The integrative engineering program combines coursework in systems approaches and methods with the opportunity for focused study in an interdisciplinary area within engineering.
The program requires students to learn and apply the fundamental concepts that are present and applicable in all engineering disciplines and systems – concepts such as continuity, equilibrium, conservation of energy and momentum, and the engineering design process. Students will then apply their foundational knowledge in systems methods to an interdisciplinary area of focus at the intersection of traditional engineering disciplines. The thematic focus will give students experience in engineering system design and the ability to engage in professional practice or pursue graduate study. Thematic focus areas currently offered include:
