The Purdue Polytechnic Institute, previously named the College of Technology, is one of 10 colleges at Purdue University offering undergraduate and graduate degrees. The college includes seven academic schools, departments, and divisions:
The academic programs in the Purdue Polytechnic combine theory-based applied learning, team-based projects, integrated humanities studies, competency-based credentialing, and a series of experiential components such as industry-sponsored senior capstone projects, internships, global immersions, and certification-earning activities. The Polytechnic learning experience is designed to produce graduates who not only have deep technical knowledge and applied skills in their chosen discipline, but also possess problem-solving, critical thinking, communication, and leadership skills sought by industries and communities.

The Purdue Polytechnic Institute Statewide is a unique partnership between education and business, industry and government. Polytechnic Statewide was created to extend Purdue’s existing technology programs across the state where highly skilled workers with problem-solving skills are in great demand. Polytechnic Statewide also provides a mechanism for training presently employed people in state-of-the-industry technology.
Polytechnic Statewide represents a direct academic and administrative extension of the Purdue Polytechnic Institute at the West Lafayette campus. Although usually located on the campus of another university, academic, administrative and financial control rests with Purdue.
A technology advisory council, representative of key executives of business, industry, government and education, counsels on the development of the overall program. This partnership assists in the identification of general needs.

Fees. Fees are charged per credit hour and vary by location. Fees are either set to match West Lafayette fees or those of the host institution at the location.
