Make The Connection
CSIE is an innovative program funded by the National Science Foundation. With the grant, Eastern has created a program that is designed to help Eastern students succeed in four important areas – science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.
Students who participate in the CSIE Program get the most out of their classes by taking two or more classes, called a cluster, at the same time, as well as a one credit CSIE seminar that links the courses.
Make the connection between courses, with faculty, among peers, and in the community by participating in a Creative Scientific Inquiry Experience —CSIE.
The CSIE Program links the courses you need when you need them. Students take one or two science or mathematics courses in a cluster along with a one-credit seminar course. The seminar allows students to explore topics common to both disciplines in greater depth and using tools and techniques not normally taught in the first and second year courses. All CSIE experiences include:
The path to graduation starts with CSIE— and the CSIE team of faculty, student-peers, community partners, and program staff will reach out to help you keep on track.
