The Purdue School of Engineering and Technology at IUPUI is one of twenty-three academic units at IUPUI and has one of the largest undergraduate enrollments. The School offers academic programs in engineering and technology that lead to certificates, Associate of Science, Bachelor of Science and Master of Science degrees, as well as a joint Ph.D. program with Purdue University, West Lafayette in biomedical engineering, electrical and computer engineering, and mechanical engineering. The School has traditionally had strong ties to local business and industry because of its emphasis on practical application of technology and a faculty and student body experienced in the work place. Over the years, the School has sought the advice of business and industry leaders by establishing advisory groups for the School as a whole, for individual departments and for specific programs or projects.
The School established its current structure for the Dean’s Industrial Advisory Council (DIAC) in 1996-1997, composed of leaders representing a wide spectrum of industrial organizations located in central Indiana.
