The Engineering Technology Learning Community is focused on exploring the range of opportunities in Engineering Technology. A primary goal of the LC is to help classmates become better acquainted with each other through common first-semester courses and a number of social activities. In addition, students are given the opportunity to participate in industry tours, meetings with professional speakers, laboratory workshops, and service events. Connections with fellow Engineering Technology students and faculty created through this LC will benefit students while at Purdue and beyond graduation. It is possible to participate in the Women in Technology LC in combination with the Engineering Technology LC.
