Dual Degrees

Undergraduate Engineering Dual Degree Program Description

The EDDP (Engineering Dual Degree Program) is a partnership between another university (currently Butler University, Marian University, and University of Indianapolis) and the Purdue School of Engineering and Technology. For example, the EDDP with Butler University allows students to study at Butler University, known for its quality science, humanities, social science, fine arts, and professional programs, and also have access to ABET accredited engineering programs at the Purdue School of Engineering and Technology.

Completion of this program results in a degree from each of the institutions. This program is not a 3-2 program where students are expected to transfer after three years to an engineering school to complete their studies. Instead, the Engineering Dual Degree Program (EDDP) has a curriculum that integrates engineering, science, mathematics, computer science, social sciences, humanities, and fine arts courses and allows residence at the home program (i.e., Butler University) for the duration of the program.

The School also offers a Dual Degree in Motorsport Engineering (MSTE) and Mechanical Engineering (ME).

The following text was offered to each school as a guideline for the calculation of externally-funded research expenditures:

Include all expenditures associated with grants and contracts specifically budgeted for externally sponsored research and associated programs and expenditures associated with all gifts auditably used for research. Include expended funds provided by the following external sources:

  1. Federal Government
  2. State Government
  3. Foreign Governments
  4. Industry
  5. Non-Profit Organizations (e.g. foundations)
  6. Individuals
  7. Local Government

The expenditures reported should be only those funds provided by organizations, agencies, and individuals external to the institution. Cost sharing/matching funds should be included only if provided from sources external to the institution.

Only State government funds that were obtained competitively or as matching funds associated with other externally funded programs should be included. State funds that are part of the normal operating budget should not be included regardless of purpose.

For all joint or contracted projects or sub-projects, only the portion of the center research performed by faculty, staff, and students of the affiliated engineering school should be credited to that school. Expenditures for capital costs of research laboratory building construction should not be included.

Expenditures for research laboratory renovations should not be included unless the renovation funds expended came from grants and contracts expressly intended for the direct support of engineering research.

Any portion of academic year and/or summer salary for any researcher that is not derived from external research grants or contracts should not be counted.

Total #: Report total number of individual grants, not the total dollar amount of the expenditures.

Expenditures: Report actual expenditures (as opposed to authorization amounts) in U.S. dollars.

Time frame for expenditures: Report expenditures for your current fiscal year.

Research centers listed as "WITHIN an engineering department" on the Research Centers page (screen 7) of the College of Engineering Profile, will not have their expenditures added to the school's total research expenditures. Such expenditures can be included in the department total, while still being listed for the appropriate center. This allows users to list the expenditures in two areas without double-counting.

We are focused on molecular interactions at the cell nucleus, and force transduction at the nuclear lamina. Defects in nuclear lamina could lead to signs of aging and be involved in cell senescence. While normal mechanical and hemodynamic forces in the vasculature are necessary for maintaining homemstasis, they can also contribute to localized pathological conditions as well as the normal vascular aging. We use mechanical tools to simulate conditions in vitro, and molecular and cellular biology techniques and imaging tools to analyze changes in cell behavior and functions. These studies will lead to better understanding of mechanical forces in vascular aging and improved methods of treatment and prevention of vascular diseases.

Vehicle and Crash Data Analysis and Processing Laboratory

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) estimates ("The Economic Impact of Motor Crashes 2000" NHTSA, DOT HS-809-446, May 2002) the annual societal cost of motor vehicle crashes in the U.S. at $230.6 billion based on
* 6,328,000 reported crashes involving 11.3 million vehicles
* 4,365,000 crashes per year resulting in property damage
* 1,925,000 crashes resulting in injuries
* 38,252 crashes resulting in 42,643 fatalities

Over the last four decades, the numbers of injuries and fatalities per traveled mile have decreased significantly. However, over the last two decades these numbers have leveled off, indicating that new approaches will be needed in order to achieve additional reductions. Thus automotive suppliers have begun developing active safety products, whose goal is to prevent or mitigate crashes, as opposed to passive safety products, such as seat belts and air bags that provide protection only in a crash. An active safety system senses aspects of the vehicle, driver, traffic, and/or roadway to identify and assess impending crash events, then attempts to avoid the crash either by warning the driver or by taking appropriate control actions such as braking. Active safety products in development include adaptive cruise control, collision warning, lane-departure warning, and lane-keeping systems.

TASI will provide a collaborative environment, facilitating interaction among academic researchers, automotive supplies, vehicle manufacturers, and government regulatory agencies addressing vehicular active safety issues. Through the partners combined efforts, TASI activities will help bridge the gap between innovation, market launch, and evaluation of commercial products. This will speed the market introduction of active safety systems, thereby reducing crash-related injuries, loss of life, and property damage, while promoting innovative companies that boost Indiana's economy.

The Midwest Student Exchange Program (MSEP) is a multi-state tuition reciprocity program. Through the MSEP, participating institutions agree to charge students no more than 150% of the in-state resident tuition rate for specific programs. All enrollment decisions are made at the discretion of the receiving campus and the campus may exercise its right to limit participation or set specific admission requirements for MSEP.

To be eligible for the award at IUPUI, a student must be a resident of Illinois, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, or Wisconsin. The student must also apply and be admitted (including conditional admits) to IUPUI as a nonresident, as well as enroll and attend classes on campus. Eligible students will be granted a Midwest Student Exchange Program award.

Note: Some nonresident students may qualify for resident tuition according to Indiana state law. Those students are not eligible for the Midwest Student Exchange Program award. Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) or undocumented students that are classified as nonresidents are not eligible for the MSEP award.
