Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: All Programs

The Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in a student-designed area of concentration allows students to expand their intellectual opportunities by working with academic units and colleges for a cross-curricular collaborative program when no such program exists. A request by a student for a student-designed area of concentration must be approved by College Curriculum Committee of College of Engineering and Computer Science .

A proposal requesting permission to pursue a student-designed area of concentration must include the following: 1) a statement of the aims the student seeks to realize through the program; 2) a statement demonstrating that the existing programs of the College do not offer opportunities to achieve these aims; 3) an itemized list of the courses the student will seek to include in the program; and 4) an endorsement of the student’s plan from the faculty member or members who will serve as the student’s major advisor(s) in the program.

The Office of the Dean will provide guidance to students regarding preparation of the proposal.  Student interested in student-designed areas of concentration should be aware that these programs are not accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org.
