Students interested in pursuing an engineering degree can begin their studies at IU South Bend in the Department of Physics and Astronomy. The department has dual-degree arrangements with engineering departments at other institutions, under which students can earn both a Bachelor of Science in Physics from IU South Bend and a Bachelor of Science in Engineering from the partnering institution, following at least three years of study at IU South Bend and two years of study at the partnering institution. More information about these 3/2 dual-degree arrangements can be found in the Physics and Astronomy section of the listing of undergraduate programs in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.
Students interested in transferring to an engineering degree program without pursuing a physics degree from IU South Bend should consult the admissions office at the institution to which they hope to transfer.

While specific requirements for transfer admission vary by institution, the courses listed below are required in most engineering degree programs. Specifically, they are required of students transferring into one of the professional engineering schools at the West Lafayette campus of Purdue University.

  • CHEM-C 105 Principles of Chemistry I
  • CHEM-C 106 Principles of Chemistry II
  • CHEM-C 126 Experimental Chemistry II (2 cr.)
  • CHEM-C 125 Experimental Chemistry I (2 cr.)
  • CSCI-C 101 Computer Programming I (4 cr.)
  • ENG-W 131 Reading, Writing, and Inquiry I
  • MATH-M 215 Calculus I (5 cr.)
  • MATH-M 216 Calculus II (5 cr.)
  • PHYS-P 221 Physics 1 (5 cr.)
  • PHYS-P 222 Physics 2 (5 cr.)
  • SPCH-S 121 Public Speaking

A limited number of courses in the social and behavioral sciences or in the arts and humanities can generally also be applied toward the requirements of an engineering degree program.

Students interested in taking coursework in engineering at IU South Bend should contact the faculty advisor, Monika Lynker, in physics and astronomy soon after admission to IU South Bend to discuss an appropriate degree program.
