This program offers students the opportunity to develop systems thinking skills and to study in emerging and interdisciplinary fields of engineering, including bioengineering, environment & energy, and robotics. Students that successfully complete the program will graduate with a B.S. degree in Integrative Engineering.

Modern socio-technical issues and challenges increasingly require complex solutions that often bridge the traditional disciplinary boundaries of engineering and connect to other fields across the humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences. The Integrative Engineering (IntE) program enables students to apply their foundational knowledge in systems methods to an interdisciplinary area of focus at the intersection of traditional engineering disciplines. Graduates will be distinguished by their broad understanding of design and systems thinking and by their ability to communicate across engineering disciplines and related fields of science.

Students in this program are required to have a focus area in Bioengineering, Environment & Energy, or Robotics.
