Graduate Program

  • Masters of Sciences in Engineering (MSE) with tracks in computer, electrical, mechanical, and systems engineering

Accreditation by the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) of ABET

Low Student/Faculty Ratio

  • Average class size in first-year engineering classes: 23
  • Average class size in other engineering classes: 15
  • Average number of graduates per year (last 5 years): 24

Nineteen full-time faculty all holding doctoral degrees in engineering or science

An Innovative Student-Centered Curriculum With:

  • An emphasis on design content and hands-on laboratory experiences
  • A common first-year program for all engineering majors
  • Classes that rotate between day and evening times to accommodate both traditional students and working adults
  • A strong foundation in math and sciences; all the computer and electrical engineering majors graduate with a minor in mathematics

Faculty Active in Engineering Scholarship

  • In 2013 IPFW engineering faculty published five book & book chapters and over fifty papers in conference proceedings and journals

Active Student Chapters of National Engineering Organizations

  • American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE)
  • American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME)
  • Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE)
  • National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE)
  • Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE)

A Sample of Companies Employing Recent Graduates

  • DePuy, Fort Wayne Metals, General Electric, International Truck and Engine Corp., ITT Industries, Martin Riley Mock, Inc., Northrop Grumman, Parker Hannifin Corporation, Raytheon, UnderSea Sensor Systems, WaterFurnace International, and Zimmer

Co-op Program

  • Students participate in this program alternating semesters of study with semesters working in an industrial internship.

Professional Exam

  • For the past ten years more than 90% of the IPFW engineering seniors taking the Fundamentals of Engineering exam have passed (the first step in professional engineering registration)

Senior Design Projects

  • All seniors complete a one year small-group design projects. These projects are advised by a faculty member and many are sponsored by local industry.
