The School of Engineering offers a program in General Interdisciplinary Engineering leading to the degree of Bachelor of Science in Engineering (B.S.E.). This program is designed for students whose career plans and interest call for a more flexible and interdisciplinary approach than is possible under the B.E. programs. As such, it is intended for those students who wish a broad yet sound education in engineering enabling them to work in interdisciplinary areas; or who prefer to delay their specialization in a given area of engineering until after graduation; or who desire a strong broad-based engineering background as preparation for further studies in engineering or in such other professions as medicine, law or business administration.
This program is administered by an interdepartmental committee under the chairmanship of Professor Toby Cumberbatch. Less than 10 percent of the engineering undergraduates currently undertake this program, which is not accredited. The Albert Nerken School of Engineering has suspended the admission of any additional students to this program after the Fall 2012 semester.
