Students enrolled in one of 12 majors within the Purdue Polytechnic Institute can receive up to 12 credit hours of elective credits (equivalent of four courses) toward their Purdue University degree.
PLTW credits apply to Purdue’s majors that focus on engineering technologies, construction management and technology management offered on the West Lafayette campus and nine other locations around Indiana. The Purdue Polytechnic Institute is the ONLY college at Purdue University that awards credit for PLTW coursework.
