Purdue Polytechnic Institute

HANDS-ON EDUCATION. REAL-WORLD SUCCESS.

Since you already know the “T” in “STEM” represents “technology,” bring your innovation, creativity and problem-solving skills to the Polytechnic because this is where Purdue does technology!

As a Purdue Polytechnic student, you’ll learn by doing! Turn your enthusiasm for building, making and learning into hands-on labs, research and class projects that will hone your soft skills, like problem-solving and communication, while improving your critical-thinking abilities. 

You’ll gain deep technical knowledge and applied skills in one of our six academic areas: 

  • Engineering technologies
  • Technology education
  • Computing and graphics
  • Aviation
  • Construction
  • Technology leadership

Along the way, you’ll develop a deeper understanding of cultural and global perspectives and their impact on business and industry. 

You’ll even be challenged to solve real-world problems for industry sponsors, so don’t be surprised that companies like Amazon, Boeing, Caterpillar, Motorola, Honeywell Aerospace and Rolls-Royce know us well — they come knocking for our big-picture-thinking leaders.

When you graduate with a Purdue University degree after majoring in the Polytechnic, you will be uniquely qualified for a technology-driven career!
