The Polytechnic Institute is unique at Purdue in that its programs are offered at nine different locations throughout the state of Indiana, including several locations that are not satellite campuses of the Purdue University system. Each Statewide location offers degree programs that follow the same curriculum requirements as those of the main campus in West Lafayette, although not all programs may be offered at Statewide locations.[5] The nine Statewide locations are: Anderson, Columbus, Indianapolis, Kokomo, Lafayette, New Albany, Richmond, South Bend, and Vincennes, Indiana.

At the main campus in West Lafayette, most Purdue Polytechnic faculty offices, classrooms, and laboratories are located in the Knoy Hall of Technology, Michael Golden Laboratories, Young Hall, Heavilon Hall, A.A. Potter Engineering Center, and the Purdue University Airport.


On February 15, 1964, the Purdue University Board of Trustees approved a proposal for a new undergraduate school — the School of Technology — that would organize Purdue's applied learning programs into a single administrative unit. The proposal went into effect July 1, 1964. In January 2005, the School of Technology was renamed the College of Technology.[1] All other schools at Purdue were renamed with the exceptions of the Krannert School of Management and the School of Veterinary Medicine.

In 2015, the Board of Trustees approved its current name in support of the college’s transformation and as part of President Mitch Daniels’ Purdue Moves initiative.[6][7]
