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.
Registration. Admitted students are enrolled at each Purdue location.
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.
Degrees. All course credits apply toward a Purdue University degree and are transferable to other Purdue locations.
Counseling Services. Student counseling services are available at each Purdue program location.
Program Design. The programs are designed to prepare technologists for highly technical positions. Both part-time and full-time students are encouraged to enroll. All programs are of the highest quality and are operated in close cooperation with local business and industrial advisory committees. All programs follow the curricula offered at West Lafayette. Technical courses are similar to those on the West Lafayette campus, follow the same learning outcomes and are taught by Purdue faculty members.
The Statewide Technology program includes locations in Anderson, Columbus, Greensburg, Indianapolis, Kokomo, Lafayette, New Albany, Richmond, South Bend and Vincennes. Other communities in Indiana may be served as needs arise.
