Purdue University is gearing up to begin offering a bachelor's degree in engineering technology at four regional sites
run by its College of Technology.
Starting next fall, Purdue will start offering the degree in Anderson, Kokomo, Richmond and South Bend. The school says the
new effort is intended to give students an opportunity to earn a Purdue degree while staying close to home.
But Purdue says it will also provide trained workers for specific community needs.
School officials say the focus of the bachelor of science in engineering technology degree program at each location will
be determined by the work force and regional economic needs.
Students will be able to transfer up to 62 hours of approved coursework from Ivy Tech Community College toward the degree.
