Learning, Discovery, and Engagement at the Intersections of Science, Engineering, and the Law
What is the Scieneering Program?
Building on VT’s strengths in science and engineering, the Office of Undergraduate Research,
through funding from a prestigious Howard Hughes Medical Institute Science Education Grant, offers a novel and innovative
new program focused on interdisciplinary undergraduate studies and research, aptly named Scieneering.
Science and engineering sophomores and juniors selected to become Scieneers participate in coursework leading
to minors in Interdisciplinary Engineering and Science or Science, Engineering and Law and conduct at least 3 credit-
hours of interdisciplinary research mentored by faculty outside their major discipline. This is a great opportunity for
students to gain experience tackling real-world, multi-dimensional problems under the direction of a qualified mentor.
Scieneers receive a stipend and funds to purchase supplies pertinent to their selected research project.
If you are interested in getting involved in undergraduate research, other opportunities can be found at the
Office for Undergraduate Research website.
