About this Program

The Bachelor of Science in Integrated Engineering is a novel and unique engineering educational program. Iron Range Engineering is offered in the iron range region of northeast Minnesota (Virginia, MN) and Twin Cities Engineering is offered in the Twin Cities metro area (Bloomington, MN) in the 3rd and 4th year of the undergraduate engineering program. Students transfer into the Bachelor of Science in Engineering program after two years of pre-engineering work elsewhere.
Students learn traditional engineering knowledge and skills in a project-based learning environment. The Iron Range Engineering (IRE) educational model is a project-based-learning model in which students work with industry and others on real-life design projects with a focus on producing graduates with integrated technical/professional knowledge and competencies. Learning is done in the context of the design projects.
The IRE educational model emphasizes innovation, creativity, design, experimental techniques, modeling techniques with an ultimate goal regional economic development in the Iron Range region. The B.S. in Integrated Engineering program allows students to tailor their education to emphasize different engineering fields. Successful completion of the program culminates in the Bachelor of Science in Engineering (BSE).
Graduates of the Minnesota State Mankato B.S. in Integrated Engineering Program will achieve at least 2 of the following program educational objectives, but will be capable of achieving all within one to four years of graduation:
� Designing, implementing and integrating thermal, electrical, mechanical and computer-controlled systems, components, and processes that will serve the region, the nation and the world;
� Continuing their education through technical or professional graduate programs, professional licensure, or certifications, and the wide variety of other types of life-long learning.
