Franklin College maintains a cooperative “3+2” program with the Purdue University School of Engineering and Technology at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI). Students in this program earn a B.A. degree from Franklin College in either Applied Mathematics or Chemistry and a B.S. degree from Purdue University in one of four engineering fields in the span of five years.
The engineering degrees available through this program are:
- Computer Engineering (B.S.Cmp.E.)
- Electrical Engineering (B.S.E.E.)
- Mechanical Engineering (B.S.M.E.)
Students pursuing one of the above Engineering degrees will declare a major in Applied Mathematics and follow that degree program as stated in the catalog.
Students following the 3+2 program will be required to make certain selections in their liberal arts core and for major courses currently listed as electives in order to satisfy the engineering requirements at IUPUI.
For students intending on pursuing Computer, Electrical, and Mechanical Engineering degrees and who are therefore majoring in Applied Mathematics:
- The courses indicated in the tables above satisfy the “12 additional credit hours” requirement for the major as well as the Natural Science category course requirement for the liberal arts core.
- CMP 130 (Introduction to Computing) and PDP 200 (Professional Development) are both waived as requirements for the Applied Mathematics degree for students in the engineering program.
- INT 261/SNT 489 may be satisfied by an internship in engineering done through IUPUI if the student chooses.
