Interdisciplinary Programs (IDEAS)
Follow an approved curriculum or propose your own
Through IDEAS: Interdisciplinary Engineering & Applied Science, undergraduates use approved curricula, or propose their own, to create specialized Bachelor of Science in Engineering (BSE) degrees.
To participate, engineering students (in consultation with an independent-study advisor and appropriate faculty members) propose combinations of courses designed to meet their interests and career objectives.
- IDEAS curricula are not specifically accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, but do satisfy the national general engineering accreditation criteria
- A student’s independent-study advisor need not also be the student’s academic advisor
- Duke rules for credit for Advanced Placement (AP) and International Placement apply
