Location

The College of Technology is unique at Purdue in that its programs are offered at eleven different locations throughout the state of Indiana, including several locations that are not satellite campuses of the Purdue University System. This arrangement is collectively known as the College of Technology Statewide. 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. [ [http://www.tech.purdue.edu/cot_statewide/index.cfm College of Technology Statewide : Purdue University College of Technology ] ] The ten Statewide locations are:

* Anderson
* Muncie
* Columbus
* Greensburg
* Indianapolis
* Kokomo
* Lafayette
* New Albany
* Richmond
* South Bend/Elkhart

The entirety of the College of Technology at the main campus in West Lafayette, including faculty offices, classrooms, and laboratories, is located in the Knoy Hall of Technology and Michael Golden Laboratories.

History

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. All other schools at Purdue were renamed with the exceptions of the Krannert School of Management and the School of Veterinary Medicine.
