|Welcome to CASE|
CASE, the Curriculum in Applied Sciences and Engineering, is a strategic new initiative in the College of Arts & Science designed to foster cutting- edge interdisciplinary research in the sciences, and to deliver curricula preparing students for that research. Students joining CASE will gain the knowledge needed to be at the forefront of the next technology revolution, and will develop the leadership skills required to create their own research teams and companies. CASE students will be educated to address pressing technical problems confronting the world in areas such as alternative energy, nanomedicine, cyber security, and environmental preservation. They will learn to balance theory and experiment in fundamental and applied sciences, within a unique environment of learning and exploration.
NOTE: Starting in July 2013, the Biomedical Engineering department will administer the undergraduate BME program. The undergraduate tracks in Computer Engineering and Materials Science willbe phased out.
CASE has delineated a set of math and science foundation courses for the first two years of undergraduate study so that focus-area and degree-programs may be selected after students have a better understanding of career paths. Elective courses can be tailored to each applicant’s needs and interests. And, it is possible to minor in entrepreneurship as well.
