and for prospective students to understand that if they feel they don’t conform to an engineering discipline, that there is a home for them. Our doors are open, and we hope to see you in the NEST soon!
We are home to two very different kinds of engineering:
- Multidisciplinary Engineering (MDE)
- Interdisciplinary Engineering Studies (IDES)
Here in the MDE/IDES degree program, there is no ‘standard’ engineering student. We give rise to new and developing fields, ones that expand the breadth and knowledge of engineering to beyond the discipline itself. From Acoustical to Humanitarian to Global Defense, our school houses the engineers of the future. Our degrees don’t conform to the typical student’s degree. Students take classes across disciplines and go on to contribute to valuable areas of the workforce, attend top tier graduate programs, and even progress into professional schools. In MDE/IDES, students are encouraged to make a difference in the world and to apply engineering everywhere they go.We are innovators, creators, self-starters. We are determined and adaptable. We are the future of engineering, today!
