IE Office of Development & Alumni Relations

Engage or re-engage with the Purdue School of Industrial Engineering! We have many opportunities for you to support the School, students, and faculty, and would be more than happy to discuss any ideas you may have. Your financial support and these gift opportunities help the school continue to "ReThink IE". Each gift makes a difference! 

Also consider giving your time by visiting us and speaking to IE students in class.

Partnerships between the school and our alumni are vital to attracting the best faculty and the best students. With your help, Purdue IE will continue its mission to lead the field of industrial engineering.

Hail Purdue!
