College of Engineering


Overview

Highly Ranked

U.S. News and World Report has ranked our programs in the Top 10 nationwide, with our graduate program at No. 4, our undergraduate program at No. 9, and online graduate program at No. 3. Purdue’s College of Engineering has the largest top 10 undergraduate engineering program in the U.S. The College includes 13 academic programs, all with high rankings; Agricultural and Biological Engineering is No. 1 for graduate and undergraduate studies.

Accelerated Growth

Purdue’s College of Engineering is rapidly accelerating progress toward the Pinnacle of Excellence at Scale. Among the signs, we have more than 10 federally funded centers, each with at least $10 million in research funding; we are constructing the largest academic facility on campus and preparing to erect a building for leading-edge hypersonics research; and we are the first non-medical public college to raise more than $1 billion in philanthropic gifts in a campaign.

Beyond the Classroom: Interdisciplinary, Global, Diverse Learning

Beginning in their first year, students have abundant opportunities to augment and enrich their education through experiential learning and contributions to world-improving technologies. Teaching and research programs transcend traditional academic and grade-level boundaries, often engaging industry, government, alumni and other university partners. Leveraging our diversity and incorporating all perspectives, we’re equipping students to excel in an ever-evolving and increasingly global economy. G.R.I.T.+ initiatives offer Purdue Engineers experiential learning opportunities, such as study and work abroad, industry co-ops and internships, hands-on research, community service, and entrepreneurship projects.

Admissions (website)

First-Year Engineering at Purdue

The First-Year Engineering (FYE) program is the entry point for all beginning engineering students. In the FYE program, students complete foundational coursework in math, science, engineering, and communications (oral and written). After this common first year, students choose their discipline of engineering and start to follow the plan of study of a particular degree program. The mission of this student-oriented program is to advise, prepare and retain outstanding students for degree programs in  Purdue’s College of Engineering.

See First-Year Engineering  for more information.
