Overview

The Integrated Engineering Studies (MIES) program of Northwestern University enables undergraduates to develop an individualized engineering degree program to explore new connections between existing academic fields.

Engineering has traditionally been divided into sub-disciplines and organized within academic departments such as civil, mechanical, electrical engineering, chemical engineering, and others.

As organizational structures and names evolve to reflect new ideas and disciplines, the boundaries between sub-disciplines in engineering, and between engineering and other fields of studies (e.g., medicine, chemistry, physics, economics, earth science, and others) become less rigid.

Career paths

Many career opportunities and advanced research efforts cross these boundaries and thus define new areas of application and study. Increasingly, key advances in both engineering science and its applications occur at or beyond traditional boundaries, at the intersections between engineering fields, and between engineering and other areas of expertise.
