Kickstart Your Career
Our rigorous programs bring real-world experience to the classroom, building the knowledge you need to succeed.
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.
I chose to attend PNW because it was close to home and is a great, recognized part of the Purdue academic system.
I chose Purdue University Northwest because it is a nationally-ranked engineering program and because they believed in me.
I am very happy to have been a graduate of PNW. I have many experiences, formed lasting friendships, and took the combined advice from of my professors and mentors and used it as a guide for my career, and will continue to do so in the future.
I believe having smaller class sizes at PNW compared to other big engineering universities really has allowed me to gain more hands-on experience (especially in labs) that I would not have been able to have at other schools.
I chose PNW because it was close to home, affordable and they have a respected and accredited engineering program.
I chose to be an engineer because I'm interested in why things are the way they are in the world around us.
PNW provided all of the courses and extracurricular activities so that I had enough knowledge and experience to make the transition from student to full-time engineer an easy one. In my whole career, I have not felt unprepared for the technical challenges at hand.
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.
PNW has provided me with nearly all the knowledge I will need to pursue my dream career as an inventor and researcher.
In the most recent U.S. News and World Report rankings, PNW ranks 60th nationally among the Best Engineering Programs, of engineering schools whose highest degree is a bachelor’s or master’s degree.

News & Announcements
We are very pleased to confirm that we are planning for an in-person Fall Semester at Purdue Northwest.
Purdue University Northwest (PNW) researchers at the Center for Innovation through Visualization and Simulation (CIVS) are leading a team using a $7 million federal grant to improve steelmaking processes.
We are excited to return to in-person commencement ceremonies to allow our graduates to share this important experience safely with family and friends. Graduation marks the determination of PNW students in persisting to earn their degrees, and the Class of ’21 has demonstrated great flexibility and innovation to achieve this milestone.
