Important Program Update

As the Indiana University and Purdue University partnership in IUPUI approaches its end on June 30, 2024, it is necessary to redefine Butler’s partnership with Purdue Engineering programs. Butler is already working with Purdue-Indianapolis to create exciting new opportunities that will benefit both students and the central Indiana economy.

All students currently enrolled in the Engineering Dual Degree Program, including those starting the program in fall 2023, will be able to complete their degrees on schedule and without interruption. Please direct any questions to Dr. Amber Russell, Program Director, at

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.

The Engineering Dual Degree Program (EDDP) is a partnership between the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences at Butler University and the Purdue School of Engineering and Technology at Indianapolis. Through this five-year undergraduate program, students can earn two degrees: a degree in engineering from Purdue University along with a degree from Butler University.
