Engineering Dual Degree Program
Today’s successful engineers need:
- A strong foundation in the sciences, mathematics, and engineering to build research and problem-solving skills
- An appreciation of the human dimension of technology
- A grasp of global issues and sensitivity to cultural diversity
- Effective communication skills
The unique structure of the Engineering Dual Degree Program (EDDP) addresses these needs and prepares you for career paths in industrial engineering, research, and more. In EDDP, you will graduate in five years with:
- An ABET-approved degree in engineering from the Purdue School of Engineering at Indianapolis, Butler’s program partner
- A full major and degree in one or more of the natural sciences, mathematics, economics, or music (new!) from Butler University
- A strong liberal educational background from Butler’s College of Liberal Arts and Sciences
Two universities. Two degrees. One program.
We are proud to announce the new Music + Engineering Dual Degree Program (EDDP). In this five-year degree program, students will graduate with a Bachelor of Arts in Music from Butler University and a degree in engineering from Butler’s program partner, the Purdue School of Engineering at Indianapolis.

How EDDP Works
The EDDP’s 5-year program integrates curricula from Butler and Purdue. You’ll enroll at both universities, and Butler will manage your admission applications, financial aid, and housing. Engineering courses are taught on the Butler campus during the first 3 years of the program with courses at both campuses (a 5-mile commute) during the last 2 years.
Job placement of EDDP graduates is nearly 100%. Some of our students receive offers before graduation. EDDP alumni work for leading companies, including Google, Shell, Exxon-Mobil, Cummins, and Johns Hopkins. Others pursue advanced degrees in engineering, medicine, computer science, law, and more.
