Interdisciplinary Engineering

Earning a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Interdisciplinary Engineering (ITDE) allows students to develop unique skill sets and specialize in areas that may not be provided in a traditional department degree program. Such specializations may be driven by emerging technical fields or by a student’s desire to have an immersive interdisciplinary experience. ITDE students graduate with a specific set of skills resulting from a unique program of study.

The B.S. in ITDE is comprised of 66 credit hours of standard components and 62 credit hours of interdisciplinary specialization. The 66 standard credits include:

  • common first-year engineering courses

  • engineering ethics

  • an English/communication course

  • two semesters of senior capstone design

  • three additional math courses beyond first-year courses (from an approved list)

  • 18 credits of undergraduate core curriculum.

The 62 remaining credits of specialization may either be determined through a pre-approved program of study or through a student-led design with approval from the ITDE Advisory Committee.
