Ready to Become a Boilermaker?


Purdue University is partnering with ThriveDX, a global leader in cyber training and talent development, on a program to find and train new personnel or reskill existing employees for roles in cybersecurity. The partnership stems from ThriveDX’s selection as one of the organizations providing “Related Technical Instruction” for Apprenti, a nonprofit focused on technology-oriented apprenticeship that won a $23.5 million dollar grant through the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Good Jobs Challenge.

Grace College

Grace College and Purdue University Online have created a novel consortium agreement that is used as a basis for the partnership. The goal is to enable Grace students to earn credits online toward a Purdue master’s degree, positioning them to complete their master’s rapidly after graduating from Grace College and to then enter the workforce with two degrees.


Purdue University partners with Simplilearn, an international online bootcamp for digital economy skills training, to offer a range of non-credit courses for professionals looking to jump-start their careers in high-demand fields such as data science and analytics, artificial intelligence and machine learning, and supply chain and digital marketing. The non-credit courses use a combination of self-paced videos and live virtual classes to enable hands-on exposure to practical, industry-aligned learning.
