The Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degree in Interdisciplinary Engineering (ITDE) was initiated to accommodate outstanding engineering students whose research interests cross engineering disciplines and/or college lines. Examples of previously awarded interdisciplinary topics include environmental engineering and public policy; and engineering and education.
A student applying to the Ph.D. program in ITDE must be a current Ph.D. student in a department within the college of engineering. The ITDE program is administratively housed in the college of engineering (CLEN) under the leadership of the director of interdisciplinary engineering.
