The Engineering Dual Degree Program (EDDP) results from the partnership between the two well-established programs at Butler University and the Purdue School of Engineering and Technology at Indianapolis. The EDDP allows students to study at Butler University which is known for its quality science, humanities, social science, fine arts, and professional programs and also have access to ABET accredited engineering programs at the Purdue School of Engineering and Technology at Indianapolis.

Completion of this program results in a degree from both institutions - two degrees thus a dual degree program. The Butler University Engineering Dual Degree Program is not a 3-2 program where students are expected to transfer after three years to an engineering school to complete their studies. The Engineering Dual Degree Program has a curriculum that integrates engineering, science, mathematics, computer science, social sciences, humanities and fine arts courses and allows residence and enrollment at Butler University for the duration of the program.  Engineering courses are taught on the Butler University campus during the first three years of the program.

New Engineering Major Options: Energy Engineering and Motorsports Engineering

Energy Engineering

Energy engineers discover valuable renewable energy sources that free us from dependency on quickly depleting materials. They reduce greenhouse gas emissions that are hazardous to humans and the environment, and they eliminate waste by making our world more energy-efficient.

This broad field of engineering deals with energy efficiency, energy services, facility management, environmental compliance and alternative energy technologies. Energy engineers creatively apply their knowledge of science (physics and chemistry), engineering (electrical and mechanical) and economics to confront the global challenges of energy supply and demand.

This program combines courses from chemistry, mechanical engineering, physics and electrical engineering to create a strong knowledge base essential to success in this industry. Students also have the opportunity to take courses concentrating on critical energy issues such as green building, hybrid and electric transportation, fuel cells and bio fuels, and energy systems such as wind, solar and nuclear.

Motorsports Engineering

This program aims to prepare graduates for careers in the motorsports industry, as well as automotive-related companies Motorsports Engineering focuses on teaching fundamentals of engineering and includes hands-on projects that involve designing, analyzing and building actual systems.
