A unique parallel dual-degree program offered in cooperation with Illinois Institute of Technology allows the student to simultaneously take basic science and general education courses from Elmhurst and engineering courses at IIT.
Engineering courses may be taken at the IIT Rice Campus in Wheaton or at the IIT central campus in Chicago. Curricula in aerospace, architectural, civil, computer, electrical, and mechanical engineering are currently being offered.
Upon completion of the program, which normally takes five years, the student receives a B.S. degree in physics from Elmhurst and a B.S. degree in engineering from IIT. A student enrolled in this program can participate in student activities and use all available facilities at both institutions. A resident student may remain on campus at Elmhurst during the entire program.
