About the Program
The Multidisciplinary Engineering program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET.
Multidisciplinary engineering is for students who plan to practice engineering as a career but whose specific career goals cannot be accommodated within one of the traditional engineering fields. The program offers considerable flexibility and permits you to choose from an established plan of study, or develop an individual plan of study to meet educational goals that can require bringing together multiple engineering disciplines, or non-engineering disciplines, at an advanced level to solve societal challenges. Established plans of study in the program include acoustical engineering, engineering management, visual design engineering, and general engineering, to name a few.

The ♦ course is considered critical.
In alignment with the Degree Map Guidance for Indiana’s Public Colleges and Universities, published by the Commission for Higher Education (pursuant to HEA 1348-2013), a Critical Course is identified as “one that a student must be able to pass to persist and succeed in a particular major. Students who want to be nurses, for example, should know that they are expected to be proficient in courses like biology in order to be successful. These would be identified by the institutions for each degree program”.
The student is ultimately responsible for knowing and completing all degree requirements.
