G.R.I.T.+: Global, Research, Industry, Teamwork and More


Receiving a degree from Purdue University is about more than the classes our students take and the grades they earn for them. Purdue Engineering echoes President Mitch Daniels’ proclamation that Boilermakers’ emotional strength, or “grit,” will be essential for success during students’ time at Purdue and in the future as they begin their careers. Grit comes from within and is built from a drive to succeed, the ability to overcome obstacles, and the perseverance required to make it to graduation day. A Purdue Engineering degree speaks volumes about the skills acquired and experiences gained that go beyond the lecture hall. G.R.I.T.+ programs enrich, challenge, and deepen the heart and mind.
