While we focus our energies on one undergraduate engineering degree program, we designed it to be customized by each of our students, whether it be through crafting their own capstone topic, a personal mix of electives, or smart engagement in engineering extracurriculars. These opportunities offer a learning landscape to craft a Madison Engineering experience unique to each of our students.
