Engagement

Purdue is set to become the partner of choice for industry and the university of choice for entrepreneurs. Our impact starts early with programs and pedagogy that introduce engineering in K-12 education; we are solving engineering-based problems for local community service and education organizations; and our Engineering Projects in Community Service (EPICS) program has spread across the nation. Our impact across the globe involves building global partnerships to meet the grand challenges of the 21st century and beyond.

Featured Partner

GE and Purdue will collaborate on advanced manufacturing to enable faster, efficient brilliant factories. GE Global Research will invest up to $10 million in a five-year partnership focused on research and development in advanced manufacturing. The GE/Purdue Partnership in Research and Innovation in Advanced Manufacturing (GE/Purdue PRIAM) will push a new era in manufacturing, promoting technologies that enable the digitization, decentralization and democratization of manufacturing to lower cost, improve speed and drive innovation. All three trends are being driven by the increasing convergence of software and hardware that is turning today’s factories into brilliant factories that are more capable, connected and productive than ever.

Along with new technology development, GE/Purdue PRIAM will provide educational and engagement opportunities for Purdue students and GE employees to help ensure future manufacturing workforce needs are addressed. Read more about GE's collaboration with Purdue...
