Interdisciplinary Engineering Programs

http://www.uvm.edu/~cems/

CEMS offers three Interdisciplinary Engineering Programs: a Bachelor of Arts in Engineering, a Bachelor of Science in Engineering and a Bachelor of Science in Engineering Management. These programs are not ABET-accredited, nor are they designed to be. They are flexible, cross-disciplinary degrees that allow students to study engineering alongside the liberal arts, sciences and/or business administration. The Interdisciplinary Engineering Programs are collaboratively overseen by the Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering, the Department of Electrical & Biomedical Engineering and the Department of Mechanical Engineering. More information is available within the individual program sections of this catalogue.

Regulations

Students pursuing any of the Interdisciplinary Engineering Programs (BA Engineering, BS Engineering or BS Engineering Management) are subject to the Academic Standards in CEMS outlined in this catalogue.

ADDITIONAL REGULATIONS

Students may apply no more than three credits graded D, D+ or D- in any engineering (BME, CE, EE, ENGR or ME) course toward the degree.
