    The recent threads about college got me thinking about this. My school offers a master's degree in Integrated Science and Technology. A quick google search revealed a couple other schools that have a similar program or a bachelor's ISAT degree. My school considers it a professional degree, but doesn't give any real explanation of how it might translate into the real world. What exactly is it and what is it useful for?

    From the requirements it looks like a general studies type degree with areas concentrated around upper level math, physics, and industrial tech classes. It sounds like it could be pretty useful in the right work environment, but then your school will tell you the same thing about a general studies degree.

    So what so you? Ever heard of an ISAT program and know any details about it?
