Engineering BS

Program Chair

Professor Brandes


Modern socio-technical issues and challenges increasingly require complex solutions that bridge the traditional disciplinary boundaries of engineering and connect to many fields across the humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences. The BSE enables students to apply their foundational knowledge in systems methods to an interdisciplinary area of focus at the intersection of traditional engineering disciplines. BSE 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 the BSE program are required to have a thematic focus in Bioengineering, Environment & Energy, or Robotics.
