IDE has been through several name changes. GEEN comes from our original name. Our prefix will be changing to IDEN in Fall of 2023. Because many folks use our courses, we are giving our partners time to update their catalogs and language.
All Students in IDE are required to complete:
GEEN 1400: First-Year Projects
GEEN 2400: Engineering for the Community
GEEN 3400: Invention and Innovation
But, not all IDE students will take all the other IDE Core Courses. Check your emphasis for your core course list.
IDE Students have the opportunity to take hands-on, design-based versions of the traditional courses offered through various CEAS departments.
Both versions of these courses cover the same material, but IDE versions are taught by our faculty and include hands-on design, where students get to put theory into practice and learn by doing.
Through these unique classroom experiences, students gain valuable engineering skills including:
understanding of the engineering design process
experience with a variety of computer tools such as spreadsheets, dynamic modeling software, computer-aided design (CAD), etc.
