Joint Programs

Joint Engineering Programs

IIT has established joint engineering programs with the following Chicago area institutions: Wheaton College, Benedictine University, Elmhurst College, Dominican University, DePaul University, Lewis University and University of St. Francis. This program differs from a 3+2 transfer program in that students earn two bachelor's degrees: an engineering degree from IIT and a bachelor's degree in an approved discipline from their host school.

Students will live on the campus of their host school while completing the requirements for both degrees. Admission into the Joint Engineering program at another institution does not guarantee admission to IIT.
