Humanitarian Engineering & Science: Interdisciplinary
This track allows students to create their own STEM specialization within the Humanitarian Engineering and Science program
An interdisciplinary track allows students more flexibility if the other HES tracks do not align with their background and interests while maintaining the standards for graduate performance. Students and their advisor will work together to choose courses from a variety of departments, as detailed in “required courses.”

Regardless of track, all HES graduate students take the required core EDNS courses.
