This program is designed for students who wish to obtain an engineering background as a foundation for a wide range of careers, such as medicine, law, public policy, visual arts, or engineering studies in materials, ethics, or history.  Coursework in this track should integrate engineering courses in a coherent manner with the topic of interest to the student.  The track is designed to be rigorous, yet allow for a wide degree of flexibility in the course of studies.

All students in Engineering and the Liberal Arts must acquire a strong background in mathematics and the basic sciences (8 courses), followed by courses in Engineering Sciences that stress design and analytical methods in Civil and Environmental Engineering (a minimum of 6 courses).
The program electives should form a coherent sequence of courses in the student’s area of interest, and Junior Independent Research is strongly recommended as a program elective.  This is followed by the Senior Thesis.  In the Junior Independent Research and Senior Thesis students should relate their topics of interesst to engineering problems.
