Intelligent Systems Engineering

Shape the future of engineering and technology.

On rare occasions, you have an opportunity to blaze a new trail—to take part in something so original that you’ll look back 5, 10, 20 years from now and marvel at what you did.

This is one of those occasions.

Our B.S. and Ph.D. programs in intelligent systems engineering take an innovative approach to engineering—and they’re looking for students who are ready to be innovative, too.

Small-scale solutions to big problems

Small is big. Especially now.

Our program focuses on small-scale and mobile technologies—from designing tiny devices that detect impending seizures to realizing the promise of a hyper-networked Internet of Things.

We offer six focus areas, which we developed with input from industry leaders:

  • Bioengineering
  • Computer engineering
  • Cyber-physical systems
  • Environmental engineering
  • Molecular and nanoscale engineering
  • Neuroengineering

The ideal environment for your studies

A brand-new program has important advantages. Our degrees are designed for what engineering is and will be, rather than what it was. And modern information technology approaches—like intelligent systems, big data, and user interface design—will be part of our DNA from the start.

You’ll also be in a perfect place for interdisciplinary collaboration. The School of Informatics, Computing, and Engineering is one of the world’s largest, broadest, and most accomplished information and technology schools. Indiana University Bloomington is a top public research university with exceptional supercomputing resources and long-standing strengths in many fields, including science, technology, business, and law.

An in-demand field

U.S. employers are projected to add more engineering jobs by 2023. Your first step to one of them? Check out our undergraduate and graduate degrees.
