Interdisciplinary Engineering

Our Program

The Interdisciplinary Master of Science (MSE/MS) degree puts you in the lead to tailor your education experience to your individual or company goals and current marketplace demands. The flexibility of our online interdisciplinary master’s degree enables you to create a customized educational experience like no other. The degree is ideal for professional engineers looking to explore knowledge in a discipline different from their undergraduate studies.

Degree Options

The 30-credit hour curriculum offers specializations in the several different disciplines, including the largely popular Biomedical Engineering, Dual MSE-MBA, and Engineering Management and Leadership concentrations.

Online Plan of Study Details

The MSE/MS master’s program offers a wide range of flexibility in course options. After you begin your studies at Purdue, an academic advisor will help you create a Plan of Study (POS) to best fit your educational needs. In addition, we can work with you to define an area of specialization within the online Master of Science (MSE/MS) degree program tailored to align with your specific career goals and interests. Every POS varies based on student interest, time, and course load. For planning purposes, an example POS for the Interdisciplinary Master of Science in Engineering (MSE/MS) with a concentration in Biomedical Engineering degree is available, as well as an extensive course menu that lists classes available over the next several years.

The flexible nature of our programs makes it possible for you to take time off from your studies if you need to. The majority of students choose to begin their studies by taking one course at a time to ensure they find a successful balance of work, life, and school.
