Harvard University’s Graduate School of Design (GSD) and John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) have announced a new, collaborative program: the Master in Design Engineering (MDE) degree. Beginning in Fall 2016, the program, lasting for four terms over two years, will offer students the resources of both GSD and SEAS, combining skills and knowledge across fields to solve multi-scale, complex, open-ended problems.

In the face of intersections between social, environmental and urban issues, the world requires more designers and engineers who understand the relationships between these things. In response to such growing problems, the MDE program addresses the development of students who will be able to answer them with "transformative, multidisciplinary solutions."

Students take the equivalent of four courses per semester over two years, including a series of seminars and guest lectures by prominent innovators, designers, business leaders, and government officials. During the second year, students will select and complete a design project.
