Hello, future Techies, current Techies, and all friends of Purdue University’s Polytechnic Institute! Please join us during a LIVE BROADCAST on YouTube to get answers to your questions about Purdue Polytechnic, our majors, and our unique learning environment. Each Purdue Polytechnic Live Q&A broadcast features:
- Discussion of specific topics by our faculty, staff, and/or students … and occasionally alumni and/or industry representatives
- Answers to questions you submit via YouTube's live chat feature or sent in advance to firstname.lastname@example.org (or a special address, when listed for specific broadcasts)
Dates, times, topics & panelists of future broadcasts are subject to change. For earlier broadcasts, see the index of replays, sorted by topic, below.
How to ask questions while watching live: A chat function will be available on YouTube while the broadcast is live. To participate in the chat, you will have to create and log into a Google account, and then connect that account to YouTube. But don’t worry: you don’t have to submit any videos or do anything with that YouTube connection after the broadcast.

Broadcast Replays from 2023
We’ve been broadcasting for several years! If we didn’t cover a specific topic in one broadcast, there’s a chance we talked about it previously. Here are links to archived YouTube broadcasts, sorted by topic.
Of course, the older the broadcast, the greater chance that some of the information presented might be out of date. Be sure to check for current information on our prospective students and current students pages — and contact the Polytechnic’s Office of Recruitment, Retention and Diversity with your questions.
Everyone is welcome to watch any of these broadcasts, whether you’re a high school student thinking about your future or a senior who has applied and been admitted to Purdue. Broadcasts about our six academic schools/departments and their majors were originally aired for admitted students, but all prospective students are welcome to watch and learn more about the Polytechnic’s academics.
