Integrated Science and Engineering Division (ISE)

The Integrated Science and Engineering (ISE) Division is designed for students who seek to pursue careers in the natural sciences and engineering, and for those who also wish to gain an interdisciplinary perspective on their chosen specialization that is not available in a typical natural science program. ISED students gain a thorough understanding of subjects including biotechnology, nanoscience, energy and environmental engineering by rigorously studying theory and application in both the classroom and through hands-on experience in the laboratory. At the same time, students gain a solid understanding of the ways in which science and technology affect our society, politics, and economy.


The NSE major is composed of basic courses, advanced courses, and applied courses that cover the disciplines fundamental to scientific inquiry such as, physics, chemistry, and mathematics. Students start with the basics-thermodynamics; organic, inorganic, and polymer chemistry, electromagnetism, applied biochemistry, and quantum mechanics for understanding nanoscale phenomena-and progress on to more and more complex subjects-nanoscale solid state physics; nano-bio system; nano-optics; nano-photonic systems; introductory nano-semiconductors; and other courses on various nanoscale principles and their applications. Along with these basic and applied classes, the program provides foundational education through hands-on experimentation to deepen the students’ understanding of the nanoscale world and to promote practical research.
