Interdisciplinary Programs (IDEAS)

The interdisciplinary option provides for special programs of study in such fields as biochemical engineering, energy conversion, engineering mechanics, materials science, ocean engineering, pollution control, systems and controls, and urban engineering, leading to the B.S.E. degree. Any student, in consultation with an adviser and appropriate faculty members, may propose a unique combination of courses designed to meet particular career objectives. The proposal (forms available in the Dean's Office, 305 Teer Building), must be submitted to the Engineering Faculty Council, through the Dean, for approval; it may be submitted as early as the second semester of the freshman year and must be submitted before the senior year. A detailed description of the proposal requirements is included in the Bulletin of Undergraduate Instruction.
