What is the Scieneering Program?

A novel and innovative program focused on interdisciplinary undergraduate studies and research at the intersection of Science, Engineering and Law, Scieneering builds on VT’s strengths in science and engineering and through funding from a prestigious Howard Hughes Medical Institute Science Education Grant.

Science and engineering sophomores and juniors enrolled in Scieneering participate in coursework leading to minors in Interdisciplinary Engineering and Science or Science, Engineering and Law and conduct at least three credit-hours of interdisciplinary research mentored by faculty outside their major discipline. Students gain experience tackling real-world, multi-dimensional problems under the direction of a qualified mentor.

If you are interested in getting involved in undergraduate research, other opportunities can be found on the Office for Undergraduate Research website.
