New Dimensions in Multidisciplinary Thinking is a study conducted by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) that is changing the way engineers think about education. The findings of the study indicate that some mechanical engineering programs are changing core courses and adding new electives in biology and chemistry. The study also indicates that this multi-disciplinary approach is the "essence of innovation and the key driver" in the emergence and maturation of nanotechnology and microelectromechanical systems.
