UIndy engineering Engineering Dual Degree Program UIndy engineering

The Engineering Dual Degree Program (EDDP) is a cooperative partnership between the University of Indianapolis and the Purdue School of Engineering and Technology at Indianapolis (IUPUI) that allows you to complete the requirements for two distinct undergraduate degrees in five years – a bachelor's degree in chemistry, computer science, math or physics from UIndy, and a complementary bachelor's degree in engineering from Purdue at IUPUI. With an engineering degree, the career opportunities are vast. From high performance engine design to developing super-computers to automate research, engineering gives you the technical and scientific problem-solving skills needed in the most cutting-edge fields.

This program allows you to enjoy the benefits of small, specialized math and science classes and personalized attention at UIndy. All dual-degree engineering programs are accredited by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology, Inc. (ABET).

Dual enrollment

If you are accepted into the EDDP, you will be dual-enrolled at both institutions starting your freshman year, unlike traditional 3–2 programs in which students are enrolled at one university full time for three years and subsequently transfer to the other. While you will take courses at UIndy during your freshman year, you may enroll in courses at both institutions during your second through fifth years of study. Students commonly take courses at both institutions during a single semester due to course availability; however, you are not required to do so.

Choose from 9 degree combinations

There are currently 9 combinations of degrees that you can receive from UIndy/Purdue at IUPUI. The table below lists UIndy degrees and their corresponding Purdue at IUPUI engineering degree options.

Engineering programs

  • Electrical engineering: Focuses on the uses of electricity, along with the equipment used for power generation and distribution.
  • Computer engineering: Combines methodology in electrical engineering and computer science for the development of computer hardware and software.
  • Biomedical engineering: Combines engineering principles with the medical sciences to improve health care systems.

Program advantages

  • Access to all opportunities that each campus offers, including academic courses, extracurricular programs, academic advising, career services and student support services
  • Innovative and active learning in lab-based, project-based programs from day one
  • Opportunities for student-faculty research at UIndy
  • Advantage of registering for courses at both institutions during the regular open registration period
  • Classes are taught by a large pool of highly qualified professors from both schools
  • Students have the option of playing sports at UIndy while completing the program

Financial aid

UIndy acts as students' home institution all five years; therefore, students pay UIndy tuition and receive their financial aid packages from UIndy.

Admission requirements

For consideration into the Engineering Dual Degree Program, interested students must complete the University of Indianapolis undergraduate application and do not need to apply to IUPUI. All applicants must meet the following minimum requirements:

  • 3.0 high school GPA
  • SAT scores of at least 570 in Math and 540 in Reading + Writing (1110 combined score) OR
  • ACT scores of 24 in Math and 20 in English
  • Completion of a college preparatory curriculum (Core 40) including chemistry and four years of math courses (including pre-calculus)
  • Students interested in the biomedical engineering program must have earned a C- or better in all freshman courses, with a cumulative 2.5 GPA.
  • Students must be able to provide their own transportation between schools.

Curriculum Guides

Listed below is the general education curriculum guide listing your class options and requirements to fulfill UIndy's general education requirements, along with separate curriculum guides for each combination of majors available in the EDDP. You'll need to look at both the general education guide and the guide for your chosen major combination to get a complete picture of what classes you'll need to take for degree completion at UIndy and Purdue at IUPUI.
