Clusters in Interdisciplinary Approaches to Science and Engineering
First-year students are invited to take part in the symposia, work groups, and colloquia offered by all of the clusters to see what may interest them later in their career. At the end of their first year, students may apply to a cluster.
Classes specifically designed for the clusters will complement the electives offered by departments. There will also be cluster specific project requirements, though these will usually be tied to departmental projects. Students must fulfill all the requirements of their doctoral program, but in addition are credentialized in the topical area of the cluster.
