First, be sure to read your admission letter carefully. It provides important information regarding your student orientation session and future enrollment. Next, the School of Engineering and Technology Office of Student Services would be delighted to hear from you and your plans to enroll. If you like, they can put you in touch with a School of Engineering and Technology student ambassador. (A student’s perspective can be so helpful!) They will also be happy to answer other questions that you may have regarding the School of Engineering and Technology and the IUPUI campus as well.
The School of Engineering and Technology New Student Academic Advising Center will be available to assist you with developing your plan of study and choosing your classes. Typically, freshman students meet with the New Student Academic Advising Center staff during orientation.
Engineering is more theoretical and focuses on new innovation and design. Higher level math and science courses are required.
Engineering Technology is more hands on focusing on the implementation and extension of existing technologies. Math and science courses are required, but the focus is on application as opposed to theory as in an engineering program.
More than 2,000 students live on campus at IUPUI. There are a variety of options to choose from including a whole floor of students who are science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) majors. See HERE for more details.
