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, as well as engineering analysis and design. Students apply their foundational knowledge in systems methods to an interdisciplinary area of focus at the intersection of traditional engineering disciplines. The focus area gives students depth in engineering analysis and design and the ability to engage in professional practice or pursue graduate study. The three focus areas currently offered are:
