The dual degree programs lead to a degree in engineering from
Purdue School of Engineering and Technology at Indianapolis
(mechanical, electrical, computer, or biomedical
engineering) along with a degree from Butler
University with a major in Mathematics, Computer Science,
Science Technology and Society, Economics or one of the Natural
Sciences (Physics, Chemistry, and Biology).
The 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 EDDP 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.
The Engineering Programs are accredited by the Engineering
Accreditation Commission of the (ABET) Accreditation Board of
Engineering and Technology, 111 Market Place, Suite 1050,
Baltimore, MD 21202-4012 - telephone: (410) 347.7700.
The dual degree programs are five years with residence and
enrollment at Butler University during the programs.
Students normally graduate on time - within 5 years.
An internship experience is an important part of the
curriculum. Most internships are paid, but all count for invaluable
"real world" experience that has proven to be very valuable upon
entering the work force. Interns work in industry or research
laboratories locally, in their hometowns, and across
the country. There are also internship opportunities overseas
with international partners.
The courses in mathematics, sciences, humanities, social
sciences, fine arts and introductory engineering are taught at
Butler University. Engineering faculty come to the Butler
campus to teach introductory engineering classes during the first
three years of the program. Advanced level engineering
courses are taught at the Purdue School of Engineering
and Technology at Indianapolis, a short drive from the Butler
All courses are normally taught at the Butler
campus during the first three years. During the
last two years of the program, courses are taken at Butler
University and the Purdue School of Engineering and Technology
at Indianapolis. The engineering school is about a 10 min.
drive from the Butler campus.
Parking at and transportation between sites* is
supported. *Butler University and Purdue School of Engineering
and Technology at Indianapolis
Job placement/career services at Butler University, Purdue
School of Engineering and Technology at Indianapolis, and Purdue
University at West Lafayette will be available to dual degree
