Purdue Engineering Undergraduate Education is among the global leaders in educating engineers, named as the only U.S. public university in the global Top 10. Boilermaker Engineers have access to the best programs in 16 engineering majors throughout the College of Engineerings schools and divisions and find themselves part of a vibrant community of premier talent. Being a leader at Purdue University can mean many things, and leadership is not limited to just those with titles/positions. Student Organizations & Involvement, a department within Student Activities and Organizations, works towards grooming the next set of leaders by encouraging students to start their own organization and providing them with the tools, training and resources to successfully manage their student organization at Purdue. G.R.I.T.+: Global, Research, Industry, Teamwork and More Receiving a degree from Purdue University is about more than the classes our students take and the grades they earn for them. Purdue Engineering echoes President Mitch Daniels proclamation that Boilermakers emotional strength, or grit, will be essential for success during students time at Purdue and in the future as they begin their careers. Grit comes from within and is built from a drive to succeed, the ability to overcome obstacles, and the perseverance required to make it to graduation day. A Purdue Engineering degree speaks volumes about the skills acquired and experiences gained that go beyond the lecture hall. GRIT programs enrich, challenge, and deepen the heart and mind.
