You will be prepared to pursue excellent jobs in the highly sought after STEM fields in the high-tech, data-based 21st century.

Pau Aran

I chose to attend PNW for the opportunity to play soccer at the Division II level and because of the course catalog of Computer Science.

Sara Wenzel

I came into college with barely any knowledge on what computer science truly was and have thrived.

Take the opportunities that are given to you. Don’t be afraid of them. There are a lot of opportunities and room for growth at PNW, so embrace it and try new things and see where you fit in the most.

I chose PNW because of the top tier engineering program that they offered, and it allowed me to not only get an education but also work throughout my time there.

Attending Purdue Northwest may have been a practical decision, but during my attendance, I found experiences I wouldn’t have found elsewhere.

PNW provided me with a strong science foundation. I was able to build a relationship with many of the faculty and staff. They taught me leadership and allowed me to grow as an individual.

PNW provides a quality education to its students and unique opportunities to better themselves. As a senior, I am thankful for the years that I’ve spent here at PNW and for the quality faculty and students that I have come to know.

I came to PNW because it was close to home, beautiful campus and small class sizes. I stayed at PNW because of the amazing professors and close bonds created with my cohorts.

PNW Alum Hugo Cedeno

PNW prepared me not only for my doctoral studies but also for my future career in the industry. I developed research skills and improved my ability to solve realistic problems that are faced by engineers and managers in the industry.

Hugo Cedeno
Ph.D., Civil Engineering and Computational Science, Fall ’20

My experience in environmental science so far has been incredible and the concentration will definitely help me in my future career. The classes have covered interesting, current topics, while my teachers are very passionate about their classes and helping me succeed.
