The Department of Interdisciplinary Studies (DIS) designed its curriculum to bridge the gap between the students' technical skills and personal development. To achieve this, the department is equipped with state-of-the-art equipments and providing the necessary background knowledge in mathematical areas to support the major engineering streams.
The main aim of the DIS is to train the undergraduate students' interaction with the environment. This helps the students to asses the impact of engineering activity on the environment, and thus take steps to mitigate any adverse effect. They are expected to continue self education while effectively communicating with other members of the profession and the public.
The DIS offers modules in common areas of all engineering disciplines which include management, economics, social science, personal development, aesthetics and mathematics.
