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 
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. 

If you are interested in getting involved in undergraduate research, other opportunities can also be found at the 
Office for Undergraduate Research website.
