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)
We hope to talk with you soon!
Dates, times & topics are subject to change.
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.
Boiler Gold Rush Polytechnic Welcome
August 20, 2021 • 2 p.m. (Eastern Time)
Let's get together virtually as new students at Purdue and in our college! Carrie Berger, interim dean of Purdue Polytechnic, will welcome you. We will discuss classroom etiquette and integrity, remaining healthy and safe during in-person classes and lab sessions, staying connected and getting support when you need it, getting involved in student organizations, and having fun as Polytechnic students. Our panelists will include Nathan Mentzer and Dawn Laux (professors), Lauren Lucas (academic advisor), and Toni Munguia, Ryne Kerchner and Cyndi Lynch (from our Office of Recruitment, Retention and Diversity — our "go-to team" for help when you need it).
Watch this space!

Replays, sorted by topic
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Of course, the older the broadcast, the greater chance that some of the information presented might be out of date.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.
