Integrative Engineering

Program Chair

Associate Professor Yu (Acting Chair, Spring Semester)


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 Integrative Engineering (IntE) program enables students to apply their foundational knowledge in systems methods to an interdisciplinary area of focus at the intersection of traditional engineering disciplines. 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 this program are required to have a thematic focus in Bioengineering, Environment & Energy, or Robotics.
