Innovative Partnership

Starting in Fall 2024, Wittenberg will offer a new engineering pathway thanks to a dual-degree partnership with Indiana Institute of Technology (Indiana Tech), located in Fort Wayne, Indiana.

Administered through Wittenberg’s Department of Physics, the new pathway will give Wittenberg students a competitive advantage as it combines the critical thinking, immersive research, and problem-solving skills that define the University’s liberal arts education with the expansive, high-tech learning options of Indiana Tech, a larger, STEM-focused institution.

The partnership with Indiana Tech allows students the opportunity to earn a B.A. in physics from Wittenberg University and a B.S. in engineering from Indiana Tech via remote learning, all while remaining on the Wittenberg campus for a total of five academic years.

Inside the Program

An interdisciplinary and integrated degree with broadly focused concentrations designed to expose students to various engineering disciplines, Indiana Tech’s B.S. in engineering offers students the opportunity to create their own track of engineering study.

A Growth Industry

As per the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, between 2023-2033 the number of engineering jobs is expected to grow from 3% to 12% depending on track pursued with the median wage coming in around $97,000, making this program addition all the more essential in today’s ever-evolving marketplace.
