Interdisciplinary Programs (IDEAS)

Through IDEAS: Interdisciplinary Engineering & Applied Science, undergraduates propose their own curricula, or use approved curricula, 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 unique combinations of courses designed to meet their career objectives.

Important Notes

Submit a Proposal

Students must submit proposals to the Engineering Faculty Council, through the Office of the Engineering Dean, for approval.

A proposal may be submitted as early as the second semester of the first year, but must be submitted before the senior year
