U.S. News and World Report ranked both our graduate and undergraduate programs in the Top 10 nationwide. Purdue’s College of Engineering is among the largest in the United States and includes 13 academic programs all with high rankings. And we’re accelerating the speed at which we progress. Together, we’re bringing our college from excellence to preeminence.
Purdue’s College of Engineering is embarking on a period of remarkable growth. With the support of the Provost and Board of Trustees, we expect to increase the size of the CoE faculty by as much as 30% and the CoE staff by 28% over the next five years. Growth on this scale is an opportunity for Transformational change. More information can be found on our Strategic Growth Initiative page.
Interdisciplinary, Global, and Diverse
Our growth, fueled by our alumni and friends, is giving us the tools and room to develop more revolutionary technologies that are already changing the world around us. We are cutting across the established boundaries of Purdue’s engineering and related disciplines. In doing so, we’re incorporating all perspectives. We’re taking advantage of our own diverse makeup, and we’re approaching issues from a world point of view. We’re equipping our students with the capacity to perform in a fast-changing and increasingly global economy.

First-Year Engineering at Purdue
The First-Year Engineering (FYE) Program of the School of Engineering Education 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.
