About Purdue University

Purdue University is known not only for science, technology, engineering, and math programs, but also for its imagination, ingenuity, and innovation. It’s a place where those who seek an education come to make their ideas real — especially when those transformative discoveries lead to scientific, technological, social, or humanitarian impact.

Founded in 1869 in West Lafayette, Indiana, the University proudly serves its state as well as the nation and the world. Academically, Purdue’s role as a major research institution is supported by top-ranking disciplines in pharmacy, business, engineering, and agriculture.­

From alumni like Astronaut Neil Armstrong to Nobel Prize winners, graduates from Purdue University have been making history since 1869. Today, more than 410,000 living Purdue alumni combine to create a business network you can count on from a university you can believe in.
