In computing and graphics, we invite you to create the entertainment of tomorrow, make our increasingly-online world more secure or build the digital infrastructure companies use every day. There's a place for you at the heart of innovation.

We want to give students real-world experience with the digital technologies of the future, not just talk to them about it. No matter where your interests lie — whether in coding new software, working on the web, becoming a vital resource for information technology, making video games and beyond — Purdue Polytechnic makes sure you actually get to those things. Between our state-of-the-art high-performance computer labs and our faculty with decades of experience in the industry of your choosing, you will get hands-on experience doing what you love far beyond the lecture hall.

Faith Spencer

Boilermaker weighs in on how she put her interests on a career path.

As a high school student, Faith Spencer always thought she knew what she wanted to do after high school.

As someone who did well in math and science classes and had multiple Boilermakers in the family, she set her sights on a career in engineering. So it was a natural decision to take part in several summer engineering programs for high schoolers.
