This unique, five-year program allows students to earn two degrees: one in engineering from the Purdue School of Engineering and Technology in Indianapolis along with a Butler degree. Concentrations for the Purdue Engineering degree include Biomedical, Computer, Electrical, Energy, Mechanical, or Motorsports. The Butler degree can be in one of the following disciplines: Art + Design, Astronomy and Astrophysics, Biochemistry, Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, Economics, Environmental Studies, Exploratory Natural Sciences, Mathematics, Music, Physics, or Science, Technology and Society. This program provides a diverse, creative, professional, technical, and liberal arts educational experience occurring through two quality, neighboring universities.
Butler’s Software Engineering major blends academic coursework with research, internship, and service opportunities to prepare students for graduate school and the working world. The Software Engineering major offers access to the Big Dawg supercomputer, networking lunches and programming contests, and the unique opportunity to create software for nonprofit organizations through participation in our Engineering Projects in Community Service (EPICS) program. With the small class sizes of a liberal arts school; the rigorous, well-rounded curriculum and premier resources of a dedicated tech school; and a nearly 100 percent job placement rate, students have all the advantages they need to excel.
