The Purdue Polytechnic Institute, previously named the College of Technology, is one of 10 colleges at Purdue University offering undergraduate and graduate degrees.
As one of the Purdue Moves initiatives, the college is undergoing a major transformation that affects all facets of the college, the scope of which is so profound that a name change was warranted. The Polytechnic name best embodies the characteristics, elements, and philosophy of the transformed college and readily represents a distinctive brand that highlights the unique nature of the learning experience.
