Your Impact on Purdue IE

At Purdue, we’re rethinking our whole approach to IE to meet the demands of a dynamic world. We’re reinventing our curriculum, our faculty, and our facilities to become the worldwide leader in IE.

Purdue Gateway Building

In 2015 we saw the reopening of Grissom Hall with its more modern classrooms and numerous spaces for collaboration; enhancing our community of learning.  Our expanded faculty with diverse backgrounds allows us to upgrade our curriculum to prepare the engineers of 2020 and beyond.  Up next: the Gateway building will replace Michael Golden Labs as the new home for our students to tackle new ventures and utilize the latest technology.  We invite you to join Purdue IE on this exciting journey! 

Purdue’s IE alumni play a critical role in the future of Industrial Engineering. There is a tremendous need for volunteers, speakers, mentors, donors, advisors and supporters who will help enhance the Purdue IE experience for our 775 undergraduate and 285 Masters/PhD students.

The Purdue IE Family is committed to providing an experiential learning environment for our students to become leaders in industry, government and academia. Purdue’s Industrial Engineering undergraduate program is ranked #3, the graduate program is ranked #6 and our Online Masters is ranked #1 in the U.S. This would not be possible without the support and involvement of our alumni and friends in the education process.

I would be happy to have a conversation about the numerous ways you can make an impact on Purdue IE.  Feel free to reach me anytime with questions about giving to Purdue IE.
