G.R.I.T.+ : Purdue Engineering Experiential Learning

Global, Research, Industry, Teamwork and More

The G.R.I.T.+ initiative launched in 2019 expands the definition of undergraduate education beyond the required curriculum and grades by connecting students to experiential learning opportunities available in Purdue Engineering on and off the transcript. Over 70% of graduating Boilermaker Engineers gain direct experience outside of traditional academic setting through study and work abroad, industry co-ops and internships, research, community service and entrepreneurship projects. We invite you to explore the GRIT+ programs below that enrich, challenge, and deepen the heart and mind.
