About the Major


If you’re interested in educational and/or career goals and objectives that are not met specifically by one of the school’s traditional majors, the interdisciplinary engineering studies program may be an option for you.

This type of major is considered an individualized education plan and may involve educational experiences in more than one school or college of the University. Contracts that involve advanced or specialized courses from more than one college are considered cross-college contract programs and must have the explicit approval of both schools or colleges. You may have the opportunity to take courses within business and communications, for example. You will have an opportunity to follow the common first year and second year as other engineering programs do.

Degree Requirements

Core Classes

These courses are mapped out for your first two years in the program. Courses may include:

  • ES 143P | Engineering and Design
  • ES 115 | Engineering Computer Applications
  • ES 216 | Engineering Mechanics
  • ES 212 | Mechanics of Materials

Through this program, your first area of specialization will be in engineering, then you will have an opportunity to define a second area with a specific area of engineering based on your interests.

Additional Requirements

To pursue this unique program, you will need to write a letter of interest stating your career goals and objectives. Then you will work with the designee of the dean and specific faculty with experience in the fields you’re aspiring to work in to ensure the creation of a program of study leads to learning outcomes consistent with the mission of both the College and the University of Hartford.
