"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed people can change the world: indeed it's the only thing that ever has."
— Margaret Mead

Unprecedented Potential
Our plan will guide us through this transformation from excellence to preeminence.
The Purdue Engineering strategic plan is aggressive and asserts a commitment to preeminence, principled actions, focused and sustained change, and tremendous individual effort by each of our faculty, staff, students, and alumni. It also demands productive collaborations with our campus administrative and academic colleagues; our academic, institutional, industrial, and government partners; our state legislators and citizenry; and our friends worldwide.

We will realize success, because our people will thrive creatively and technically. Their dreams and personal potential will be realized, and they will change the world through problem solving, leadership, and technology innovation.

We'll know it, because our classrooms and labs will be melting pots of cultures, experiences, and ideas that create an environment for learning and discovery that sizzles with intellectual stimulation, knowledge creation, and mutual caring and respect.

The world will share our success, because our people will give back to our communities and reach out to our stakeholders, shaping their futures as they shape ours.

This is a time of unprecedented potential. Join us.
