From Excellence to Preeminence: The Future in Focus


Focus on the Future

The demand for us to contribute to the economic prosperity and social welfare of our society is a growing obligation. The partnership among academe, government, and industry is even more critical as the disciplinary boundaries blur and technology erases geographic barriers. Educating talented men and women is increasingly complex as knowledge and technology expand at unprecedented speed.

Purdue is uniquely positioned to redefine engineering higher education in the 21st century. Rooted in acknowledged excellence for our educational programs and disciplinary expertise, we are striding confidently into new areas of investigation, exploring new methods of inspiring learning, and reaching out to our local, national, and global communities. We are investing in our people and facilities at a time when others are forced to tighten their fiscal belts.

Given these strengths and guided by insights from our stakeholders, we have crafted a strategy that will lead us from excellence to the paramount distinction of preeminence. We trust it will captivate your interest and motivate you to help us create our envisioned future.
We look forward to working in partnership with you.

With warm regards,
The Engineering Leadership Team
