Any design based, Engineering team with at least 3 majors represented is eligible to earn academic credit. These are independent student organizations, and some members choose to curricularize their experience and earn academic credit. The Multidisciplinary Design Program offers a mechanism to do this.
Note: the majority of students participate in student organizations without earning academic credit. It is not a requirement of joining a team, but an option available for interested students.
For more information about the student organization teams, please visit Wilson Student Team Project Center.
Process for earning academic credit on a student team:
- Join the team! Become a contributing member.
- Identify a faculty member (most often the faculty mentor of the team); get their permission to earn credit.
- Meet with an MDP Academic Advisor for next steps and course permission/override.
Below are examples of student-led design teams where previous MDP students have earned academic credit.
