About the Program
The interdisciplinary engineering option provides an opportunity for students whose interests and talents, while oriented toward engineering and science, do not coincide with the plans of study of the traditional engineering disciplines and who do not need an ABET-accredited degree. It provides an excellent undergraduate foundation for graduate school in non-engineering fields such as management, medicine, and law, or to begin careers that may lead to administrative or management positions in technological, engineering, or manufacturing operations. The program also prepares students for careers in large non-technological organizations such as financial institutions, which may require skills generally associated with both engineering and business. The program provides opportunities to tailor the large number of technical electives to the students’ particular needs. The program is not ABET accredited.
