Engineering articulation agreement signed with Ivy Tech

Purdue Calumet and Ivy Tech Community College entered into an articulation agreement Thursday (7/18) that enables pre-engineering associate degree graduates of any Ivy Tech campus to transfer seamlessly into our baccalaureate engineering programs.

The agreement allows qualified, pre-engineering graduates of any of Ivy Tech’s 14 campuses statewide to study undergraduate engineering on our campus.

“This is a big step in simplifying the procedure and providing opportunities for Ivy Tech graduates to transfer to Purdue Calumet in pursuit of a baccalaureate degree,” Purdue Calumet Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs and Provost Ralph Rogers said. “Much of the behind-the-scenes credit for making this agreement happen goes to Bill Law (dean of Engineering, Mathematics and Science) and Ivy Tech Dean (of the School of Applied Science and Engineering Technology) Abdalla Hazaimeh.”

More specifically, the agreement calls for Ivy Tech pre-engineering graduates with a grade point average of at least 2.5 to transfer and apply a minimum of 59 credit hours to any of Purdue Calumet’s four Bachelor of Science engineering programs: mechanical, electrical, civil or computer engineering.
