Kickstart Your Career
Our rigorous programs bring real-world experience to the classroom, building the knowledge you need to succeed.
All of the hands-on training I’m receiving at PNW is helping me narrow down exactly what I want to do once I graduate.
The combined curriculum of technology subjects and management and leadership courses motivated me to choose Purdue University Northwest. Now I am proud to be graduating as a valuable alumni!
All my professors are super nice...they’re there to help you. All my teachers are super energetic because they want to do it, which makes it enjoyable.
The classes are small, personal and hands-on, you’re able to build connections with your classmates and professors. If you have questions you can actually talk to the professors.
Purdue Northwest’s nationally recognized program will continue to fill the increasing workforce demand nationwide for cybersecurity professionals
The MS degree exposed me to areas of the field I normally do not have the chance to gain hands on experience, but work side by side with those teams. The exposure to the other fields of IT personally helps me understand how to solution a problem from end to end.
The Technology, MS program provided me with a platform which highly supported my passion towards Electrical Engineering and made opportunities available for me to explore the exciting arena of Industrial Automation.
Specialty scholarships, student organizations, collegiate competitions and internship opportunities – see how the College of Technology can help you succeed.
The U.S. Department of Homeland Security and National Security Agency granted the National Center for Academic Excellence for Cyber Defense Education designation to PNW.
