# Interdisciplinary Computing

KU’s Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) department created our innovative Interdisciplinary Computing (IC) program in 2011 with several different concentration areas in which students can apply their computing expertise. Our BSIC curriculum provides a strong foundation in computer science, augmented with fundamental knowledge in one of the concentration areas. Our BSIC graduates have secured positions in a variety of industrial and government settings. Some work or continue with graduate study in their con-centration area, while others work in more traditional computer science roles.
