Purdue Polytechnic to dedicate nation’s largest smart manufacturing ecosystem for engineering technology

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — Purdue Polytechnic Institute’s School of Engineering Technology will dedicate four smart manufacturing facilities, the most expansive learning ecosystem of its kind in the United States.

Located in Dudley and Lambertus halls on Purdue’s West Lafayette campus, the facilities will be dedicated Nov. 30, 2023. The event will be a wider-reaching celebration of Purdue’s new smart manufacturing curriculum, with its goal of revamping engineering technology education and preparing students for industry.

“The smart manufacturing industrial informatics degree is the cornerstone of our commitment to advancing engineering technology education,” said Daniel Castro, dean of Purdue Polytechnic. “These labs are not just facilities — they are incubators for innovation, where students can synthesize the full spectrum of Industry 4.0 technologies with hands-on problem-solving.”
