Welcome to Interdisciplinary Engineering at GVSU
Over the past several years, there has been a rapidly increasing interaction between the traditional fields of engineering, as well as between engineering and other disciplines. Examples of this include biomedical engineering, mechatronics, environmental engineering, and industrial design. It has also become very common for students to complete an undergraduate program in engineering and then continue on to pursue graduate work and careers in fields such as medical device design and technology, patent law, medicine, robotics, and nanotechnology.
Students who wish to pursue careers in these increasingly diverse and interdisciplinary fields, or go onto graduate school, are best served by an undergraduate education somewhat different from that offered by traditional EE or ME programs. The Interdisciplinary Engineering degree is such a program that provides the student with the opportunity to define their own unique engineering expertise.
