Engineering Course Equivalencies at Indiana Public Colleges  

One of the requirements to transfer into a Purdue engineering professional school is to have completed nine courses that are equivalent to courses students complete during the Purdue First-Year Engineering Program. Some Indiana institutions offer these equivalencies and you may use the table below to identify the courses at these schools.

In addition to the course equivalencies, students should be aware of additional institution-specific information below.

* ENGR 18100 (5 credits) can substitute for both the ENGR 13200 requirement (2 credits) and the Science Selective (3 credits).

** No equivalency has been established for CS 15900 at these institutions. Students from these institutions may transfer into Purdue-West Lafayette with FYE complete through the use of the Chemistry courses for the Science Selective. In some Engineering majors, CS 15900 may be required following entry to Purdue.

1IUPUI courses ENGR 19500 and ENGR 19600 at IUPUI Indianapolis are considered equivalent to ENGR 10000 and ENGR 12600 at Purdue-West Lafayette. These IUPUI courses also satisfy the Purdue-West Lafayette ENGR 13100 and ENGR 13200 requirements.

Additional Information

Some engineering professional programs are closed to transfer applicants. However, students at Purdue regional campuses (Calumet, North Central, and IPFW) may still apply to these closed programs (with the exception of Biomedical Engineering). Students from other Indiana institutions, including IUPUI, will not be considered for admission to engineering programs that are closed to transfer students. Visit the closed program web page.
