Thank you for visiting the School of Materials Engineering Giving Website. Private donations from key stakeholders of the School, like you, enable us to fulfill our overarching mission of serving diverse peoples through discovery that expands the frontiers of knowledge, learning that nurtures the sharing of knowledge, and engagement that promotes the application of knowledge.

Currently, the State of Indiana and student fees only provide Purdue University with 51% of the resources needed to operate and maintain a world-class University. Your gifts have made possible our new home (Neil Armstrong Hall of Engineering) while also continuing to help us attract and retain the best and brightest faculty, staff, and students to fill that home.
