Ivy Tech Community College Fort Wayne and Warsaw and Purdue University Fort Wayne are again partnering to create opportunities for Indiana students. Construction management and engineering technology articulation agreements have been formalized between the institutions that allow students to complete 60 credit hours and their associate degree at Ivy Tech and then transfer to Purdue Fort Wayne to complete their bachelor’s degree.
“Collaborative transfer agreements are a win-win for both of our institutions, the community and the student body,” according to Gary Steffen, Director of Purdue Fort Wayne’s School of Polytechnic.
“Faculty from the two institutions have enjoyed a collaborative relationship for the past few years,” said Darrel J. Kesler, Dean of Ivy Tech Fort Wayne and Warsaw’s School of Advanced Manufacturing, Engineering & Applied Science. “Northeast Indiana students have benefited from this cooperation and the formal articulation agreements will further support their educational endeavors.”
The new agreements create pathways for students from Ivy Tech’s Building Construction Management and Engineering Technology programs to Purdue Fort Wayne’s Construction Management and Industrial Engineering Technology programs respectively. These options allow students to obtain an affordable, high quality education in their home community and will positively impact construction and manufacturing industries in northeast Indiana.
