The Enginerring Dual Degree Program leads to a degree in
engineering from Purdue School of Engineering and Technology at
Indianapolis (bioimedical, computer, electrical, energy, mechanical
or motorsports engineering) along with a degree from
Butler University (biology, chemistry, computer science, economics,
mathematics, science technology and society or physics).
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.
An internship experience is an important part of the
curriculum. Most internships are paid, but all count for invaluable
"real world" experience. Interns work in industry or research
laboratories locally, in their hometowns or across the
country. There are also internship opportunities overseas with
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 campus.
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 15
minute drive from the Butler campus.
Parking at and transportation between Butler
University and Purdue School of Engineering and Technology at
Indianapolis is supported.
Job placement/career services at Butler University, Purdue
School of Engineering and Technology at Indianapolis and Purdue
University at West Lafayette are available to EDDP students.
